A short walk
Saturday’s walk was a quick one as I spent some time shopping for a change – I had to buy a new watch. The old one showed signs of aging after over 31 years (aren’t they supposed to last longer?). Luckily, I found a shop where advertising half off and I hope I made a bargain.
Even if we are going in the right direction now, i e the days are growing longer and longer, daylight still disappears quick (with the speed of light?) so I didn’t get as many pictures as I wanted. Well, there are things to do at home too. I have spent many hours behind the computer trying to learn digital editing properly. It’s fun, nobody can deny that, but the method “this is how it’s done, step by step” hardly ever works on me – working on a “case” feels much better, even if I sometimes think back to the darkroom era.
Of course there are many things that are a lot easier to do the digital way than the darkroom way, but there are many traps too. It’s so easy to add a number of effects so learning when to stop is a must. A good image isn’t just a load of effects – it consists of balance, harmony and the artistic thought behind it; an easy thing to say but I wish reality could be that simple.
