Another Rainy Day

It's another rainy day today. So what else can I think of but rain. Here's a raindrops photo for you.
As I mentioned before, raindrops and flowers are my favorite subjects for my photography.

Turn Your Photos Into Art

I just tried a program today. It's called FotoSketcher. You can use it for turning your photos into art. I really had fun playing with it. There are two great things about this program:
      1) It's easy to use, it's simply playing, and
      2) It's free! Can you believe that?
Below are some of my "art" after using the program. What do you think?




Here is the link to that program if you want to try it. http://fotosketcher.blogspot.com/

I don't have any commission for promoting this program. The owner does not even know me. I just want to let you know because I enjoyed using it.

I wrote a full blown article about Turning Your Photo Into Art in my HubPages:  Wait-Dont-Delete-that-Photo-Turn-Your-Photo-Into-Art?

Book Lover


How would you illustrate a book lover? Here is one idea. What do you think?

I love playing with paper especially when it is raining so hard outside and I cannot take any outdoor photos. I then turn to things inside the house. And since books and paper are aplenty at home, then I gravitate towards them naturally for some inspiration. I just fiddle with them and arrange them into different forms. The photo above is the result of "fiddling" around with books and paper. Tell me what you think.

Don't Delete Your Not So Good Photos, Play with them Instead





I have been trying to sort and clear my photo files since I already have thousands of photos in my computer drive. So every time I look at a photo, I have to make a decision on whether to keep or to delete them.

I always find it hard to delete photos because somehow I kind of have an attachment with them. Then I read one photographer who adviced - "Don't delete not so good photos right away. Check if you can still make something out of them"  

So I followed this advice and played around with some photos that I already marked "for deletion". Now I'm happy that I gave some photos a second chance because I came up with some interesting images after I used Photoshop filters. One of the results of this experiment is the photo above. What do you think?

Garden Beauties

I was so lucky to chance upon these two beauties along the roadside. It's good I had my camera with me so I was able to capture this rather rare event.

I call this rare event because I hardly ever catch photo of a butterfly. Most of the time, they just fly away before I could even focus.

So from this experience I learned to always have my camera ready with me.
