A Retrospective...

I've been experimenting with old photos,
new processing!!!

Playing with desaturation of color and some selective coloring...

A pensive moment...using a processing preset...

Remembering Daisy...RIP...
(Kelly's alive and well!)

Playing with grain...vignette...etc...

Playing with crop, shadows and light...

Going spooky!!!


  1. Beautifully done! My favourite is those horses.

  2. Thank you William! They’re actually Mules!

  3. Good Jobs!
    My favorites are the lotus blossoms series. :)
    And my impression (especially for 4th, 6th and 10th (last one)) is that they seem like taken at the old good monochromatic film era.

    1. Thank you ShiroYuki! The lotus blossoms were taken at least 10 years ago...but I've always loved them and decided to play with the processing! And yes...that vintage look was my goal on those shots!

  4. Nicely done, the lotus are beautiful.

  5. I can't even pick out which I like best, very clever editing of old photos. Sweet babi Daisy, what a lovely girl. Fantastic cropping on the car.

    1. Thank you Jeanna! Daisy was a sweet girl...she is missed, even though we have a beautiful Golden now too!

  6. I like your edits. Most of us (me included) are guilty of over-saturation. Your desat edits here are beautiful. I also really like the grain/vignette edits that give give the photos that cool old-timey look!

  7. I particularly like the framing of your second car shot. Nice!

  8. that Chevy, cars were works of art back then.

    1. I agree Tom...they were so much more interesting looking then rather than the designs today!!!

  9. Replies
    1. Thank you Robert! No rhyme or reason for my selection other than I was moved to play with processing for them again!!!

  10. What a fine selection of photos!

  11. Great series of images! The dog and the last house are my favorites.

  12. several great shots here. Love the rainy window :)

  13. Very nice! I like the rainy window too. So many images, so many distractions!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  14. Really nice photos Kathy! Love the b&w of course. You did something with the color photos, but were conservative. Just right!
    Sometimes, by the time people are done processing they look more like paintings than photos...

    1. Thanks Pat! Desaturation with a little bit of selective colorization on those lotus blossoms!

  15. Those are beautiful! I've played around a bit with desaturation, too. Nice black and whites!

  16. Tremendously blessed with art of photography my friend!!!!!!

  17. We all knew a time when 1 BitCoin was worth more than $13,000 then it suddenly just crashed and now worth just $6,000.

    People never seem to know and understand the reason behind these drop and i will explain that to you.

    There was a total amount of BitCoin generated from the start by the developers at first and since its becoming valuable there was need to generate more of it. You all didn't get that right? Let me explain better.

    So imagine from the beginning the developers of bit coin generated 10,000,000 BitCoin at first. Now these 10,000,000 BitCoin circulated to individuals, so when the 10,000,000 BitCoin was already owned by individuals all over the world it started increasing in value.
    Now the developers saw that thier crypto currency has gotten more value but less individuals owned it, there was need to generate more of it for more individuals to own.
    And what better way is there to generate more of BitCoin?

    1 BitCoin = $13,000.
    10,000,000 BitCoin = $130,000,000,000.
    So there is $130,000,000,000 in the internet.
    Then the idea came to the developers!!
    Let's crash the price of BitCoin, use the remaining amount to generate more BitCoin.
    That is:
    Since BitCoin has built $130,000,000,000 in the internet, cut the price and generate more.
    I mean
    1 BitCoin = $13,000 then Now
    1 BitCoin = $6,000
    So from 1 BitCoin, 2.2 BitCoin can be generated.
    Now the question is where is the newly generated BitCoin?

    It's are everywhere in the internet!!!
    Its in every website you enter.
    Its in every social media platform.
    Its anywhere in the world!!
    Its in North America.
    Its in South America.
    Its in Africa.
    Its in Asia.
    Its in Europe.
    Its scattered everywhere!!!
    All you need to do is start Mining it.
    Now how do you start Mining these crypto currency?
    There are lots of BitCoin Mining software I will recommend Web'Miner.
    Its a software developed by an organization in China "Soft Tech Geeks". Have been using it a lot, I Mine anytime I want and have been making a lot from it.

    Some will say, why is he sharing it now?
    Some will say, if that's how easy it is why not Mine alone? So you can get it all for yourself.

    Well the developers are smart, they put a mining limit to it. The idea was not for a single person to have it, or for a particular group of people.

    The idea was for everyone, everywhere in the world to posses these crypto currency.
