This morning I decided that, despite the fact there are still a billion things I need to get done around the house, I was going to get some writing done. But my muse has gone slumbers big time. So, what better than my default creative ‘thing’ to get the relevant part of my brain moving….
I noted yesterday that the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge was ‘Beginning’, and Ailsa’s Travel Theme for this week is ‘Possibility’. I had all sorts of ideas around maps and books and hopping around the Internet in search of ideas for affordable, interesting holiday destinations….then I drifted off to sleep.
This morning, I woke to rather a nice sky, and my mind careened off in other directions.
So I present Beginning as the promising beginning of a new day…
Possibility runs off into creative possibilities with this image. I had some fun with Color Efex Pro for the original image, then a couple of versions in HDR Efex:
and finally Silver Efex, for a monochrome version (just because I could):
So do any of these work for you? And if so, which do you like best? The second one is my favourite as it represents artistically what I saw in my own mind when I opened the curtains to a bright, colourful sky.
Now I’ve got to get some writing done…. Oh, and then there’s the small matter of re-jigging the blog (next weekend?)
