Seven Days Seven B&W Photos Challenge – Day 7

 


This post was written in response to the Seven Days Seven B&W Photos Challenge, to which I was challenged by GANSU of https://sugunag.com/.
The challenge is to post seven black and white photos, no people, no explanation, of everyday life for seven consecutive days.

I’m also supposed to challenge one new blogger each day, but I must admit that may be hardest part, as I must confess I never feel comfortable challenging people, but I’ll try…

Photo: I see faces, July 2016

This is my first entry for the I See Faces challenge promoted by Rosenruthie. The challenge was referred to me after my recent post for WPC: Details and Cee’s Odd Ball earlier this week.

But then I decided that the hearing about I See Faces was enough reason to search for new faces elsewhere, so I’m showing here a face that my daughters and I always see on their stepping stool.

;o)

Photo: WPC Challenge – Cherry on top

Seeing Mt. Rainier always makes me smile.

Seeing it from above hanging out with his pals Hood, Jefferson and the Sisters is unbelievably cool.

Mounts

My last Spring break trip with the family was all good, nice and relaxing, but the coolest part was being able to take pictures of big landmarks from above.

I picture the mounts here, but I was also able to identify the Salt Lakes and Canyonlands, both in Utah, until the clouds came and ended my fun.

Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 8 – Charity Christmas Tree Topper Challenge

This past weekend my daughters and I put the Christmas tree up and lighted!

Here’s out three topper.

I bought this one several years ago (before the kids were even born) and it’s still resisting…

I like it because it lights up and also because of the colors that come out from the light reflecting on the translucent plastic.

One-Four Challenge: September Week 4

This is the last week for the September One-four challenge.

The images I’ll be using this month were actually created back in July, when I learned about the challenge and went crazy about creating 2 sets of images, the one I used then, and the one I’ll be using this month.

Having been so long since the editing of the pictures, I need also admit I don’t remember how exactly I edited them, except of course by the obvious. I’ll try to remember at least those obvious. All edits were made on my Android phone, using the Photo Editor app.

So here’s this week’s version:

rosesedited4

In this one I decided to use the weird effects of the app. So I use a invert color to get my magenta roses to become blue, and also a mirroring (both vertical and horizontal) effect for the caleidoscope look and feel.

So bellow you’ll fint a compilation of all 4 versions as well as the original, and a poll. Please vote on your favorite one.

One-Four Challenge: September Week 3

This is the third week for the September One-four challenge.

The images I’ll be using this month were actually created back in July, when I learned about the challenge and went crazy about creating 2 sets of images, the one I used then, and the one I’ll be using this month.

Having been so long since the editing of the pictures, I need also admit I don’t remember how exactly I edited them, except of course by the obvious. I’ll try to remember at least those obvious. All edits were made on my Android phone, using the Photo Editor app.

So here’s this week’s version:

This is the closest to the original picture. On this one, if I remember well, I increased saturation, added some little blur and changed the perspective, so the fence that seemed to be leaning a tiny bit to the right, changes to lean a bit to the left.

Hope you’ll like it.

One-Four Challenge: September Week 2

This is the second week for the September One-four challenge.

As I mentioned last week, the images I’ll be using this month were actually created back in July, when I learned about the challenge and went crazy about creating 2 sets of images, the one I used then, and the one I’ll be using this month.

Having been so long since the editing of the pictures, I need also admit I don’t remember how exactly I edited them, except of course by the obvious. I’ll try to remember at least those obvious. All edits were made on my Android phone, using the Photo Editor app.

So here’s this week’s version:

rosesedited2

In picture was build on top of the previous one, keeping the vignette, which i learned some people do not like much. ;o). In this one, it doesn’t make the picture too dark, but on the other hand we can clearly see the curve, which I guess make it a little forced.
For the colors, in this one I made it monochrome, then changed the hue to a red-ish sepia-like effect.

Hope you’ll like it.
