Wait, what? Observant readers will note that I skipped ahead from July Week 5 to August Week 3. This is because we went on vacation for those weeks, and I have hundreds of photos still be sorted and developed. I decided to skip ahead and come back to those weeks when my editing is done.

Outside of my office is a small building, little more than a shed really. There seems to be an office inside, but it’s only sporadically occupied. The outside walls seem to shift now and again- somedays plain walls, other times colorful graffiti or murals. At one point over the summer, a small poem appeared on the walls, written by Karl Woodeye, and this became my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom. Obviously I started this image off with a black and white conversion. From there, my goal was to accentuate the words as much as possible. I accomplished this by increasing contrast and highlights, and by lowering shadows. Surprisingly, lowering clarity seemed to help and unsurprisingly, raising dehaze helped as well.

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.
