BenchPop

January 9

At the southward edge of downtown Edmonton, where the skyscrapers meet the grassy slope that drops into the river valley below, a kind of gallery of concrete framed with gnarled old trees holds court over the various bridges crossing the mighty North Saskatchewan River. A path pocked with scarred benches is usually haunted by the city’s displaced, except when the weather turns unbearably cold and a guy with a camera can hold his hands steady for a few chilly minutes to snap a collection of photos of that scene. This particular snap benefits from a post-processing through a desaturation-slash-selective colouring effort called ColorPop which is a fun filter with the right colour to pop.
