Pondering Significance22 July 2014 -- 203/365Lincoln, Rhode IslandYears ago, I worked with someone that had a few signature phrases.  For instance, at lunch he would go downcity to "cruise the earth."  While daydreaming, he would say he was "pondering significance."  At Christmas, he gave his boss a set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figurines, and he once had an interesting cubical war with another coworker involving little green army men and very large rubber spiders.  I should mention that programmers tend to have very warped senses of humor.  In any case, while driving through Lincoln Woods today, I spotted this guy just relaxing along the dam and staring off into nothing.  It immediately brought "pondering significance" to mind, and it just begged for a photo.  You see the results.Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX.  I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, boost black, details, and protect highlights.  A levels adjustment was added in PSE.

The Artist's Viewpoint20 June 2014 -- 171/365Providence, Rhode IslandI planned to do a bit of street photography at lunch today, so I parked at the Roger Williams National Memorial as usual.  There were about a half-dozen artists there painting various scenes around the Memorial.  They are taking art lessons at Hamilton House, an adult learning exchange in Providence that offers a wide variety of art related courses for adults over age 55.  The artists at the Memorial today were working in different mediums, ranging from oils to washes to - as in this photo - acrylics.  One woman works in "water based oils" which is a concept I'm really going to have to research since the term seems chemically contradictory in nature.  Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX.  I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, details, boost black, and boost white. A levels adjustment was added in PSE.

Shredded24 July 2014 -- 205/365East Providence, Rhode IslandI went to the location of the old Crescent Park boardwalk, destroyed in 1954's Hurricane Carol, looking for interesting photo opportunities.  It was low tied, so I was able to walk the beach a bit.  This piece of driftwood leaning against one of the old boardwalk pilings caught my interest.  One wonders what storm ripped that branch off a tree, but given the amount of shredding it was certainly violent.  I love driftwood shots to begin with, and this branch had some interesting character that I thought would work well in black and white.Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX.

February 10...  Beach #4.  Almost every day I take Blif for a walk along the beach. Especially in autumn and winter the sky puts up magnificent shows. The other day this sky came up covering most colors even a bit of green at the left. The show went on for app. 10 minutes, and then it was all over.

Have a day of being alone, but not lonely - or in great company; the choice is yours!
