While visiting my son, we took a day trip to Detroit. It was a very hot Sunday and downtown Detroit was deserted…perfect for pictures. I wish I could have been there very early in the morning. The light would have been less harsh. However, I did get to take many pictures of seagulls. They are great models, for the most part, standing still when I was fumbling with camera settings.
Finally managed to get outside for a bit and take some pictures. I don’t know about where you are, but Fall here, has been outstanding. Warmish days with cool nights, perfect weather. These pictures were taken around Eminence, Missouri, a beautiful, if isolated, place. There are lots of photo opportunities there ( springs, falls, and rolling hills) if you are in the area.
I saw in the Rocky Mountain School of Photography (RMSP) newsletter, that they are now open for registration for their 2012 courses. I attended a Photo Weekend last year and it was very informative, plus I thought the cost was about right, $189 for the two days of classes.
Well, probably not a picture a day, but I am planning on posting a picture a week. Today’s pictures are several variations on a sunflower. I like all three versions, although it irritates me that the Picnik version seems to be the most popular with friends and family. One little click, no artistic flair or carefully added effects on my part, and bam! Instant art. It seems much too easy to be considered good. I like the idea that I have slaved over the editing process for hours, days even, before coming up with a great image. Or, I can jump on Picnik, and click, click, there it is.
