There Might be Dragons
I was photographing abandoned farms with Abandoned America and fell in love with this silo. When I originally photographed it I was thinking of incorporating a vintage image into the door opening at the top. This particular vintage image is from e-vint.com and he is actually part of a group of three men. I picked him because he was young and dashing in his uniform, exactly someone who could fight off a dragon. The dragons popped into my head while putting it together. I was going to originally name this post “Secret Weapon” but “There Might be Dragons” had more of a ring to it for me. The dragons are a vintage illustration from Graphics Fairy . The airplane is from WikiCommons.
The Silo was photographed in daylight and I brought clouds in from Photomorphis and then darkened using a color fill and hue and saturation layers. The clouds and stars are from a Photoshop brush. I wanted the image to be whimsical and fun.
