Daily dose of three


At the Pima Air Museum in Tucson, Arizona, they have some buildings with stylized numbers on them. The structures are painted a rather monochromatic grey, but the numbers, the graphics, are very bold. So in my quest to post a picture of the number “3” every day, I came across this one.





The bottom photo is what I saw. The top photo is what I made.

As you can see, the sky that day was grey (echoing the overall look of the building), so I made it blue. And then I used a picture I took of a torn piece of paper, combined it with the building, enhanced the color a bit, and came up with this. I like the complementary colors of blue and orange; I also like all the straight, severe lines and the contrasting curves of the number “3.”

If you ever have the pleasure of visiting the Pima Air Museum, take a look at the buildings that are off to your left as you go outside. Very cool numbers to be had there!
