Welcome to this week's Photo Art Friday!
First, let me thank all of you who participated in last week's edition.
All of your submissions were a joy to behold!
This week we have three suggestions to choose from for our submissions:
1. Any piece of photo art you choose.
2. A piece of photo art which you created using a layer mask.
3. A piece of photo art that is not pretty.
I have selected #3.
These three photographs were taken while DH and I were searching for parking in "The Plateau" area of Montreal one Friday evening. We were meeting my daughter and her husband at a restuarant (among the thousands in Montreal) that comes highly recommended called, "L'un des sens". I had a little Canon point and shoot with me. (The images in this post were processed in PSE 8 and RadLab.)
As we sat at a red light my eyes settled upon a lone figure sitting by an open window. In spite of the hustle and bustle at street level, I was captivated by this man in the window. He seemed to be sitting at a table eating. Was he was trying to make the best of his situation, choosing to dine 'al fresco' with the window wide open to catch the rays? As we tend to do, I constructed (completely fantasized) a story to go with what I saw.
Though concerned it was somewhat invasive taking his photo without his permission ... I persisted past any qualms and took the shot anyway. To ask his permission would ruin the moment and it wasn't really possible.

For next week's Photo Art Friday let's continue with having a choice of what to do, one of which will hopefully fit your inclinations and circumstances.
1. Link up any piece of photo ART you choose
2. Submit a piece of photo-art that is abstract
Here are couple of textures that might prove useful for next week (and beyond):
As always, our virtual gallery opens its doors early - Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. EST.
