I wasn't able to edit all the shots at the time, here are the remainder of the shots which I've just had a chance to do.
It was actually quite a weird day because it was very cloudy and quite sunny. It had just rained and there was a some strange streaky clouds in the sky. In addition there seemed to be a lot of planes flying around creating contrails.
These all combined to create some strange cross hatch type patterns in the sky and also resulted in sudden changes in contrast and dynamic range.
Most of these latter shots were taken when the sun was poking out from behind these clouds which created a lot more contrast.
I thought they would be ideal to process in monochrome as a result of that.
I have also include a couple of redone versions of my favourite gravestones from the previous time (the Jesus/angel sculptures) in case anyone wants to compare how they look in monochrome (they ar
I've always really enjoyed dancing, and actually when I was an ickle girl, I spent a good amount of time learning and practising various styles of dance including Ballet, Traditional Chinese Folk Dance and even ball room! Obviously the modern street, jazz, pop etc. interest me a great deal too.
Perhaps common knowledge to the younger audience, K-POP has taken the world by storm, what with groups like Big Bang, Girls Generation, Super Junior, 2NE1 and more recently EXO, T-ARA leading the pack, K-POP has really made quite an impact globally not just in the music industry but also in orthogonal industries like film, fashion and pop-culture.
One particular artist that has made quite a bit of noise is Hyuna.http://www.allkpop.com/upload/2014/07/content/HyunA_1405560029_20140717_hyuna3.jpg
Hyuna is the same age as me, but she has already made a significant impact in t
What's up, Steemit!
I would love to shake the hand of any man that found this
introduceyourself thing easy. I've been staring at the computer screen, trying to come up with something to
introduce myself for far too long and, after failing miserably, I figured I'd keep it short and sweet.
My name's Faye, I'm a 25 year old Brit residing in the jungle in Costa Rica and all I can really say is I spend Far. Too. Much. time drawing. Really. I'd say I spend a solid 50% of the time I'm awake with a pen in my hand, which makes for a pretty reclusive existence. A reclusive existence I try to balance this out as best I can with much adventure as possible. So when I'm not drawing in the arms of mother nature, I spend every penny I have on exploring all of the crazy beautiful places this world has to offer.
I've recently been introdu

This was a lovely day and I'm doing fine so far. Blood pressure seems to be normal, temperature too. Though I had much excitement and some stress connected with that many altcoins rising today at bittrex and poloniex. Had RAID degraded in one of my wallet machines recently and then the only HDD that left failed too. Now the wallets with decent amoun
And then it doesn’t matter if people told you it’s an ugly, smelly dump, you know better than that: beauty is everywhere if you look for it.
I already found beauty in the first 2 people who picked me up and drove me out of Salta. This jolly couple taught me the best foundation of marriage is humor (not that I have plans to ever force myself to eternally love someone bound to a contract), which the man immediately demonstrated by making a selfie hugging me while pretending to throw his wife out of the car window. From the crossing where they left me an YPF-gasoline truck immediately picked me up, of which I know they’re legally not allowed to transport passengers due to their tricky load. Not that trucker Ruben Dario (yeah just like the poet) cared, he just hid me
Good morning dear Steemians,
Today's Wednesday we want to start full color and full of positive energy. Since we are at the beginning of spring, so could not fit better than a few pictures of Blossoming Cherry Trees. The following pictures are from Frankfurt am Main, but not from this year. I found it wonderful as these blossoming trees embellished the cityscape. Everywhere the stains of color were visible and stuck out of the silhouette of the city. So love Steemians, have fun looking at these colors. I wish you a nice, positive and of course stress-free day.
Guten Morgen liebe Steemians,
**den heutigen Mittwoch wollen wir Farbenfroh und voller positiver Energie beginnen. Da wir uns am Anfang des Frühlings befinden, könnte also nicht besser passen als ein paar Bilder von Blühenden Kirschb
Freedom. Liberty. Equality. Everyone has a voice and a stake. Steemit is a beautiful idea.
I have hired @lightsplasher to give me a makeover. The deal was made in a shady back alley of one of the comment chains. We tossed around ideas, an offer was made, and the deal was done. I am waiting for the new profile logo to go with my comments, but I wanted to take the footer for a test run (below). Check out the master of this craft at lightsplasher.com

In the street, spring, everything is green. Children, teenagers and adults got out of their homes. I have not far from home a football field, there already at full speed chase the ball. I came up with the idea of drawing a player's boyfriend. I finished my work. I drew this drawing with oil paints on canvas.
By the way, outdoor games are very useful for health. There are many games such as, for example: foodball, hockey, tennis, basketball, volleyball, and many others, even "catch-up" ones. The more that spring has come all blooms and smells.
I too soon will get out on the street to draw in the fresh air and share with you my drawings.
I always look forward and try not to forget the past. When I paint, or sculpt, or think about it, what I get comes out ot that.
So, here is what I'm working on these days.
Big individuals merged in a city, or in a cityscape
Crowded cities. Web of lives.
Surrealistic and cartoonistic wilderness.
I don't want to spend many boring words about these subjects. But I'll keep you updated. You are warned! ;)

Most of all she loves to cuddle and run. So she does what helps people to get rid of diseases and depression. Her endless optimism and cheerfulness energizes desperate souls.

봄바람을 타고 2017년에도 어김없이 벚꽃 개화시기에 이목이 집중되고 있다. 벚꽃의 개화는 봄나들이와 축제의 향연이 시작됨을 알리는 순간이기도 하기에 모두가 설레는 순간이 아닐 수 없다. 기상청이 발표한 데이터로 가장 먼저 제주도가 3월 20일에 개화하여 대구, 여수, 전주, 강릉을 거처 마지막으로 서해안의 영향을 받고 있는 인천이 4월 10일로 예상되고 있다.
전국의 벚꽃 명소 중에 대표적으로 <꽃놀이>라고 말할 수 있는 곳은 서울의 <윤중로 벚꽃축제>와 <진해군항제>가 있고 오늘은 <진해군항제>에 대해 소개하려고 한다.
<진해벚꽃축제>라고도 불리는 <진해 군항제>는 지난 1953년 4월 13일에 우리나라 최초 충무공 이순신 장군의 동상을 북원로터리
