Less is More

I just love abandoned!
While in Northern Indiana came across this abandoned park. I love places like this and was thrilled that the front entrance was open, thanks to one of the gates that had fallen down. Upon entering I saw this wheelchair and knew this image was going to be my blog post. There were so many wonderful photographs to be captured here. I could have photographed here all day long.
I worked on processing this image last night in preparation to blog. I app'd it with many choices and combinations, however the image wasn't speaking to me. I wasn't happy and fell asleep frustrated. This morning I went in several different directions continuing to open this app and that app. However I felt that I was creating something different than what I wanted.
So I stepped way back and instead of 'apping' it. I used Filterstorm to make minor adjustments. I used the tools available to lead the viewers eye to the parts of the image that I wanted them to go.
So the lesson I was reminded of today is sometimes less is more.



  1. There are so many people,it seems, app'ing for the sake of app'ing. It's nice to see a wonderful image made "straight"...mostly.. 8o)

  2. Is this outside of Angola Indiana? I think I saw it when I was up there a few months ago but did not take any photos.

  3. Teri is this in Chesterton Porter county? The waterpark on hwy 20? If so you are 15 mins. from me.


What do you think?
