Friday Foto File: Outside the Gym on a Rainy Afternoon

This shot was taken through a wet windshield, so it was blurry to begin with, but to further obscure the identity of the half-dressed person working out in front of the door, I decided to digitally alter the original photo with Photoshop's cutout filter. I like the effect, and I really like the colors in this shot.

The only other thing I have to say about it is that this is about as close as I like to get to a gym.


  1. I have yet to venture into that place called Photoshop. Bravo for your efforts though!

  2. Duly Inspired, I think you'd have fun with it. The main thing I use it for is to adjust the lighting in a photo, but it's also handy for "erasing" little things that mar a photo -- for example, a fresh pile of poop in an otherwise charming dog picture. The filters are fun to play with, too, especially on photos that are blurry or otherwise unusable in their original form.

  3. I keep forgetting to play around with my photo program.

    Closest I got to a gym was a brief membership in the local Y, where I swam but didn't use any machines. I wish the world was safe enough for people to just walk outside without worrying about getting mugged or assaulted.

  4. Janet, I agree with you. I used to enjoy walking for exercise, but now I'd have to drive to someplace where I could walk safely.
