I spent a couple of pleasant hours at the Arboretum in Webster (Where Life is Worth Living). It’s definitely Spring, which is to say cold and wet, in this part of the country. But warmer weather is not far out of reach and the signs are all around us. It’s a great time to get the camera out and also it’s very uplifting for the spirit, too.
Also, there are two photos that benefited from the newest version of Topaz Black and White Effects 2.1, making an outstanding plug-in even better. Best part: Topaz offers free upgrades for life on all their products. This is not a paid endorsement.
PS: Regarding the photo of the house in the last post, I found this photo taken on January 3, 2012 that has the same house in the background. It had the mural painted on at that time and I’m sure that it had been painted at least months before, since no one paints the outside of a house in the Winter months. I mention it only in passing because I was trying to remember when I first saw the painting on it but this is the only clue I could come up with. The file has only basic LR4 edits so please forgive me this one time.
