tilt shift fake miniature photography, this one of the nearby town city (sorry, Berlin) of Berlin. I’d hoped to do an entire series of these for the April part of my “show” at White Mountain Cafe. It won’t happen, because I just can’t get enough of these to work. I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t look as good on paper as it does here on the screen. Also, I miss “real” photography and I have enough learning ahead of me without a gimmick distracting me.
So with that project D.O.A., here are a couple of the photos that did kinda work, which made the life size buildings sorta look like they’re miniature.
Closer to home with our local baseball diamond:
Here’s another shot from the same park:
I like this one from a pull-out on Highway 16 south of town that I shot in October:
The entrance to the Mount Washington Auto Road further down the highway:
The Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, site of a famous conference in the 1940s that gave us the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and a couple dozen stupid conspiracy theories:
I’ll close with my best, using a photo that I took in 2011 back in Portland. This is from the Tram that crosses Interstate 5 and climbs the hill to Oregon Health Sciences University:
I might get back to this fake mini stuff later. Until then, a return to “real” photography. I don’t think I’ve had a decent shot worth framing since Christmas.
