I live in Tulsa, and I love to wander through downtown and take pictures of the murals that have been painted on many of the buildings. There are so many different genres and subjects it’s kind of boggling. One of my favorites is the one on the side of the old Legends Saloon in the parking lot at 3rd and Greenwood. It’s definitely the Bob Wills side of Tulsa’s history. I took a pretty decent bunch of shots one evening:
You can see it’s a long, low wall. No way to get a good single picture of it. I was lucky and the parking lot was empty – but it was late evening so the whole wall was in the shadows. You might also notice that there are light posts covering up some of the mural, and not all the photos are from exactly the same angle.
My goal? I want the whole wall image in one photo without anything blocking any of the artwork. Photoshop is a wonderful tool. After cussing and discussing it for a while here’s what happened:
I cropped it a bit too. What do you think? It’s a bit long for a single print, so I broke it into three pieces for general consumption. If you like it you can have your own downtown Tulsa mural triptych!
