You Capture: Letters

I haven’t done a You Capture for a while. ?Frankly, I’ve been busy and keep forgetting to check out what the week’s theme is. ?A few weeks ago it was “rustic” and I put a sticky note on my monitor so I would remember to find something. ?That worked out well. ?I’m sure the only rustic look at anything I got was that of my face first thing in the morning.

The goal of this project is to take a new photo each week. ?I will also say that I didn’t even look at this week’s theme until tonight (Wednesday). ?The theme was letters. ?It is currently 9:00 at night and I’m not the best at indoor shooting and am very uninspired by what is in my house right now so I dug something out of the archives. ?It may not be a new photo, but I used the opportunity to try out some of the new features on Photoshop CS4. ?We all know how much I loves me a good Photoshop technique. ?I also happen to like to take photos of signs, especially murals.

This is a photo of the Harmon building on Pacific Ave. in downtown Tacoma, WA. ?I used to live in the building. ?From this view my apartment was the the third one from the top, third one from the left. ?My cat (Isis) walked out onto the ledge of the building one afternoon. ?We lived on the 7th floor. ?I love this building. ?The mural on the other side is bright yellow and you can see it from across town. ?This side is the less?noticeable?view.
