Wings by Rommel Parada, on Flickr
I was browsing Flickr the other day and I came across a very nice picture of a sunflower field but in the description the photographer was complaining about how some other artist told him his photostream was a little on the “soft” side with all the pictures of sunsets, flowers and landscapes.
This brought me to the conclusion that maybe I should throw one or two hardcore shots on my photostream to compensate for that fall foliage shooting spree I went on right before Super Storm Sandy hit taking all the leaves with her.
I took this shot with my cell phone camera (my first shot with a cell phone as I didn’t have my camera) and did a little post processing to remove part of my shoe which was in the shot. Now my photostream shows the following: autumn tree with roots, autumn tree with bright orange leaves, autumn landscape, autumn sun through the leaves and MANGLED WINGS!
I think I overdid it but I’ll leave it there and see what kind of response I get. Ironically I put a short poem in the description in hopes of softening it up a bit.
