Color Aromatics

Today is the last day of Lucile’s Photo101Rehab clinic unless she decides to keep it open. For this photo I used a spare shot from the Photo101 Light assignment and applied a polarize filter to heat up the warm golden and deep blue colors.

And since I have a new fondness for black & white photography, I had to try it out with a mono filter. It seems more dramatic.

I can’t decide which I like better. Which presentation speaks to you?

2014 in review

I cannot believe that this year is winding down so fast. I just started blogging a few months ago and it has been more fun than I could have imagined. The blogging101, writing101 and photo101 courses were great. I learned a lot and more importantly met a lot of very interesting people.

I haven’t had the opportunity to travel the world, so it is amazing to me that I can interact with people from so many places and get a glimpse of the larger world, which actually makes the world seem smaller in a way!

I have enjoyed practicing different forms of writing. And, I have been surprised at how much I like taking photos! My interest continues to grow as I view great photos and tips from everyone! Taking pictures has become a source of joy!

Thanks to everyone who has given me a great compliment by following my blog, looking my posts and/or taking the time to leave a comment for me! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,900 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 48 trips to carry that many people.
