Well this is fiddlesticks… It has been a few weeks since I have posted anything. Hell, It has been a few weeks since I have felt artistic and creative, or felt the desire to research and learn something new. My postal job is really trying to see if I will go postal and although they have not succeeded, they are getting close.

But I have managed some time off and took a “field trip” of sorts with my favoritest sound maker, synth player, music creator husband.. ( You can check him out here or here)    and was able to get some images. Finding time to edit the RAW, well that is a different story.

Here are a few of the images I have been fiddling with. (with a pen and tab… not fiddle sticks)–

Our first field trip was May 10th. I had really wanted to see the gardens at Shore Acres State park. I knew roses were starting to bloom and being a weekday would not be full of young punks ruining my old person time.  I was able to get some images, but after coming home.. realized that ugg I should have brought the tripod. It would have been so awesome to have because I have some serious hand shake at times.  These images sat on my hard drive begging to be edited… but here it is 2 and a half weeks later and I am just getting to them.

Here is the fiddle stick part… my brain is not in it… I looked at the images and… nothing….      No artistic inspiration- no emotional response from myself (how I judge my own photos) — there was nothing… I sat there removing the green from the images….

I know selective coloring is passe – a thing of the past- so outdated and such an amateur move. I have heard it all from other photographers. They can judge all they want… I create images for myself. If others like them it is a boost of confidence, but honestly I am looking for my own emotional response. I want my images to speak to me.

So after removing the green, I actually felt like the flowers had more “power”. They were brighter and happier being the center of attention. Yes, I felt the flowers emotions. They are stuck up flowers and want to be seen all the time.
