I have begun to experiment with Topaz Glow, an image editing software that can provide some dramatic and creative image. The slideshow below presents a few of these images. The history of photography ranges between efforts to record highly realistic images and to use a variety of processing steps to create more “artistic” images. An artistic image that is not based on a carefully exposed capture of the intended image is suspect. But if you have a great image to begin with, creative experimentation is both fun and important.
2014 in Review
2014 was a year of transitions. Our beloved brother-in-law, Bob ended his struggle with liver cancer in April with a peaceful passing surrounded by those who loved him the most. In November the mother of my five siblings and me died peacefully. At 102 she was the last surviving member of a generation that had seen more change that perhaps any other in the history of the world. In September, however, Neko Ruth Doyle entered our world as the grand daughter of my eldest sister, Anola. One can hardly imagine what changes Neko will experience in her life.
