On a bike ride to eat lunch and pie at a restaurant in LaPorte, I saw this van on the other side of the road. I knew it had to be photographed, so as we rode home I stopped to make some photographs. This became my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom. I knew when I snapped the shutter† that the point of this image was to go crazy with the van colors. I used the Snapseed app to increase saturation, and apply a pseudo-HDR effect. I then masked out the rest of image, keeping the crazy colors centered on the van. Back in Lightroom, I adjusted contrast, highlights, and shadows to finish the image.
† Can you still say this when there is no actual shutter, and nothing goes “snap”?
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.
