The Pool at Two Guns

What 1950’s era abandoned rest stop along the old Route 66 would be complete without a graffiti covered empty pool in a run down campground?  Luckily Two Guns has one… and it did not disappoint.  I had to utilize my superior Photoshop skills the killer features in Photoshop CS5 to eradicate some of the more offensive and NC-17 rated slogans and pictures (as well as the legs of my tripod… doh!).  I figured the only way to shoot the pool was to use the Fish.

Pool at Two Guns

Here is a behind the scenes grab of Ken and Chris doing their best to capture this photographic gem.  Great thing about the Fish is its 180 degree field of view… however, this is also a challenge when in a group all shooting in the same area.  You either have to go first before the rest of the vultures descend on the subject, or you have to wait around and go last.  It is a problem I can live with.

    Great colors from that graffiti! I really like the fisheye use and how it makes the world conform around the pool. Just awesome!

    I still see a bit of PG-13 rated nudity in there. 😉 Nice work though – I love graffiti!
