I have been lax, I’m afraid. It’s been stupid busy around here and when it’s not busy I’m in stupid brain-numbing pain. It makes it difficult to write.
So here I am with the photoblog I wanted to post a week ago this past Sunday. Tomorrow we will be checking out the start of my Pink! story. Maybe you all can help me find a title, eh? I’m kind of lost there.
Remember the snowball tree? We were playing with it, making it snow. I was taking pictures while Peter made it snow. These ended up being my two favourites, although Peter took the second. I took it with the sports setting on my camera and it caught the fall of petals perfectly.
The second one is something that delighted Peter to see. I was sitting under the tree as he shook it and we were having fun. I was happy. In a good place. He took it with the same setting. I put it in grayscale and cropped it to the place I liked (I wasn’t wearing a bra and I was in comfy clothes! lol) .
We went to the beach at sunset and I took pictures. Of course. 😉 I have two. One pretty one and one I screwed with. *laughs* I don’t remember doing much to the first one beyond auto-contrast. I’d been playing with the ISO and white balance settings and liking the way things were coming out.
Then, of course, I had to play with another one of the sunset pictures. I did this and undid it then I did that and undid it and finally, I did this. I played with the hue and saturation. East and west along the scale and settled on this:
I do have one other sunset picture but I’m saving it for the end.
I went out early Saturday morning and snapped a few pics of the tightly furled future beauty. I like the pictures. I think that they are almost as beautiful as the blooms themselves. I changed the contrast a little in the rosebud. The peony was almost perfect the way it is. And, of course, I have to play with photoshop so I did. I turned the splatter filter on the rosebud. 😀
And finally, my favourite picture of the week.
It’s a sunset but not like the other two. Same night. Different perspective. I saw the shot in my head and took it with a little prayer that it would come out the way I wanted it to. And when I opened it into Photoshop to see what needed to be done it was absolutely perfect.
Enjoy! I’m out. Muah
