I can describe this past weekend in two words – learning experience. In fact, I think my brain is overflowing with new knowledge! Not only did I learn how to resize my photos for the internet, I also learned how to correct a common perspective problem as well as how to watermark my photos so they are more protected on the internet.
The only problem with learning all of these new skills is that my house suffered as a result. I had promised myself that I would dust and clean this weekend because you can write your name in most surfaces in my home, but blogging and editing photos is just so much more fun, don’t you agree? And it’s good to keep our brains stimulated as we grow older right? I’m really good at making up excuses for not cleaning aren’t I? Don’t worry, TBM, the house is tidy and organized – it’s just dusty!! 🙂
Anyway, here is another photo of Casa Loma that really caught my eye when I was reviewing my photos of our visit. To me there is a bit of a keystoning perspective problem in this photo as well, but I actually like the effect and left it as is. I love everything about this photo – the colours, the textures, the lines, the patterns, the perspective, and the details.
You will also notice that my name now appears in the bottom right-hand corner of the photo. I did learn how to properly make it look like a watermark by lowering the opacity, and I will do that on most photos, but this photo was just so busy that I had to make it darker. I don’t want it to distract people from the photo itself, so it will always be small and as inconspicuous as possible. Ok, that’s it – I need to go and rest my brain now. 🙂
