# 254 - "Reflections. . ."

“Photography is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” - Alfred Stieglitz

Last Stop

Someone in our camera club shared a photo of an abandoned school bus in Carver so the hunt was on to locate it! What added to my interest was the cluster of birches in front of the former school children transport. It’s almost as if its last driver crashed into this clump of trees and left it there. 

I converted it to monochromatic and then reselected the reflection for a return to color via Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2. I did return to reshoot the bus after a snowstorm but someone had chopped down the trees. I think that removal of the birches changed the impact of the setting for future captures.

Joining the "Love that Gordon Club" we have Phil, EMO, Michael P., Michael K., Deana, Tony, Joani, and Michelle.
