This was my first full week without taking daily photos. I actually went hiking on Sunday for the specific reason of getting a good photo before the week was over. And I did, I got a good photo. Not a great photo, but a good photo. One that I could post without embarrassment. But then a funny thing happened. Out of habit, I reviewed the images that I shot over the week. And, in fact, I had taken a picture the previous day, of a light fixture in Torchy’s Tacos. Not only was it good, it was better than good. I’ve been collecting photos of ceiling lamps over the past few years, and I found I really liked this one. This became my favorite image of the week.

Spiral Lights

iPhone X, standard lens, Halide app.

Digital Darkroom. The big change here was to use the Touch Retouch app to clean up the image. I had to take out an electrical outlet, a fire suppressant sprinkler, and two walls that intruded into the sides of the photograph. After that, the simple clean lines were all I needed. Minor changes to clarity and whites and I was done.

In case you were wondering, here was the other image:

WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
