Weekly Photo Challenge (4/8/16): Future

In response to the latest weekly photo challenge regarding the future, I also sought out how I could incorporate one of this past week’s daily one-word prompts…green.  The following two photos are what I came up with:

Each photo was touched-up using Lightroom 6.  The first photo is of one of the day-lily bulbs we planted two summers ago, which has begun sprouting this spring.  Second is the shadow of our son encompassing one of the other lily bulbs we planted.  Both photos are symbolic of my future, as well as the growth and beauty that is and will continue to come in my life.  I hope you enjoy them and have a great day!

Weekly Photo Challenge (4/1/16): Landscapes

I happened to run across this weekly photo challenge and, since I just happened to be perusing through some pictures with my wife the other night, I thought I’d toss a few of my own into the mix.  While I’ve been lucky enough to capture what I feel are some pretty decent shots from time to time, I still need to practice more and I have a LOT to learn.  Thankfully!  I mean, who really wants to know everything?  That would be stupid boring.  Anyway, the tablet I’m currently on doesn’t have Photoshop or Lightroom (which I also still need to learn :-D,) so these pictures were touched up using the pre-installed photo editor on my Microsoft Surface 3.  For a greenhorn in the realm of photography, I don’t think they’re too shabby…even if I do say so myself…lol.  I hope you enjoy them!

4/3/16 Update:  I installed Lightroom on my tablet this evening so I changed the original layout of this post to include an added copyright watermark and changed the display to run as a slideshow instead of having the images show up individually.  Otherwise, no additional adjustments to the images were done from what I stated above.  For those of you who have already viewed and liked our photos, and for any and all who come after you, THANK YOU!  😀
