Creative Photography: Creative, Stupid or a Little of Each
I haven't entered Creative Photography for a while and it seems like the system has changed a bit so I hope I'm doing the right thing here...
I don't know how creative this picture is. Last week I got the bright idea on a particularly shiny Fall day to take pictures of the sun. Lucky for me (I'm told by wiser heads) I didn't ruin my camera... probably because all my pictures are taken through glass and in this case double-paned glass with some kind of thermal gas in the middle. Anyway, I took a bunch of pictures just because it seemed like fun. This is my favorite. I'll share a couple of the others below too. I know, one man/woman's hideous mis-fire is another's "that's kind of cool."
You can see here how dirty my windows are. Sigh. I'll have to see if my friends will clean them off for me again.
And then, just because I love to play with paint shop, it occurred to me that it would be amusing to try "solarizing" the sun. That's the bottom left. Top right is "colored foil," and bottom right is "enameled." Top left is the original. If you click on it you can enlarge this silliness and see it bigger. Some days I'm just crazier than others. Thanks for visiting. I'll slink off now and hope I haven't embarrassed myself too much.
