I took 356 pictures on our trip to Tulsa. Lots of them were throw aways, but I got some that weren’t too bad so I’ll share them on posts later.
Ah, but there was one picture. One picture out of 356 that is my favorite, and made all the picture-taking worth it for me. I hope you like it too.
Man In The Clouds seems like an appropriate title for it.
In case you wonder how “I did that.” I didn’t. It was an accident. This is the original picture.
I was taking pictures of clouds, as I like to do. And, one of the problems of taking pictures from inside a car is that sometimes I get a reflection off the window I’m taking the picture through of things inside the car. So, when I got home and was editing the pictures, the first thing I thought about this one was, “Shoot, I got a reflection.” Hubby’s reflection in the window had “spoiled” the cloud picture. Then, it occurred to me that that reflection might be the best part of the picture! So, I cropped it to just that and enhanced the color a little. And got a picture I love.
I’ve come to believe that photography, for me, is a combination of opportunity, luck, fresh batteries and the law of averages — the more pictures I take the more chance I have of getting a good one!
