Life is just one grand sweet song, so start the music. Ronald Reagan
Yesterday was an absolutely wonderful day! I took this photograph from the Santa Monica Pier. Sometimes something (or someone) just captures your attention, and this was one of those moments. I saw this musician from the boardwalk and took a long distance shot.
“And when he finished speakin’ He turned back toward the window. Crushed out his cigarette And faded off to sleep…” -The Gambler, Don Schlitz
Well this was certainly random. 😉
I’m trying to figure out ways to create unique collages. The main image (the casino town) and the cigar sign (taken off the side of a building) were shot in Central City, Colorado- which I visited once while I lived in the area. I love signs painted on brick!
The rainbow was imported from Phoenix. 🙂
Honestly… I don’t love it- but I like that I was able to combine images in a way that they somewhat blend. I think the town got a little distorted along the way… it looks off keel. The cigar sign is actually hiding a row of parked cars, so that worked out well.
I think it would be a fun way to do road trip collages, actually piecing the images together to make a complete scene. We shall see.
Anyway, I guess the end result of this experiment is a message: Gambling doesn’t pay.
Another thing I learned throughout my travels, adventures and experiences. 😉
