I came across some pics I took this spring in black and white. I thought the depth of the tone made them wonderfully artistic. When you think of Spring, you think "color", lots of beautiful color. However, looking through these images made me "feel" the crisp fresh air of a cool Spring day. Sometimes it's good to see beyond the "color"....
Every once in a while, I look back on some of my old sd cards and revisit some of the images I have saved. It's funny how you can go over and over sd cards and always find something new. I don't know why I've never published this image, I obviously thought the tree was amazing! I was probably taking a lot of pictures of trees at the time and just somehow ignored this one?
This image is from 2011, taken at Fontainebleau State Park, St Tammany Parish. I edited in dhdr sepia orton effect. I love the highlights of the moss, the tree seems to be reaching out to speak to you, and sepia is a perfect tone for Oak, it gives it that "antique" feel as Oaks often imply. I think I may be looking over some more sd cards while categorizing and filing them in some sort of system I can deal with. Right now they are in a ziploc bag! YIKES!! Anyways.....Check out this beautiful State Park if you are ever near Mandeville, Louisiana, just before you cross the Causeway going South to New Orleans. Great nature photography hike. :)
Another weekend with too many hours spent at the laundromat. This is the beautiful pear tree in front, I always manage to park under. I love the branches flowing forward as you look up out of the window of the truck, just starting to blossom the first signs of Spring!
I must and will get me a bike so I will be able to do the laundry everyday and keep my weekends for adventures! LOL! Hoping to better my health and expand on my hobbies.
