Blog Header - September 8, 2010

I took the picture for this blog header just one week ago today. We noticed a lot of black smoke rising behind our house, so we called 911 to report it, we grabbed our cameras, and headed to the fire. It was a large barn fire, so we weren’t able to get very close to the fire, but we did get a lot of photos of the emergency vehicles coming and going and the various emergency services personnel engaged in the firefight.

I added the border and the blog title and then aged the picture in Photoshop. I cut the picture into two sections to increase the effect of the aged photo. I like the final result primarily because the trucks and the people’s outfits make it quite clear that it’s not really an old photo.
