A View From Western Maryland

Chamber Tulips


I had to go downtown this morning on a service call, and on the way back, about mid-morning, I was walking past the Allegany Chamber of Commerce and this is what I saw. I thought that the scene, with the brightly colored Tulips in front of the Chamber, would make a good photograph, so I did.

This photo was taken with a P&S 5MP camera. The ISO was 50 and the exposure was 1/100 sec @f/8. In Photoshop Elements I cropped the photo and adjusted levels for proper color. I resized for web viewing and added just a touch of sharpening.

My world may have a great deal of history but there is also color and beauty in downtown Cumberland, and this is but one example of the beauty that awaits your visit.

Yeah, this is my colorful world and you are welcome to it.
