Day 26 Theme #305 The Letter D

26 01 2011

THE LETTER D is for Devil Dog Dungarees. I was driving in Zebulon, NC on the way to the Gethsamene Memorial Gardens (more on that tomorrow) and saw this factory. It has been a long time since we called jeans “dungarees”! The factory is still in business even in this economy.

I did a Google search for Devil Dog Dungarees and was surprised to find some other versions of this sign on flickr. Check it out.

I used Lightroom to make the photo blue and used the Holga Base preset to soften the image more.

What a great find and your processing suits it very well. (I use that Holga Base preset a lot too!) The word “dungaree” has an interesting etymology, having come from Hindi. I wonder how it came to be used in the US?

What a great old sign. Nice job on making it look even older.

the blue monotone works so well for this, given both the reference to blue jeans and the old-fashioned quality of the sign.

A great sign! And the processing is very retro, too.

Looks like it was taken through a moving car’s tinted windscreen!

The processing ages this a bit, and I really love the blue tints!

Great processing – the blue really fits the theme!
