3 day quote challenge (1st day)

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. ~Abraham Lincoln

The rules of this three-day quote challenge are to post a favourite quote every day for three days, and pass on the challenge to three other bloggers. You can do this at any time you like – even next year – and you can also say, “No thanks.”

While I’ve enjoyed being challenged by others, I find it difficult to invite one blogger over another, so if you would like to join in please accept this invitation to share your favorite quotes.  Thank you Amy at The World is a Book for extending an invitation.  It eases all those times in the playground when I was among the last to be chosen to be on a team.  _()_

One Photo Focus…July


Bren Ryan’s (Ryan Photography) photo…an  edited image submitted in response to Visual Venturing July’s  One Photo Focus.

I began adjusting the exposure and white balance in Bren’s raw image  before going into Nix’s Viveca 2…wanted to explore what, if any thing, was hidden in this image’s shadows. I then played around in ON 1 Photo Effects before going to Nix’s Analog Efex 2…I have become enchanted by Nix’s wet plate and broken choices.

Enchanted is a good word as this image speaks of an enchantment…of a travel back in time…to a childhood storybook narrative.

weekly photo challenge: angular

This week Xiao Yu offers a photo challenge at The Daily Post: “Not to put too fine a point on it, though this week, we challenge you to show us what “angular” means to you… It might mean the corner on which you live or the intersection of sea and sky at 180 degree angle. Angular also offers a chance to shoot from an entirely new perspective: from above, below, or even from the margins of the fray…”weeklyphotochallengeangle
