Last weekend we took a stroll through Kansas City to check out the Crown Center.  On the way there we drove passed this awesome suspension cable sculpture.  I love sculpture, it is actually an old past time of mine, I was once commissioned to do a sculpture on the dunes of Stinson Beach for a TV show called “Superscapes”.  You may have never seen it, and if you have I can say “Oh so you were the one that saw me on TV!”

I could not resist myself, while the wife got the boy in the car I ran across the street and shot my merry heart out.  Luckily I made it back to the car before those clouds turned in to a nasty storm.


I was playing in Photoshop with one of the HDR’s when I thought “Man, it would have been nice if I would have pano’ed this…”   So instead, I duplicated it, flipped it horizontal and stuck it right next to itself and BAM, there was a recipe for interesting.  If you do this, I suggest you clone stamp the seems away and make it appear less obvious, this will keep people looking a little longer before they put two and two together!

I am off to Photoshop World tomorrow, but I will be posting while I am on the road from the Expo, be sure to stay tuned!

P.S.  Here is my Stinson Beach Sculpture, just in case you missed the show 3 years ago….
