Different kind of Beauty (One Four Challenge: Week 1)

A new month, another One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn at Captivate Me. Robyn’s challenge is to choose one photo of your choice then each week for the next four weeks, process it a different way.

This is a photo I took off the structure that surrounds the actual hot springs out at Harrison Hot Springs. For today I simply added the Miniature Effect which boosts up the contrast , slightly blurring the edges.

There’s no denying I was expecting something a little more impressive of Harrison Hot Springs having spent an evening at the Blue Lagoon in Iceland but hey, it was a lovely morning and the company was rather good also! :)

ABFriday – July

Why do I keep doing this to myself? Yes, I’ve found another photo challenge, but when I read Stacy Fischer’s post regarding the After-Before Friday over at Visual Venturing combined with Robin Kent’s magnificent image, well… I just couldn’t help myself!

If you haven’t already visited Robin Kent’s blog, Photography by Kent, you really must to so. This is his image for the After-Before Friday Challenge.

Robin Kent One Photo Focus July

What is this exactly? It’s where on the first ABFriday of each month all participants edit the same photo. Cool huh?

Now, here is my version of the above iconic photo. I’ve cropped it, I’ve removed most of the people, then added a Grunge Filter to create the feel the photo is much older than it actually is.

To view all the other submissions for this awesome event visit Stacy at Visual Venturing. I so love how we can all look at the same image but see it so differently – BRILLIANT!

A different type of sign! (OWPC: Tsunami)

 

This week’s word from Jennifer Nichole Wells for the One Word (Weather) Photo Challenge is… TSUNAMI.

When we first arrived in British Columbia, seeing the Avalanche Warning signs blew me away. Then as we drove around Vancouver Island we came across the Tsunami signs… wow!

To Evacuation Tsunami Site

 

The images all the death and destruction from the Thai and Japanese tsunamis which hit so quickly and so suddenly, will forever be etched in so many of our memories.

To then see these signs on Vancouver Island highlighting how this is a very real possibility that could happen at any given time is extraordinarily.
