Good examples of everyday surroundings depicted as abstract art.

What did you use to add all the grain to the B&W shot #1?

I simply played with the Art Filters ... in the case the "Grainy Film". However, shrinking the shot to 1024x768 (in order to include it in my post) generated way more grain. The original can be seen at http://folob.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3ebpk5

The last one was taken using the Pop Art filter. I was trying to "boost" the colours.

I'm not going to follow the advice in #1. I'm happy to have a job.

In fact, it is some kind of "funny" ad campaign about ...

Tell your boss where to go...for employment standards information
Campaign targets young workers and construction sector

Edmonton... Alberta’s young workers and construction workers are encouraged over the next few weeks to tell their boss where to go -- for information on employment standards.

With a working population of more than 100,000, Alberta’s young workers top the country with the highest proportion of 15 to 19-year-olds in the workforce. Also, construction workers - ranging from young, unskilled and inexperienced, to mature, skilled and seasoned - can work long hours in tough working conditions throughout the year.



“It’s important for these young Albertans to gain valuable work experience and learn the value of a dollar, provided their focus on education is not diverted,” said Thomas Lukaszuk, Minister of Employment and Immigration. “And it’s important for the construction sector to continue to build our province, but not at the cost of being treated unfairly.”

A new employment standards campaign, Tell Your Boss Where to Go, is targeting young workers and construction workers through select Internet, radio and posters in locations frequented by these groups.
“My goal through this campaign is to encourage all workers, and these sectors in particular, to ask questions if they’re not sure of their employment standards rights and responsibilities on the job,” said Lukaszuk. “This isn’t about pointing fingers or laying blame on either the employers or the workers. It’s about ensuring Alberta’s workplaces are fair - we all deserve that.”

Thanks for the explanation. I figured an ad like that on public transportation had a deeper meaning than the obvious.

Same idea for me. I had to read the small print in order to understand the ad.

Thanks! As mentionned, the original had way less grain (for #1). As for #2, I used my Olympus 35 mm macro. It is a very nice lens for portrait, general photography and macro (not as nice as the 50 mm f2, but way cheaper!!!)
