Chromatic Highway Through Pastel Guitars

Brightly colored guitars caught my attention at the Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival. I photographed them, taking advantage of pattern repetition and the contrast of curved and vertical lines. After some experimentation with the scanned image, I got a result that moves the original scene to a surreal dimension of lines, perspective, and color. This image received the top award in photography at the 2008 Autumn Arts Show, and a First Place award at the 2009 Santa Barbara Fair.
