Today’s Photo101 theme is Street and establishing the shot.
I drove through Amarillo’s historic US Highway 66 district and just could not find a cool scene. US 66 was a major highway from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California from the 1920’s until 1985 when it was removed from the US highway system by the Interstate Highway system in its entirety.
Instead of focusing on US 66, I found this cool
yellow red brick road in the Plemons Eakle Historic District near downtown Amarillo. For establishing the shot, I remembered something I heard on a phoneography video. That is to think about trying a different perspective. In other words, establish the shot from a different angle. I held my camera about 3 inches off the ground for this shot. This is what a squirrel would see when scurrying across the street.
Today was cloudy with a heavy overcast sky so the colors did not pop as they would on a bright sunny day.
Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.
