There are times when I only have a few minutes to be out of the house during my daily routine. Saturday and Sunday's are a bit like that and every week I have a half hour up at Crowfoot Crossing while Cool takes his guitar or vocal lessons. I usually try and take a quick walk and look for something to photograph. I look for things like repetition, abstraction, juxtaposition or details.
Now store display's are always a chance to find these type of elements and I was fortunate to discover a couple of opportunities while I was walking through Rona's Christmas decorations. These large snowmen caught my eye and I angled my iPhone to get the repeating figures to line up into a composition that I was happy with. I then saw this display of small buildings that are very popular for people to develop their own winter dioramas. The little church was my focus of attention and again I took a quick photo.
Once I made the capture I used Snapseed on my iPhone to crop them and then the drama filter to enhance the details. I used the center focus feature to soften the edges and darken the background slightly. I finished with the frames for these results.
