Yesterday, I joined in with many bloggers in a blogger day of silence out of respect for the families and friends of Newtown, CT.
That said, I am always creating, always looking for great photos and opportunities for wonderful shots.
I included two days’ worth of photos here to make up for the day I didn’t post. It’s a 31-day project, even if Christmas is next Tuesday (gasp – already!?)
Here is Day 18:
I love how this ornament seems to glitter. I did a little bit of post-processing on this photo – I blurred the image of my friend and I because I don’t want the focus to be on the people, but rather the shine and lights. Then I added a “monochrome colorize” effect.
I am seriously loving the monochromatic pictures – I might have to do a photo project next month that focuses on monochromatic photos. Hmm.
Here’s day 19:
I know I just said I’m l digging the monochrome colors, but I love this photo, too. The colors all complement each other, the bokeh turned out great and the glass isn’t blurry in its front-most spot, adding interest.
What do you think?
