Old photos, new results

Old photos, new results

Do you ever go back and re-process photos that you have previously shared? I do that sometimes, and find that it's a great creative exercise.  But recently, I HAD to go back and re-create an old photo for a client, and it took me forever to make it look like how it looked when I first processed it, about 5 years ago.  And so I learned a lot in the process - and I am sharing those learnings and my observations in today's post.  Have a look!

La Jolla Cove

Ahh, La Jolla.  That place just totally rocks!  Do people that live in SoCal just love it or what?  The beach is gorgeous, the weather is fabulous - pure bliss!  I caught this shot while wandering around on the beach there, waiting on the light to change.  You know, as photographers we spend some time waiting...and waiting...and waiting.  But, it's always worth it!

La Jolla, CA is just a fabulous place and I love the beach there.  That's about all I can say about that.  I was there on the beach, camera in hand, stepping on rocks, talking to seals (or are they sea lions??), and listening to waves crash around me.  It was pure heaven.  I took some pictures too.

Clouds over La Jolla

 

La Jolla is a little town situated on a beautiful stretch of Southern California coastline, just north of San Diego.  I was in San Diego on business and after work one day was able to squeeze in a drive up there, hoping for some cool beach or sunset shots.  Lucky me, I got both.  In fact I came home with a whole lot of shots from that trip, but for some reason I have not processed that many of them.  I should correct that!  This was just after I arrived.  The beach there is popular with tourists and sea lions, but luckily no tourists got in my way (I was happy to have the sea lions around).  It was a cloudy afternoon, which gave way to a cloudy sunset, which made me happy.

I am wrapping up a quick trip to Montreal, Canada today and got out last night for some photo time in Old Montreal.  It was great, and it's a beautiful area.  I posted an iPhone shot on my Facebook page, which I often do while traveling.  If you are interested in following me, you can "Like" my page here: http://www.facebook.com/NomadicPursuits
