It’s time for another Brenda Photo Challenge! The current theme is Ruby Red Macro. I’m jumping into this challenge at the last minute. There isn’t much time to spare these hot summer days for me to do some new photography. So I took a little liberty with an old image taken on one of our Kentucky travels.
This is a close up of an antique emergency light at the picturesque Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. The name on the light is for W. S. Darley, an American company who has been making fire and emergency equipment (including fire engines) since 1908. To emphasize the weathered, gritty appearance, I altered the image using a Topaz filter plug-in for Photoshop and applied a textured layer. The camera settings were f/9, 1/200 second, and ISO 100.
