Happy Accident: Head Transplant on Hollywood Boulevard

Hollywood Boulevard street photo by Jim Newberry.

I shot this picture on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame last week; shooting passersby reflected in a shop window. What at first seemed to be a pretty standard reflection turned out to be more interesting upon closer examination (I didn’t do any Photoshopping, other than basic brightness/contrast/color adjustments).

Here’s another shot, taken a few seconds before the above photo:

Gutter of Stars

Motorbike reflected in puddle, looks like it's in the sky with stars. Photo by Jim Newberry.

 

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars,” Lord Darlington famously said in Oscar Wilde’s play Lady Windermere’s Fan (and of course more recently quoted by Chrissie Hynde in the Pretenders’ track Message of Love). This photo is un-retouched, other than overall contrast/brightness adjustments. Shot near Chiang Mai Gate, February 24th, 2014.
