THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: SATURATION

I am sorry I can’t always keep this photo challenge a weekly event due to my ever increasing workload and stresses at work, but whenever I can I am happy to be here to challenge you and look at your entries. For this week I thought it would be a good idea to tackle “saturation”. It can be interpreted as colour saturation in photography – especially evident in the image post-processing, which is what I did in my examples below, but you can also take it from another angle. Did you know that you can be saturated with work too?

**About Thursday’s Special: It is a ‘non-challenge’ challenge that appeals to bloggers eager to wake up their creativity and show their own ideas and interpretation of the world. I invite everybody interested to join in. There are no themes, titles and techniques set for your expression, there are no limits and restrictions (no red tape whatsoever). The only thing required is to post a photo post on Thursdays entitled “Thursday’s Special: (your theme/title)” (as explained in my Thursday’s Special introductory post), to provide a link to my Thursday’s Special post, and to leave a link to your post in the comments section of my post. If you like Thursday’s Special widget, feel free to grab it and post it on your blog.

CBBH Photo Challenge: Looking Up (11th edition)

There is a lady blogger on WP that did something not that unusual for the English; she packed her bags and moved to Spain to catch some sun and teach English. While there she learned the Spanish ways, but never left her English customs behind ;). She still shouts “white rabbits” for good luck on the first day of each month, only now she calls them “conejos blancos”. Conejo Blanco Blog Hop is the name of the new photo challenge that Marianne (the lady in question) came up with. This time it is a monthly photo challenge, and therefore the one I am most likely to carry through. Here is a link to her blog for anyone interested to find out more.

The first  CBBH theme is: LOOKING UP…You can look up to find someone or something, you can admire someone, you can raise your eyes, tilt your head and get lost in your thoughts (while looking up), you can learn how to look UP and NOT DOWN … You can look up at the sky, see a falling meteor, and make a wish upon it, and things just may start to look up for you 🙂

Don’t forget to look up! You never know what you may see. I did, and it tickled my imagination…

Look at the photo while listening to Moby’s 02 – In This World  (…so many times I’m down, down, down with the ground)

*The propositions of the challenge say that we should provide a link to two bloggers we commented on every time we respond to CBBH challenge, and this month I will mention  Jeff, a brilliant photographer that I look up to who makes magic with his camera, and a Greek girl named Ioanna who I look forward to reading and visiting every chance I get.

I hope you will enjoy my “discoveries”. Happy blogging everyone!

New edition: after one glass of wine this modification seemed like a good idea; now it almost makes me puke….  Three glasses of wine later, I decided to make it black and white.. and the mushroom got a form of a silver coin.. to be honest in both pictures they look like money… There, some of you will finally get into their heads that some of my pictures are crap 😀

And now the one that should have been enough – editing can make you do strange things; it is important to know when to stop….

 

And less invasive B&W conversion but nevertheless a complete disappointment 😀
