This is what used to be the working entrance to Markin Glen Park in Kalamazoo -- the Douglas Avenue entrance. The green pillars on the sides of the drive once held swinging barriers of some sort and when I decided to shoot them, I thought they would be the primary 'subjects' of the photo. Then I noticed the sky and clouds and all the leaves on the ground and pavement and decided to go for a more dramatic look. So I set up the tripod as low as was possible while keeping the camera out of the leaves and shot upwards toward the sky -- a total of 6 separate shots blended together for higher dynamic range and well ... there you have it. Oh, yeah ... note the address up top if you haven't already. Welcome to GaryFilkins.com !! ;o)
