This blog depicts the beauty of photography from an amateures perspective. I believe it does not take a lot of schooling or license to become a good amateur photographer. A good but simple camera kept handy is an amateures best tool. An artistic eye can help but most of all it takes a person with a heart of wonder and a bent for adventure.
This is not a family album but a universal interest in the wonder of the lives we live and the world we live in.
A few weeks ago one of our regular photography contributors visited some of the areas that have just experienced a lot of flooding. This week We can share in a unique perspective from Funky-I-yam.
In the town of Lyons, Colorado (before the flood). From the past to the present with a little Focal Black and White and Color center to illustrate.
This picture was touched up with the 'posterizing' effect
Posterizing used here
(Double Rainbow vs. Colorful House)
"Competition with God!"
After the flooding this rainbow holds special meaning for those affected and the rest of us who have witnessed the devastation and who care about those who have lost so much!
