Monochrome Monday – Rainy Day – May 2, 2016


Spring seems to flirting with us.  We have a couple of days of lovely warm weather,  just right for short sleeves and sandals and then, the temps drop and snow falls on the mountains creating an icebox effect.    What a fickle maid is spring!  This is the courtyard as seen from the loggia at the front of my house.  I used FotoSketcher to create a soft oil pastels effect for my monochrome photo.

This is how the cropped monochrome photo looked before the treatment:


Ciao, Bastet

A Month of Haiga – February 5, 2016


Nature looks different at different times of day … in the late afternoon after the golden hour and nearing sunset,  the light dims rendering the world a world of shadows and forms, a moment I like to photograph so my theme today is:
