Week 48: HDR

I like the effect of HDR (High Dynamic Range) on street scenes, where details may be lost. This scene is from Montmartre, the bohemian area of Paris where people watchers enjoy the view from sidewalk cafes and artists create portraits and Parisian scenes on their canvases.

Week 47: The Blue Hour

I was lucky to have a scenic view out my hotel balcony last week in Valletta, Malta, and early each day I saw it in the “blue hour,” that time of day, before the sun rises or after it sets, that casts a blue hue.

Week 45: Textures

My Florida-friendly front yard serves as my Textures offering this week. The landscaping offers layers of textures of low-maintenance plants and environmentally sustainable practices. Florida-friendly plants don’t require a lot of watering and no mowing, just occasional¬† pruning. While Florida gets copious amounts of rain through the summer, our winters are dry, and non-Florida-friendly flora require regular waterings.
