Thursday Doors: Corning, New York 5

This first picture is just of a couple of doors and many arched windows. If anybody knows how to remove that noise I get on pictures of brickwork and siding, I’d appreciate knowing how.

Here’s another green door for green door fans (at least, I think it’s green):

This one’s a utility door, with a certain spare beauty. It had a brickwork arch, but I was too close to get it:

I was too close to get the entirety of this door, as well, since I couldn’t run back and forth across the street every time I wanted to take a picture of a door. I mean, I COULD HAVE, but I didn’t want to:

This door led to the Frida Kahlo exhibit in the Rockwell Museum (yes, it was totally awesome):

A door to another awesome place, Thali of India, which wasn’t quite as good as the Shalimar in Louisville, but pretty damn near:

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Someone or something is running back and forth across the street.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I have done the back and forth across the street thing, Marian. It takes its toll and it can be dangerous with the post-covid drivers we have around here. I like the door to the Frida Kahlo exhibit best. The stairs and reflection do it for me. Did you try the restaurant?

      We did, indeed, try the restaurant. It was SO GOOD! Not as good as the Shalimar, but that’s a high bar.

    I like the green door best.

    The stuff you’re calling “noise” on your top image is called Moiré. It happens in camera when two grids overlap.
    Here’s a better definition.
    “Moiré pattern is a type of interference pattern caused by the overlap of two or more grids. It’s most often seen in images captured with digital cameras and is most commonly caused by the grid of pixels that make up the image sensor. The term moiré is derived from the French word “moire”, meaning a watered silk fabric with a wavy surface.”

    You can get rid of it by gaining or reducing the distance between the camera and the subject by moving yourself, or using the zoom feature of a lens. Or try changing the angle of view, or the focus point, or changing the aperture you’re using.
    If you can’t spot it in playback at the time you’re making the image you can correct it in post processing using Lightroom or Photoshop.
    Other image processing software may have a feature to remove it, but I can’t recommend one as I use Photoshop pretty much exclusively.

    Hope that helps a bit the next time you’re photographing a brick building or patterned something.

    A very nice collection of doors. I especially like the first one. The “noise” makes it more interesting. 🙂
