First Signs of Spring
14 March 2014 -- 73/365
Providence, Rhode Island
I went downcity for a bit of street photography today. The temperature was still below freezing, but the wind didn't have that winter bite to it. Walking though Kennedy Plaza, I noticed that the food trucks have returned after their winter hibernation. More importantly, the hot dog street vendors are back. When it comes to leading indicators for spring, that ranks right up there with spotting robins on your front lawn. (Or, after this winter, just spotting your front lawn.) For the record, the hot dog was delicious. There's really only one way to make a hot dog taste better than one bought from a street vendor, and that's to buy one inside Fenway Park.
Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX. I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, and boost black. A levels adjustment was added in PSE.
