Over the weekend, I went into my camera’s menu and set it for ‘vivid’ just to add a little spice in my life. I’ve had my camera set on vivid before, but for some reason, maybe as far back as a year ago, I changed it to normal.
I liked what I saw on vivid, and decided to share them with you. Every photo I post on my blog has been edited, partly because I can’t leave much alone, but mostly because I think they look better that way.
However, all the photos in this post are SOOC (straight out of camera) with the optimize image set to vivid mode.
We’ve been trying to find the right spot for these hanging baskets and the little back porch is where they currently reside.
This one used to have plenty of yellow petunia blossoms but for some reason, they stopped. So I pinched them back a little bit to see if that would help.
Taken through the kitchen window during dinner last night. This is the only shot in this post that is not SOOC. I used Pioneer Woman’s Lovely and Ethereal on it and then a slight sharpen because it was so lousy.
I so like the little mohawk she’s stylin’, though.
So, if you can, set your camera to vivid and see what happens.
I couldn’t resist sharing this last one of the breakfast nook window where we love to sit. It’s got a wonderful view of all the goings-on at the feeders and it’s great entertainment during meal times.
See that branch there? You may remember the fishing rod my husband had there in the same spot.
The fishing rod was interesting, but the birds seem to prefer the branch. Frankly, I think it looked better when it wasn’t so junky out there. These photos were taken two years ago:
Ah, well. It is what it is.
Thanks for coming by today. It’s always good to see you here. Until tomorrow, then . . .
