day 344: sumo

What I like about my taking pictures is not only the pictures and the creative expression, no it’s also how it transforms my vision. Often when I’m walking around with my camera I notice great details like this little toy sumo fighter which was sitting on some scaffolding near my house. If I had just walked home without the aim to take pictures, I probably would have walked right past it without paying attention.

These days I’m really getting the hang of black and white conversions with Alien Skin Exposure. They pop, they have a great range of tones and the colour sensitivity can be changed with just a few clicks. It’s easy and I’m really happy with the results as well!

  1. That’s a beautiful composition, right there, made all the better by what I assume is the cheapness of the figure.
