The sign called this a lily pond. But it seemed strange that there were no water lilies.
If you notice carefully, these images were taken from the same spot. (I was sitting at a picnic table waiting for a friend) I like both of these … both the one with the young woman who brings something to the image … and the lower image for the lack of people emphasized by the empty picnic table.
You may notice that the closest tree shows up in both.
A pleasant July Saturday afternoon found me spending some time at Volunteer Park in Seattle. It had been years since I had visited … in the ’70’s I had lived nearby and was there frequently. It was nice to see the Kiddies Pool was still used and not completely overrun by hordes of folks. (maybe it would have been more crowded if it had been 10 degrees warmer)
The water tower at Volunteer Park in Seattle is an amazing visit. The structure is open inside for climbing to the top and having 360 degree views of the surroundings. There are two sets of stairs that curve around the inside between the exterior brick and interior metal tank. A nice workout to climb to the view to the west with downtown Seattle and Puget Sound in the distance.
This is another image that was taken through normal processing in Lightroom and then into Photoshop for the Edge Detect filter. Then back in Lightroom for some additional colorization.
