What a stressful day today was!!
Work felt like it lasted 4 million years and then I went to the grocery store afterwards and I'm pretty sure the rest of the city was there too. Let's just say some photography therapy was needed.
I took a drive to a place I've never been before and to be honest, I'm not even sure I was allowed to be there. I'm kicking myself now because I didn't see any "no trespassing" signs where I was (even though I know further up there would have been) and I missed out on a great photo opportunity. It was very industrial where I was and I did manage to snap a few good pics.
I feel bad because National Geographic says not to edit your photos but sometimes I just love the way you can boost the appeal of a photo with just a few little editing tricks. For example, the photos above were so "blah" before I added some contrast to them.
I'll be uploading some unedited photos from today on Sunday to the National Geographic website and hopefully some people will like my unedited photos better than I do. I guess I just have to learn to embrace the natural look of a photo or perhaps fiddle with my camera settings a bit harder to capture a prettier photo unedited.
Enjoy your Thursday! I don't know about you, but I cannot wait until the weekend!!
