Here's another photo from last summer.

Saturday, January 25, 2014

We took a trip to the shores of Lake Superior last summer.  
Of course, I took many photos.  
This is one of them.

I like the variety of textures in this scene---water, flowers, and rock.

Here's a drive-by photo I took last summer.  
Its good therapy for winteritis.

Here's another version of the photo in the previous post.  I was trying out some viewfinder add-ons and kind of liked this one.

Here is another of the drive-by photos I took the other day.  
It was fun to add the Polaroid-look frame.

We had a Polaroid camera for awhile when I was a kid.  It was quite a novelty.  Too bad the film was so expensive.

Yesterday my husband sent me on an errand.  I managed to remember to take a camera along for some drive-by photos.  Out of the many shots I snapped only one or two were good enough to keep.  This one didn't look that great at first, but after some cropping and editing of exposure, color, texture,  I was happy with the results.   

I didn't cut off the tops of the trees, they were that way in the original photo.  Drive-by photos are often like that since if you're the driver you have to aim the camera without looking.  You get what you get and its a fun challenge to see what you can do with the often very imperfect photo scenes.

Wow, its been a long time since I've done a blogpost. 
Let's see if I can remember how to post a photo.
Yup, here's one:

This scene is a drive-by shot taken last fall.  I lightened it a little to bring out the highlights that were compliments of the late afternoon or early evening sun.  Why did I choose this photo?  No reason except for the fact that I like it.  I'm not even sure where it was taken.

I haven't been taking many photos lately.  Its that time of year when I don't feel like doing much except the necessary chores and then after that mostly watch TV. Recently, I decided to start keeping a handwritten journal to try and prod myself into a better state of mind.  Actually, I think it helps, though I still have the TV on.

Now I'll find out if I can remember how to change the color of the blog's background.  Yup, mission accomplished.
