This week had a delightful stretch of warm weather, and we went out for a family lunch. While waiting for a table, I walked a few blocks to a new building at the corner of Linden and Willow. The sidewalk was made of patterned bricks. I put together a few different compositions, and this became my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom. After the obvious conversion to black and white, I increased the exposure by half of a stop and then made the usual adjustments to increase contrast (increase contrast, highlights, and white, reduce shadows and blacks). I finished by adding a touch of dehaze to further extenuate the patterns.
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.
