Fun Photo Friday — Off-Season Ketchikan 2


Abstract photo manipulation

I admit it. I went a little wild for today’s Fun Photo Friday. Okay, make that hog wild. I went crazy. I had fun with everything from boosting colors to color filtering for conversion to black & white. I even have in today’s collection a B&W image into which I inserted “film grain” to give it a classic old-timer look. I hope you enjoy me playing around a bit today:

Creek Street without the Color is still pretty “Colorful”
Oversaturating Creek Street also give a classic over-the-top feel
Film Grain can sometimes be your friend
Warming saturation to amplify a beautiful totem

Fun Photo Friday — Off-Season Skagway Favorites 2


Getting a Leg Up on the Restaurant Competition

Starting next week I’ll show you Ketchikan, which was the substitute for Sitka on Voyage 2 due to expected weather. As for today, it’s Fun Photo Friday. And, as with last week, this week displays nine favorites from our back-to-back voyages to Skagway during the off-season.

Fun Photo Friday — Off-Season Skagway Favorites 1


On most Fun Photo Fridays I usually present somewhere between four and six favorite photos. Not so with Skagway. There are a lot of fun shots you can do here. So, today and next Friday you’re going to get nine each. I’ll also be presenting some with commentary before assigning the rest to a photo gallery/slide show at the end.
