Texture Thursday – Weary Traveler

I don’t think there is much to say about this one. When processing the photo, it did remind me of something from Post Secret (link here). The skinny on the site is that anonymous people create postcards and mail in “secrets” they have been hoarding. Some are funny, some are knife-edge honest, some are ambiguous, some are heart braking, but all are artful. I’m not exactly sure how to access the archives. Currently, their posting is on Mother’s Day. There are also great coffee-table style collections in print that are great.

Processing notes: I borrowed the paper-postcard texture from Black Cat Photography. I then simply blended the postcard layer over the photo, the feet of a giant chicken statue, inexplicably bolted to the concrete of a parking lot in the abandoned part of the city. Enjoy.
