Hello everyone! Did you all have a wonderful long weekend? I know it’s been too long. After an unscheduled hiatus, I am back. A lot have happened while I was away. Between another death in the family (the 3rd one in less than 2 years!) and a much welcomed visit from friends and family, this girl has been pretty busy. It felt good not to worry about my blog during that time though, I must admit, it was liberating.
I don’t know about your part of the world, but over here, it seems as if Fall is starting to poke its head. You can certainly feel the cooler morning breeze. On our way to the Thousand Islands on Sunday, I swear I saw some of the leaves have already turned red and yellow.
The image above is from my archive, taken during the peak of Fall last year. I figured, well, the coming of Autumn is inevitable so instead of fighting it, I might as well welcome it with open arms. I have a few photos from the Thousand Island trip, but those will have to wait till tomorrow, although if you’ve “liked” my Facebook page, you’ve probably have seen a few already.
I’ve realized something very important while I was away, that I am in love with the matte look on photos. If you noticed, the image above was processed that way. It took me a while to figure out how this was done. It was sort of an “aha!” moment when I finally found the correct way to do it, and I’ve re-processed some of my previous photos this way. If you check my portfolio site (opens on a new window), you’ll see what I mean. Expect most of the photos on this site to be done this way moving forward because I think I have finally found my personal stamp.
