Photo: Hello Grasshopper

Hello Grasshopper
Ashley says hello to a 17×11 print of Yellow Grasshopper. That was hard to carry around, but it was worth it so they could meet. She’s funny and cute. The grasshopper is too, but he’s more the serious type. 😉

She was smoking (see her left hand), and I rested the print on the ash can nearby. It was the only way to get them both in the shot looking at each other. Smoking is still as popular as ever.

I added brightness and vignetting, and corrected her skin tones. I set my camera to sunshine white balance, but it was a bit too bluish for this light.

Next time you see a grasshopper, say hello!

  1. Great picture! Only the wooden handle is an unnecessary distraction.

      1. I mean the birch-colored thing between the two focused seats.

        1. Oh my goodness I see it now! I never noticed that before… I’ve looked at this photo dozens of times. Printed dozens of copies of it. It is annoying… and it is a wooden handle.

      2. Maybe it’s not a wooden handle, but I still don’t like it 😉
