Friendly Friday: Photo Edits

A contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Photo Edits.

A recent post for Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge made me think of the edits I have made to two shots of trees in the autumn. The two shots are of the same group of trees, one is a vertical composition and the other horizontal.

The vertical shot.

Friendly Friday: Alternative Version

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Alternative Version.

The prompt got me thinking about some of the photos I have taken when I gave an editor alternative versions. That made me think of one shoot in particular.

In the early 1980s I developed a process that allowed me to produce false colour photos from a monochrome original. Somehow the editor of a book on Influenza research saw some of these and commissioned me to produce one for the book cover.

This is one of the false colour versions I produced from a monochrome original.

And this is a colour shot of the Influenza virus model produced by putting coloured gels on the studio lights.

Friendly Friday: Ignored.

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Ignored.

My first thought was of some of the wildlife species that have ignored me when I was photographing them. I thought that idea was to obvious so I watched out for things that are ignored while wandering around Southampton, Ontario, Canada early on Saturday morning.

That was when I noticed people that are probably ignored by a lot of people. Most visitors to the town will never think about people emptying the garbage cans and watering the flower displays.

First there was a council worker emptying the garbage cans on High Street in Southampton.

Friendly Friday: Leaves.

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Leaves.

As there’s a lot of Maple trees around home I decided to go with a selection of photos of Maple leaves. They were all taken locally when I was out for a walk with a camera.
