So we’re a week in and I’m realizing that actually having a chance to get out with my camera and take a photo can be a pain in the ass given how busy I am. So, on those off days, I’m going to pull something from the SD cards I have laying around and publish that, following the editing guidelines I set. What you see here is one of the monoliths in Chicago’s Millenium Park. I was there for work earlier this year to tour the Mortal Kombat studio, get early hands-on time with the game and interview its developers. I spent some time just wandering around with my camera on my last day in the city. There is a pair of these facing each other, and the front side of them have a really terrifying, CGI face that resides deep in the Uncanny Valley and genuinely frightened the hell out of me in broad daylight. This one wasn’t on that day (there was a cleaning crew inside scraping sediment deposit off the glass bricks), which helped make the photo what it is.
The only edits I made here were adjusting some of the highlights, clarity and saturation in Photoshop’s RAW editor.
