I see a red door and I want it painted black

Aaaaaaaand now for another update on this year’s Project 365….

Day 59 (2012-02-28) ~ I see a red door and I want it painted black…. Yeah, I have had The Rolling Stones stuck in my head ever since I snapped this picture. LOL.

Day 60 (2012-02-29) ~ It was a windy, windy day in the Windy City.

Day 61 (2012-03-01) ~ I grabbed a quick picture of the "L" train that night, zooming past me as it left the station. Okay, technically, it's the Brown Line train, but I loved how the train crossing lights made the silvery train glow red in the near-darkness, so—just for fun—I amped the reds up in the processing (obviously!) and I'm going to call it ‘The Red Line’.... because I can. ;-)

And there we go for now. I’m about 16% of the way through the project. There will be more on the way soon!

Sort of "Red, white, & blue" seeing them in a group.

That door needs to stay red, thank you very much. :o)

Are you doing your editing in PS or in camera? Not that it matters at all I'm just curious. Looks amazing!

I'm just here for a kiss. AND to laugh AGAIN about the toilet paper issue. (To quote my mother "I don't want to die with all my cash tied up in toilet paper.")

Jesus I love you guys.

Scope: There was a big attraction to red this week. I can't quite explain it.

Joshua: Agreed! It's a fabulous door!

Veggie: I definitely prefer editing in either PS or Picnik rather than in the camera. I like all the different editing options on the computer. Endless possibilities!! The train one was quick and easy though. I just had to crop it a teeny little bit and then amp up the coloring in PS so the reds became more vibrant and dominant. And thanks!! :-)

VM: I, on the other hand, would much rather die with all my money tied up in toilet paper than risk--*gasp of horror!*--running out!!!! ;-)
