All I could think of was East Liverpool in the fog when I woke up. How grand that would be to photograph the buildings through the fog imagining they would be popping out of the midst of it. When arrived at the destination of Chester WV-situated across the Ohio River from East Liverpool-I was hoping to find a decent view. Drove around the streets on the hill looking through and over houses, roof tops, poles and wires. Well, didn't think I was going to find any of all the city. But, okay-I will just work with I could find. There were a few unobstructed partial views-thats okay-Happy with that! Oh wait when I get home, the buildings weren't popping & standing out like I visioned, The fog was thick and could barely tell they were there. So experimented with other options to make it pleasurable. Hope the revisions were suitable! Thank you for looking!
I planned for a couple days to go to Chester WV to find a location to take a photo of East Liverpool, OH. Drove a few back streets to find a suitable one. Actually there was a few spots but the view was foggy.
From one of those streets followed a road around a valley and came out in Newell WV. What a nice drive, I enjoyed the tree lined, creek, curvy roads. Sort of an amusement park feel but with better scenery! Took another side road & found a few abandoned buildings on top-with surrounding fields, What a lovely lovely setting! Have no idea why places like these look they were just up n left when its such an ideal place to live. For whatever the reason it made for photo opportunities, quite the excitement for me, to find it. I was tantalyzed & mesmerized by the scene and having become interested in history of general area, it left much to my imagination.
With recently downloading Topaz Labs' trial B&W Effects-I thought I'd try a few filter effects which seemed befitting for the scene.
