Do you remember the movie, Pleasantville, where everything was in black and white in the beginning and then it gradually started turning to color? I loved that movie and its metaphor of creativity and bringing things to life. As most of you know who follow and read my blog regularly, I live in a small town in the suburbs of New York, called Pleasantville! Please see my post of my colorful hometown, Pleasantville, at http://loredana-donovan.blogspot.com/2012/04/small-town-usa.html.
The topic this week at the creative site, Friday My Town Shoot Out! at http://mytownshootout.blogspot.com/ is "interiors," so I thought I would take you for a small tour of the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville. I started out by taking black and white photos and then gradually adding color. These are straight out of my camera without any digital editing. The first black and white photo is the front entrance to the movie theater. This really cool theater only shows independent, cultural films and lots of foreign movies, too, with subtitles. Very entertaining and artistic!
This photo is also in black and white and shows the interior staircase that takes you up to the second floor. I shot this from the first floor, looking up, as it is an open space. I like the geometric lines, angles, and the circles in the railing. A modern design. I'm also linking this photo to another creative site, Pixel Dust Photo Art at http://www.pixeldustphotoart.com/, where the theme this week is "black and white."
Here, the photo is still monochromatic, but I added blue. This is the interior entrance to the second theater. The cool blue poster matches the blue door, and I took this from an angle to create perspective and movement, as you're walking towards the door.
Here, it goes from blue to red for the interior entrance to the third theater. I love the bright red door and the modern carpet design. So, what's behind door #3?
Lastly, all primary colors, blue, red, yellow, green and a touch of gold in this whimsical sculpture inside the theater. It's perpetually in motion with a little ball traveling through all the different gadgets. Something fun to watch while you wait on line to get your ticket! So how about a movie this weekend? Invite a date and have fun!
