an old fading paint job, once red and now blue, on a brick wall in new york city

Red Wall Blue

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

The fading paint job on a wall in Greenwich Village in New York City. I wish I had a view camera to shoot this. If anyone knows how I could digitally remap it, I’d love to know. I hate that the lines aren’t straight across and that I didn’t quite get it dead-on.

  • oh you mean the distortion? i guess you can fix it on the filter>lens correction part of PS.. ;D

  • @rian hmm. i might just have to try that. i haven’t upgraded since CS 1. maybe now i have a reason :)

  • i have no idea how to remap this. but of course you won’t be surprised that i like it the way it is. it feels like the wall is bending away from me and i like that feeling. almost as if i can stare it down.

    love the paint color too.
