SUNDAY POST: Hope

A few years ago I got ill, and was scared and in despair. However, things got better; I had friends that helped me find the strength within me to fight and hope. One of them was my good luck charm that I parted with a year later by giving it to another person as I foolishly thought I would never need it again. These days I have retrieved my good luck charm, my lost sheep, and once again felt the support of my friends through another rough patch.

I know that our belief in the good luck charm is what makes it a good luck charm, but still I am happy to have my lost sheep back with me, and to be reminded never to stop hoping.

I would like to thank Jake for this theme… He must have been reading my mind when he came up with it 🙂

Hope for the Hopeless

I am not into photo post-processing, enhancing or doing miracles with photos in Photoshop – for the moment I am only trying to mend a bit what went wrong in the photo writing process – that is what raw shots are for, right? One of the reasons is because I still don’t know what I am doing when I open Lightroom or Aftershot (Bibble). I am not here to talk technical stuff about editing photos – there are far more qualified individuals to talk about it than me, nor am I a creator of a photolog, trying to place their work to others or will ever be (not that there is anything wrong with that). I am just using images as I see them and feel them in order to express what I think/mean.

If my perception is blue (bluish – not meaning that I am blue) then so be it. This photo means hope to me, even if I am hopeless at editing it :D.

This is not a self-pity talking, nor am I fishing for extorted compliments…. I just wanted (had to) share what I thought. Later on I will make you look at moderate editing of similar shots of the same beautiful lake… just bear with me if you will ;).
