Weekly Photo Projects, Week 39
For +Project 52 B&W our theme was Flow. I was thinking of shooting something water related, even if it isn't that outside of the box in terms of thinking. So when I was shooting this through my viewfinder I was primarily keeping an eye on the water. I wasn't sure how the shot would turn out once I got it on the computer, but once I saw it on the monitor I really liked it. I got the flowing water, but the brickwork also seems to flow.
Blue on Blue
Our theme for +Weekly Photo Project 2013 was Negative Space. I liked the blue on blue aspect of this shot and the detail inherent on a Victorian house. This was an HDR processed shot to hopefully make the house detail pop a little more. I think it worked out.

It should be no surprise that I took some bracket shots of the waterfalls from the other day. I'm not so happy with the HDR shots as I was with the normal shots, which for me is a little strange, but I think the blame goes on me, I rushed the shots. Note to self, and other photographers, don't go to a shoot with someone who's not a photographer, you'll end up feeling rushed even if they're in the car chatting happily on the phone oblivious to your shooting.
Monday, as just about everyone knows, Apple gave a peek at a couple of its updates in the operating systems arena, both mobile and desktop. Most people knew what to expect in the first half, OS X Lion is coming in July. And although I knew what most of the updated stuff was going to be I still found myself wanting to update right then and there. I mean why wouldn't you? It's $30, and I don't have to run down to a store to get it. Actually, I couldn't if I wanted to, but that's another story. But it's the second half of the presentation that was more, interesting, if you're an iOS person.
