I've not been "out and about", but rather staying close to the Capitol (New Mexico Legislature is in session) without a camera, but always carry my phone (camera) . . . which has provided me a few opportunities to take photos.
Below is a photo of the New Mexico State flag which flies on the east side of the Capitol . . . when rendering the photo with Nancy's textures, the first thing that came to mind was "Red Sky at Morning", a novel written by Richard Bradford of a young man coming of age in a northern New Mexico town during WW II.
|"Red Sky at Morning"/Grunge1, Hue @ 100% and Grunge4, ColorBurn @ 50%|
|"Bataan Memorial Building"/Grunge 3, Color @ 100% and Grunge 5, LinearBurn @ 67%|
What I started out with was possibly a little morose . . . so just to add a tad bit of color, I played around with the photos taken in Michaels artificial flower department!
|"Burst of Color I"/Grunge6, difference @ 100% and Grunge2, overlay @ 100%|
|"Burst of Color II"/Square1 with level/brightness adjustments, difference@100%, Square4 with levels adjustment, vivid light @100% and Grunge2, multiply @ 100%|
