Last weekend, Art Students League of Denver held their annual Art Market. Sunday, about noon, I headed to the market. As usual, I parked several blocks away where street parking is easier. On the way to the market, I passed by an apartment block that had really neat and tidy yard with window wells. I composed this image to show the receding lines of the window wells.

While browsing art work at the market, I noticed this artist taking refuge in the shade of an adjacent apartment block.

Soon after a group of visitors approached. I waited until they moved into the frame and made this image as the artist and visitors were all in key positions for this composition.

After spending a couple of hours at the market, I found a silk-screen print that I purchased. Soon after, I headed back to the car, stopping by a laundromat that had a painted wall that had weathered over the years to create an interesting pattern. Here I did not have to wait long until several people passed by. I made this image of one passer-by — probably headed for the market.

A few minutes later, another person passed by in the opposite direction. This image was processed in Painteresque to enhance the texture of the painted wall. This wall would make a great backdrop for portrait images especially with the north light. I wonder how it would look nearer sunrise?

Later in the day, I headed over the the gym. After working out, leaving the gym, the low sun cast shadows on the walls of the adjacent parking garage. I processed this image in Snapseed, to open up the shadows and tone the bright highlights of the wall on the right.

This morning, I was sitting out on the patio for breakfast. Last week our neighbor moved out, leaving an untidy yard and long grass. Yesterday, garden services moved into the yard to cut the grass and clean up. The neighbor also left reed matting that has been attached to the fence for several months. I have made images of this fence in the past, but the mat is in much poorer condition now after months in the sun, wind and and rain. The top of the mat could never form a straight line when attached to the fence — it always formed an S-shape. This is great for composition. With the light overcast cloud, this works well for a black and white image, below.

All images for this week’s post were made and processed with an iPhone.
