Signs of the Times: My Photoshop Contest
Oh, the joy that is Photoshop, the nifty little program that allows us to alter reality in fun and interesting ways.
Last month, inspired by a bit of graffiti I see every day that says "CAPITALISM IS THE PROBLEM," I invited readers to Photoshop some part of the Washington area for my entertainment. Specifically, I wanted them to mess with a sign of some sort. Today I present the results.
Danny Phillips made my dreams reality with a nifty image I could see being part of the background in a zombie movie:
Danny also did this one, combining two of my odd predilections:
Andy did a nice job with this image:
Jimmy Day made my day with this entry:
Ron Evry stirred up some great memories with this handsome image:
(Notice the timewarped "Tavern"?)
Look closely at the sign on this entry from Brian Reitz:
What was formerly inconvenient is now really inconvenient:
Finally, here is my winner. It's of a sign outside the Wilson Building, put up by the District government to protest the city's lack of Congressional representation. It usually ticks off the amount of tax money D.C. residents pay. But what ticked off the winner was the lack of an apostrophe. It should read "DC Residents' Federal Tax Dollars Paid."
My winner prefers to remain anonymous, since he (or she) works for the District government and thinks her (or his) bosses might not appreciate his (or her) sense of humor. I'll be treating her (or him) to lunch.
Thanks to all the people who sent in entries. You are a clever and talented bunch. I have another request in mind that will be perfect for springtime wandering, digital camera in hand. Stay tuned.
