They didn’t need Photoshop in the Middle Ages!
I attended a writers’ seminar Sunday afternoon at Notre Dame Plaza, a beautiful retirement community across the street from Mission Dolores near 16th & Dolores. We gathered in a chapel with stained glass windows, and during breaks I indulged in my hobby, using my iPhone 4. The original iPhone 4 has a flawed camera compared with later versions, but I’ve learned to exploit its weaknesses to my advantage, taking extreme closeups of the glass panes to use the textures created during the manufacture of the colored glass to do interesting things to the background scenery. No edits aside from cropping out distracting elements along the edges.
I found this window at the bottom of a stairwell.
Even the stairway has its “textural” interest.
