Small Stream

Image of flowing water

I took this image while I was camping near Lost River in New Hampshire.  My son and I took our pop-up tent and spent a week relaxing.  Forgot to mention, we also had his dog, my daughter’s dog and my dog  camping with us.  I had a wonderful time.  Would love to do it again!

This image is from 2007 when I was doing more photography than I am right now.  I was sitting in a Burger KIng parking lot and  a lot of  birds  were eating scraps.  There were pigeons, sea gulls, and some other birds that I did not recognize.   This is one of my favorite images from that day.  I made some adjustments in Photoshop.

Rethinking Everywhere

Rethinking Everywhere

Here’s a question I’m struggling with lately: Is everywhere really worthy of our tourism?

That question preoccupied me this weekend after reading about Marte Deborah Dalelv’s ordeal in Dubai. The short account of her tragedy is that the Norwegian expat was sentenced to sixteen months in prison for the crime of being raped. Officially Ms. Dalelv was charged with “having sexual relations outside of marriage.” That she never consented to those sexual relations is of small consequence.

I was browsing the web for Photoshop tutorials and I came across this image treatment. The tutorial is on youtube and it is done by logongod I really liked it and decided I wanted to try it. The image that the tutorial used was a portrait so I dug into my files and found this one of my daughter and her son. I might like to try something like this on a photo of something other than a portrait and see what can be accomplished.

I used the process that was in the tutorial and added a couple of my ideas.  I added a gradient to the background.  The gradient was the same color used in the text of the image. I distorted and blurred the background and gave a torn border to the image.  The used words that I associate with my daughter and grandson.  I hope you enjoy!
