Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Re-Imagine Orange

Sandy has an exciting one for us this week! The Friendly Friday Photo Challengehas been splashing bright pops of color for the past two weeks and it has been a lot of fun. While I do not edit my photos other than some cropping and little exposure control (with the most basic features of the cell phone or the photo editor on Microsoft Windows), for this challenge I was indeed inspired and tempted to try some editing on Lightroom…thank you Sandy for the ideas! It was an interesting experience and I have sooooooooo much to learn! One step at a time.

This is an original photo, with no edits or filters…the sky was like this a few months ago, one fine evening. As they say… Nature needs no edits.

This is  picture post card, I had picked up way back in 2008 in Bangkok and it hangs on the side of the refrigerator along with another one that I really like. All of the post cards were black and white with the exception of this one where the bright orange is in perfect contrast and fits this week’s theme as well!

If one were to look around in drawers in my kitchen and boxes in the hall closet, one will find such caps of beer bottles and wine corks (with notes written on them sometimes) in plenty. They are part of our ‘memorabilia’- knickknacks from celebratory moments and days.

 

 

Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe.

A Photo A Day: 30 days or so

Amidst all that is going topsy turvy, my phone let me keep clicking everyday…almost.

 

 

 


Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you all health and peace during these trying times. Wish our world heals fast and we learn to be better. Kids should not have to be kept from playing with each other, old people should not have to spend their precious days away from one another, families should not have to share happy moments through glass windows.

Dylan has been on my mind.
