What Is This Place?

This site is a work in progress - much like life, actually. I am an amateur photographer who enjoys playing with my Canon EOS 10D. Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome, since I'm really just learning. Like what you see? Encouragement would be greatly appreciated!

Sunny Day, Sweeping the Clouds Away

Before anything else, I just have to thank everyone who offered support and good wishes for me when I was in my "funk" earlier this week. I am definitely doing better these days, so thank you.

The theme for this Thursday over at Stacy's place is "Sunshine." I had a lot of ideas for pictures I could share on that topic, but eventually, I chose one that actually features sunshine quite subtly. When I first saw this photo, I thought it was a failed shot - I thought the lighting was all wrong and I'd shadowed my subject. But after a little bit - and I do mean a little bit - of post-processing, I came to love the effect. Turns out the sun can do some pretty incredible things when you least expect it.


Head over to The Land of K.A. for more sunny shots!

    It really is a great shot. Sometimes the not-so-perfect shots can be the best surprises!

    Very nice, Lara. I love the backlighting that sun gives - they have a halo around their hair. :)
