Week #2 – Perspective

4 May

It is a good thing that I decided to do a Project 52 because even posting once a week has proven to be difficult. Work, taking care of mom, and several side projects have really taken over my life lately. I try to stop in on twitter once in a while just to stay connected but it seems that all my friends there are crazy busy as well. At least I feel better knowing that I am not alone! It must be in the air 🙂

It has still been nasty and raining around here but we are supposed to be getting some sunshine this week and I am looking forward to it. The flooding in our area was getting bad and very dangerous so we really need the rain to go on hiatus. I like a rainy day but only if I can stay in curled up with a good book or the remote control.

The photo I am posting today is another cemetery shot on yes another rainy day. I have found myself drawn to cemeteries lately and I am not sure why. I love really old places with beautiful stones and monuments. I love looking at the dates and finding last names that I have never heard of.

    Oh Mindy, you captured 2 of my favorite things, clouds and trees! This photo is gorgeous with the strong trunk and delicate branches and leaves set against the oninous sky…just gorgeous!

    Sending love to your mom and her beautifl family.

      The tree is what made me stop to take the photo, it just towered over the whole cemetery 🙂 Thank you for the compliment and the sweet love to my family. MWAH!!

    Whatever it is you do to these pictures makes them more foreboding in a way, but in some ways not so much, it’s like they aren’t “real”. I will be glad when the sun comes out and you post a bright and shiny photo full of hope .. the damn weather has everyone at wits end.

      I am looking for that sunshine too 🙂

      The processing on the shots is called HDR, where you take several shots with different exposures and then you combine them in a photo editing software to accentuate the highlights and low lights, In short this is what it really looked like with a little more contrast in the photo 🙂

      BRING ON THE SUN 🙂

    Hi Mindy! congratulations on starting the project 52. Since February I am participating as well, but we created a Brazilian version. Few photographers, but the result is great. I was wondering if I would accompany our themes, would be an interesting foreign participation in our group, what do you think? Posted on Tuesdays. Well, I invite you, let me know if you find interesting! 😉 @ fhturismo PS.: sorry for the English mounted on google translator.

    Playing a little catch up today.
    Love the shot. Fresh, new contrasted with old, death.
    Cemeteries are interesting places.

    Nice shot Mindy. I love the lighting on the ground and the clouds are great. I’m pulling for you and the family – “busy” seems to be everywhere right now too. 🙂
