Picture Of The Week – Planet Topeka

A little over a year ago I had the opportunity to climb to the top of one of the downtown office buildings in Topeka, Kansas. I went up there with #7 and we walked all over the roof in the hot sun taking photos of the city.

I tried to stitch a few of those together to create a wide panoramic image; it could have gone better. I’ll need to try that again someday.

Not long after that I tried a little Photoshop fun called “Small Planets”. I took an old shot of a wheat field and created Planet Kansas; it kind of needed a little something but was fun to do.

For some reason today I felt like playing with that small planet idea again. Maybe it was because I’m a bit too sun burned to do much of anything other than sit in front of the fan and whine a little. 😀

I pulled up one of the old shots taken from the roof top last spring, opened up Photoshop CS2 and had some fun.

Here’s what downtown Topeka might look like from space if it were its own small planet.
