Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Here's a nice shot. No, I didn't take it. My friend, Chris took the shot during a trip to Kyoto. He also took the photo of the bridge I posted back in Nov. Photo of koi fish from Kyoto Japan

I find his photos are thoughtful, composed .. a bit like he is. I was looking through some of his photos, unfiltered, over the holidays and it struck me how he takes a single shot and captures the mood. I take dozens of chaotic, on the fly photos hoping to catch the right image. If I manage to grab the one I wanted I think "cool" and do a happy dance. Not necessarily the best method, but it works for me. 

I'm playing around with this with Photoshop, trying to turn it into a bit of digital art. But ... I love the photo as it is, so maybe I'll just leave it alone.

Catpaw with a pint & a typical bad haircutTime for a new look - the venerable cat on a postage stamp is now retired. As much as I loved him, it was time for a face lift - bad haircut & all.
