SUNDAY POST: Goals

Something keeps calling me to Italian lakes over and over again, and it shall be one of my goals for this summer. Hopeful to discover more places like Orta San Giulio I am enclosing a photo I took two summers ago.

Thank you Jake for making us think of our goals or in my case dreams ;). I’ve just realised this is my 100th post 🙂 I hope it is milestone-worthy.

Weekly Photo Challenge: PURPLE

Being the combination of the warmest and coolest colours in the spectrum, purple is believed to be the ideal colour. The colour of balance, meditation, of spiritual fulfillment – between mind and heart …

Are the following purple enough for you? 😉

I give you a purple haze

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 ;).

Weekly Photo Challenge: BLUE

I might have got carried away here by posting several photos, all taken in the Alps that seems my favourite place to be… up in the air, closer to the skies one gets a different perspective on life. I don’t think these photos are something to be admired by photographic professionals, but they are my memories, and looking at them makes me smile.
