Linking to A Personal Photo Challenge.
This month's photo challenge has been the most fun yet. I love words, and there were so many possible directions to take this challenge: Signs, books, a photographic alphabet -- all beckon to me. As you'll see momentarily, I have focused on signs -- words found and photographed in the wild -- but I may well do a little extracurricular shooting around this theme. My inner English teacher demands it.
I like the puny potential here. Can cracked souls be fixed like Birkenstocks?
A shortcut through China Town. I zoomed out from the neon Fantan Cafe sign for a little context and captured exactly the sort of scene that I'd been after for last month's challenge on street photography. Maybe I just had to get warmed up.
Finally, a little graffiti scratched onto the sea wall. Who is Kurtis? Was he here to kiss the girl who wrote this or was he obliviously living his own life somewhere else?
This picture benefited from my Picasa play. Here I increased the colour saturation a little and brought up the shadows in order to emphasize the depth of colour and texture in the cement wall.
I'm wondering, how much post-processing do you typically do on your photos? What program do you use? Do you tweak all, most or just a select handful of your photos?
Thanks again to Donna at A Personal Photo Challenge for another stimulating camera assignment.
