Photos on a Friday — 30 Comments

  1. Now that quote is what I need to hear. Yes it is. Now that I stopped posting (but continuing to visit my favorite blogs), I have lost so many “friends” in email. But, my decision was made because I needed time. And now I have it. The next step is to persevere in my goals and take that time to read more and write. A perfect message for a perfect day, Mary…and your choice to make that photo in black and white brings out the true beauty of this place. I guess I can liken my decision to stop blogging to this; I’ve made my “blogging” writing life black and white now….dark, colorless, but I hope just as STUNNING as I venture out into the unknown of writing.

    THANK YOU. You always get it so right for ME. (the dogs are sweet!!!) Anita

    • Anita, I am glad I was able to send out the right message, at the right time. I can see how quitting blogging would affect the virtual friends we make. Personally, I would miss it too much to quit. But I don’t have other writing goals such as yours. (I can’t wait to see your poetry)
      Someday, somewhere, you and I will meet. And it will be like old friends meeting again.

      • Hello sweet Mary…yes, your photo and technique did it for me today. Oh this life, it is SO full of wonderful metaphors and visual pleasures that rock my SOUL! Yes, someday, we will all meet. PEACE in the desert! Anita

  2. Gorgeous photos – I even like the pre-touched-up one because of how those mountains in the distance have a bluish hue (at least on my computer!). Great to see the pups again! :)

  4. I am impressed that you saw the potential in that gray sky shot. The skies are so often like that in Cascadia but I so rarely truly capture it. Maybe I’m just not looking with a perservering eye! ;)

  5. Wonderful transformation, Mary! The distant snow-capped mountains standing out against that formidable looking sky – beautiful in black and white.

  6. I love that sunset photo, so lovely. Nice to see the dogs enjoying AZ. This weather is nuts! Hope it doesn’t continue for Superbowl sunday. It’s putting a bit of a damper on all the pre-game festivities here. )-:

  7. Beautiful clouds. It is amazing how much better the sky on an overcast day looks in B&W. So glad to see that the girls are doing well!

  8. The girls definitely look content! The clouds in black and white are definitely very dramatic….great shot and editing.

  9. A wonderful images – and you did very well to transform the quite ordinary looking photo into something very special and dramatic. Between the black and white and the colour photos of clouds, my favourite is clearly the former.

  10. What an improvement, it really stands out as a b&w. Nice job, I really like it. And the dogs are super cute, especially the first one, just chilling…:D
