Cuddle Up

This is from Glen Echo Park. The booth really isn’t for anything. Behind it is a stage area but its all open and there is no reason to buy a ticket from what I have ever seen.

I like night photography. This image isn’t that spectacular but I just like the contrast of colors in the image. You get the subtle reds with the hard blue neon.

There wasn’t a whole lot I could do about the neon blowing out. Short of masking in a lower key version but then I would have lost something in the image and it was meant to be fun, not perfection.

This is a HDR image. I just did a single image and went from there. Once I was happy I did some editing in Photoshop, mainly around dodging and burning and called it done.

    I would love this photo no matter what it looked like. I grew up going to Glen Echo Park in the 50s. This was my dad’s tradition. This was the final adventure of our summer vacation. He and my mom would get all (5) of us children ready for our a day at Glen Echo Park before heading back to school in the fall. We rode a bus and a trolley car to arrive at the entrance to our adventure. It was the best and one I will never forget.
