A term coined by contemporary literary philosopher Gary Saul Morson to capture "a way of thinking about human events that focuses on the ordinary, messy, quotidian facts of daily life—in short, on the prosaic. Cloaked in their very ordinariness, the prosaic events that truly shape our lives—that truly are our lives—escape our notice." *
It may be that our most prosaic events, those with father and mother, are the least discernible and the most critical in shaping our lives.
I found this beautiful magazine called Seeing the Everyday. It inspired me to look a little more carefully at what ordinary shapes my life and my family.
My favorite is the last. I used a PW action to capture a warm Fall feeling.
Which one do you like? Do you have any favorite post processing rituals? Would love to hear about them. I'd also like to thank the Shutter Sisters for choosing my photo for the daily click.
On a quest to eat healthier I decided to try a new recipe every week. This week I made a delicious soup, found here.
Instead of cloves I added nutmeg. Yummy. I loved the soup and it's
creamy goodness without actually having to add cream. Another great
result of my soup day was I learned how to cut a butternut squash. That
was a pretty daunting task. This is definitely worth a try, I will be
making this soup all winter.
Happy New Year. I hope everyone had a great New Year's eve. My family and I had a fantastic evening. I took a lot of pictures.
I love to compare post processing results. Most of the time I like to enhance my photos with photoshop. Just a little tweek here and there. Sometimes I create the feeling that wasn't quite captured in the original shot. Depending on my mood, my pictures may be melancholy, romantic, dramatic or playful. I love that you can really tell a story with photography.
Here is my SOOC
Above is a dreamy romantic story that happened long ago, below is a fresh beginning.
the last photo is almost wickedly scary, but I love the contrast.
Which one do you like? What are your favorite post processing techniques? I am excited to learn new techniques this year (one of my 2012 goals).
