Texturing to add depth and drama...

I have an ongoing love of photographing bicycles everywhere I go! It's sort of a personal thematic type project that I add to from my travels or everyday journeys. I like old bikes, the older the better, the more "personality"and character they seem to acquire from years of use and travel. This bicycle was photographed against an aging stucco wall that was divided in color, the two tones made for a graphic image. To enhance the aged look, I layered the bicycle photo with another photo of texture that I photographed near the same location. Have fun with textures, shoot your own, and start a collection! ~ Deb
