Small Town Details

We went for a drive to Yarnell a few days ago, and I had a great time photographing some random sights along the main drag.

A painter was touching up the trim outside the antique store before hanging up the new sign,


A highlight at the end of the day was visit to the salvage yard, where the last two photos were taken.  I loved the irony of the playground sign placed next to the highway sign along with the motors and other items.


And then there were the  random doors propped up by the road.


All of these photos have textures added. The first two have a painting filter applied as well.

  2. These photos are all wonderful. The composition and depth of field of the painter are perfect. What an intriguing photo.

    Your composition and processing of the signs tell the story and draw the viewer into the shot. The doors are whimsical and fun.

    The more I look at these shots the more I love them.

  4. Your special processing really made these photos so fun to look at….the junk yard doesn’t look like one would imagine, but a place to enjoy wandering around and finding some great props! Small towns seem to offer many unique sights, perfect for us photographers! Thanks for sharing Melinda!
