Second Chances (Before and After)

I haven’t been out to take pictures lately mostly because of all the rain we’ve been having not to mention the holidays.  I don’t mind though since California is in such a huge drought.  So speaking of water……

I went back through my images and thought I’d rework one of the older ones taken on my previous camera.  I think it’s fun to do something completely different with older images.  You never know what you might come up with!  The new one is the monochrome image which I converted to monochrome, flipped and did a tiny bit of distortion to the foam in the upper left-hand corner.  The before and after are included below.

This will be my last post until next week, so I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays and a Ho-Ho-Ho!!

Learn and Practice

This morning I saw on someone’s blog about using Lunapic.com for creating a free GIF, so thought I’d give it a whirl and came up with this.

Every time I learn something new, I try to apply it somewhere just so that, by a stroke of luck, I might remember it for the next time I might want to use it.  So after creating a couple of practice runs with other photos, I looked for a photo I thought might look cool with the reflecting water so I used what you see below.  I’ve also included it in my website for kicks under my About Me page.  Ain’t technology grand?  🙂

One thing that’s not so grand is my memory!!  My sincere apologies for not remembering who here in our WP community shared this site, but thanks for the heads up!  ADDENDUM!  Thank you to AMY for clueing me into the site for the animation!  Check out her blog!

Squiggles

This is the last photo I have from my Fort Baker photoshoot a few weeks ago.  There’s a little marina at Fort Baker so I walked around a little bit to see what I could get.  What a great place to have a boat!  Right at the foot of the Golden Gate.  Nice!!
