another road to solitude,
and a mish-mash of things,
found along the way

So I decided to take my "moment" shot and try some pp in paintshop….increased overall brightness, highlights and shadows...now there is a little more detail....and Simon I figured out how to add a border!

The second I just added a filter in the windows photos pp program...kind of like the depth in this one more...
cc please!

We are in a spot w no WiFi and poor cell service. Am missing internet but relishing quiet, solitude and family. Will have to try catching up next week. Some of my solitude shoots. ( I even figured out how to get the WiFi between camera and phone to work in order to do this!) these were all edited on an iPhone app but taken on my Nikon 750


Bueaties, Pat...Hope you had a nice birthday! Looks like it to me!!

Here's the Glencoe Shooter, one of my favorite captures from Scotland.


Sue, the tones in this image are just INCREDIBLE.... I am by far no Pro, but these just jump out at you; so beautiful...

Thank you so much! I just played around with Lightroom until it looked "right". Chuck is going to make a frame for it once it is printed out.

I was sitting here going through some of my files, just looking at what I have captured over the last 8 months and I came across this photo...it was taken on an outing with my good friends, we had been together all day and being a person who does most everything alone I was getting a little edgy and needed a break from being with people, so I used the line, "Hey you guys keep going I'll catch up!" and I found this little cluster of trees and I ventured in and just sat down on the ground leaned back, closed my eyes and breathed, emptied my mind and just plain relaxed. After a few moments I opened my eyes and saw this shot and took it. When I got home a few days later, going through the photos I had taken, I came across this one and said to self, "I really like this, let's see what you can do with it!" and I played a very little bit with the windows photo processing on my computer, got a little frustrated and just slid the color slider down to no color and saved it. I seen it tonight and thought, "WOW! There is a wonderful capture of a time of solitude!" I looked at the picture info....this was my 275 shot I had taken with my Canon just 9 months ago....I'm now well over 10k....but I looked at this and the calm feeling that I had when I took it just flowed back into me... and of course I needed to share....thanks for allowing me to...

Pg 37 - Vicki, I just love this image, not just because it fits the challenge
perfectly, but because of the balance..the composition..because I can
"see" what you felt when you captured this image. Awesome job.

I was totally alone in 1946, standing on an ice-covered alpine lake so I could capture this view. I don't know how thick the ice was, but the air was frigid. The static electric discharge in the image apparently was produced when I advanced the film -- or maybe when the Compur shutter blades opened and closed for this one exposure. But I suddenly heard sounds and looked down to see thin spidery lines fanning out in the ice under my combat books. I was quite a few yards out from the shoreline, but I managed to carefully get back to the shore. I apologize for the 73-year-old negative's quality, but the scene was such a prime example of stunning solitude that I decided to share it with you. The site was Konigsee; today there are lake cruises there for tourists.

Pg 37 - I'm sure it's been said before, RichardQ, but you, sir, are
a pioneer! I'm always amazed by your artistry, by your subject
matter, the way you honor the seen image...thank you for sharing
another beautiful example of what photography can capture when
seen through the eyes of an artist!

there haven't been very many roads to solitude...
here's a few...


Pg 39 - The Beatles were all the rave when I was growing up. I
graduated from high school in 1966, but these images remind me
of a song they released in 1970.

Remember this first verse?

"The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I've seen that road before
It always leads me here
Lead me to you door"

Nicely captured and shared, Dana!

Pg 40 - Isn't it great what some of those sliders can do? It's always
fun to see what you can add to an image you captured that you thought
was great, but for whatever reason, fell a little short when seen
on screen. A careful application of the right PP can revive what you
knew was there in the first place.

Nicely done on both of these, Vicki!

Different people obviously have differing opinions on what
constitutes "solitude."

Take my wife, for example. While I am never more relaxed
than while sitting on a beach, she is euphoric while hanging
from a parachute being pulled by a speedboat.

To her, that is the perfect solitude. And while I'm sure the
view from up there is fantastic, I'd be too nervous to even
think about capturing any images...lol

Love that last shot with the silhouette, Beautiful!!..pg. 20
