Yet much has changed over the decades. Buildings have been replaced. Businesses have gone and come. So I decided that one of my 2011 art projects would be to photograph elements of the street today. But I decided I wanted to try something different, something that would capture a distinctive vision rather that just pictures. For lack of a term, I call the emerging results photodrawings. First, I take digital photographs. Second, I enhance them to highlight colors, architectural details, people or objects. These saved images are, third, converted into computer-generated drawings to which I may make additional enhancements. Finally, I merge and blend parts, or all, of the original photographs with the drawings to bring out details that I want in the final image. Below are some works in progress. Comments are invited.
