Weekly Photo Projects, Week 17
Night Lights. Literally
I thought this was going to be the week that I stumbled and didn't turn something in for at least one of the projects, but I was able to get photos in for both of them. Just not in a photographic state of mind. So for +Project 52 B&W our theme was night lights. Had I been on my game earlier in the week I would have lined something up with the moon through a window in my house illuminating the hall. By the time I got my act together fog and clouds obscured the moon and I was left with this night light. And a mirror.
Where the magic doesn't happen
For +Weekly Photo Project 2013 our theme was favorite room. This is not always my favorite room, but it is in the morning. Just me, my cereal, and something to read. This shot is an HDR shot and also my first interior/room HDR shot. I realized that one processes these shots differently than outdoor shots.
If you find yourself in the Eastern Sierra, I highly highly recommend taking a few hours and stopping by the Manzanar National Historic Site. It's tells the story of out not too distant past that we like to conveniently skip over. If you're not familiar with the significance of this site, this is where, shortly after the bombing of Hawaii by Japan in 1941, some 10,000 Japanese, most with US citizenship, were incarcerated. This site is one of ten sites around the country that would come to hold over 110,000 people, again most of which were US citizens, from 1942-1945.
I realize it's been awhile since posting, but here goes. I have a backlog of photos taken with some new gear (more on that in another post. Hopefully) so I'm going to post some that have only seen minimal processing within the Google Photos service? App? All in all I'm really impressed with how much Google Photos has progressed over the years. Until I get Lightroom setup on a new computer, Google, and a handful of other apps, will have to handle the workload.
*Tap tap tap* Is this thing on? Is this thing even working? Do I even know how to do this anymore? Do I even want to do this? All good questions, with some (hopefully) being answer with this post. Meaning if you can see it, it's on and working. The other questions? Well, who knows at this point. But, if you're seeing this, congrats! You probably had the RSS feed (which may or may not still be working), or some other little service I was using over a year ago is still shooting this out to social media. What brought me back? Am I back?
What brought me back is easy. A couple days ago +Blogger released a, well, blog, detailing some new themes: https://blogger.googleblog.com/2017/03/share-your-unique-style-with-new.html. I didn't hate them, and in fact liked one (the one hopefully you see here) and I went poking around, and re-kicking the tires to see if anything else about Blogger had changed. On first glance, nothing else has changed, which is both good and bad.
Am I back?…
