A few nights ago, I went out to explore the local Christmas decorations. As I drove through neighborhoods, I loved seeing people getting into the spirit with their decorations, but somehow my car seemed on auto-pilot and ended up at a business park several miles away. I used to work at this business park years ago and I have fond memories of those years. What better spot to take photos 30 years later!
Thank you to my new blog friends who’ve helped me to grow in my photography skills. I’d like to give a special thank you to Leanne Cole. You’ve been so supportive and helpful, and I am totally inspired by you! Her photography can be found here: http://leannecolephotography.com/
Before I set out on my nighttime Christmas light escapade where I will be attempting to capture the season’s outdoor decorations, I looked into the recesses of my computer’s hard drive for an unprocessed picture.
The photo I decided to work with was taken on my iPhone from Ocean Beach in San Francisco. It’s rare you see vehicles on the beach unless they are law enforcement vehicles, so I thought it was an interesting juxtaposition.
I posted the “after” picture first and then the way it originally looked directly below.
