Project 365 : Night at the Drive-In

After a couple of days off The Project, it was time to get a little creative. I’ve been disassembling more electronics, and one of my latest conquests has been an XM Radio. The big screen on the thing intrigued me, and I thought it would be cool to transform it into the big screen of a drive-in theatre. I found a bunch of small toy cars, and arranged them as though they were viewing the picture. But what to put on the screen? I had no way to drive it electrically, so I decided to “scribble” on it with a laser pointer. I’ve got no idea what those little guys are watching on the screen, but it sure seems like gibberish!

I made this image with my Canon 7D and Canon 24-105/4L lens. I worked the image Photoshop CS4E, using Nik Viveza and Nik Color Efex Pro’s Color Process filter.
