Good Day. A short post today as I had a late night. In my role of President of the Chamber of Commerce I had to meet with the City Council last night. It was not a pleasant experience and reminds me of just how much disdain I have for politics.
Which brings me to another subject that I have disdain for. Power lines. They are the bane of photographers everywhere. I can’t imagine how much time and effort is spent cropping them out of an image or using the clone tool or the healing brush to remove them from a scene or how many shots that are simply not taken because of power lines.
We have become so accustomed that our subconscious mind actually filters them out of our vision. I have taken many images only to be later frustrated by the number of power lines in the image. I remember watching a video lesson from Scott Kelby some time ago and he was talking about the time that he took this beautiful landscape image. In fact he even called a friend of his while there to tell him about the area.
He said he was just flabbergasted when, in post processing, he noticed a number of power lines running through his image that he had not seen when taking the shot. It is also called cognitive blindness.
Anyway enough rambling (I did say this was a short post didn’t I?) The image above is from Dubuque’s power station and I wanted to shoot it so that I wouldn’t have to spend any time removing power lines. 🙂
Enjoy your day. Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
