Rain was forecast, rain was to be expected, rain it did. Who could be upset? In fact, I very much appreciated the time, because sifting through 140 images, not to find one single Image of the Day but to identify and process as many as possible, that’s quite a task. As already mentioned, I use Lab processing on all these images, because there’s really a need to drive the different shades of green apart. I am not really sure about the colors yet, I may get back and make final adjustments later, but that’s easy in Lab.

So far the session looks good to me. I have just counted, and even when I’m really conservative, I can come up with more than 35 usable images. Still, I’ll allow myself the luxury to go back next weekend. There will be different light, I may use different lenses or at least I may be in a different mood.

Seems like image making is not my problem. Stringing them together ain’t either, because as I have outlined in my kick-off post, the order is already given by the sequence of places along the path. What troubles me, is only that I have no idea so far of how to make a book 🙂

Today’s Image of the Day is not from the SoFoBoMo session, it’s genuinely from today. Employing the Sigma 70/2.8, I have ventured into the garden, well, more along the wall, just as far as the roof would still cover me, and this was the only flower in reach 🙂

The Song of the Day is “It Feels Like Rain” from Aaron Neville’s 1991 album “Warm Your Heart“.

  1. Nice, quiet shot from a rainy day. Fresh and greeny…

  2. When you don’t have time or resources for more than a minimum effort, a macro lens almost always saves the day. Glad you like it 🙂
