Photo: No Wheeled Boxes

Photo: No Wheeled Boxes

This was a sign at Wal-Mart that apparently means “no trucks,” but I thought it looked funny. The truck on the picture looks more like a box with four wheels. So I’ve decided to title this “No Wheeled Boxes.”

This photo is from 2005, but the source image is dull and ugly. Using the curves tool, I added a lot of contrast, making the sky a bright blue and the colors white, black, and red on the sign very vivid. Then, I selectively desaturated the blue in the sky to prevent color banding when I make prints of this photo. The red will look fine, but blue is a particularly vulnerable color for some reason.

I don’t talk much about this, but it costs me $115 per month to keep this blog and my other sites online. If you could make a donation or make your purchases through my Amazon affiliate link, I will be very appreciative.
