    Westward Ho!


    While I was traveling in Phoenix this weekend I took a picture of the distinctive Westward Ho of modern day and then digitally superimposed a 1930s image from a site featuring vintage images of the city.


    Yes, the instructions for this assignment do permit digital superimpositions, so that is the technique I used here. Otherwise, I do not know if I would have been able to do this. This was fun to experiment with, and I plan to try this for real with an image in my hand in my midtown Atlanta neighborhood, which contains many local city landmarks.


    The Westward Ho used to be a fancy hotel and now is a housing facility for senior citizens. It looks virtually the same now but is lighter in color, and the sign is red instead of white. If you are curious, here is a link to a picture I took in 2007.  I will have an updated photo posted soon.
