Category Archives: Snapshots from a Happy Life

Suddenly, I awoke

Almost moonset.

If I were a magic being I would follow the moon trail. I wonder where it would take me?

The two images are the same photo processed in slightly different ways. I couldn’t decide which one to use…Which do you think is better?

Postcards from a different time

A time when we could be out and about.

I tried out some of the suggestions in Sandy’s post. This is using the media plus text block.

King Penguins

Volunteer Point

Falkland Islands

These are from messing about in Canva:

Happy memories to all.

For the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Postcards from the Past.

Light and dark

Some photos from the past couple of weeks that have a strong contrast between light and dark.

While the contrast between light and dark is fundamental to black and white, I also find myself drawn to contrast in sharpness of detail and texture. You can see that in several of the photos above.

This week Hey Jude for Photo Challenge #46 asked for black and white focusing on contrast.

Fall glory

The past few days have been glorious. The lower angle of the sun makes the fall foliage glow. The blue skies compliment the golden to red palette of fall leaves. We took a long walk today, it is already clouding up and the next few days will be rainy, if the forecasts are correct.

I also want to share this great quote that I found yesterday:

For Sunday Stills: a celebration of leaves.

If you haven’t already:

Natural textures-in black and white

Every so often I take a picture because the pattern of the light catches my attention. While these are not exactly regular patterns they do have regularity to them.
