ABOVE PHOTO OUT OF CAMERA, BELOW, HIDDEN POTENTIAL, developed by ME with my trust PhotoShop 7 The rest of the photos below, are 1 out of camera, 2nd photoshop
Last week, while in Wal-Mart, I noticed the above display and boxes of pumpkins of all sizes and colors. (yes, I did have my slimline Coolpix in my pants pocket, doesn't everyone?) Yes, I did take it out and Madly Snap a few shots. (you say, do they let you do that? I did it, but later heard from a blogger I could have been in trouble, so do not do this, or IF you do, don't tell them where you got the idea)
Are you wondering where I am going with this? I almost deleted all the photos because taken under flourscent lights, they did not come out very well and also did not Speak to me. they were just ugly pumpkins all jumbled together. I needed a fall header and decided to see if I could find any hidden potential and then found i could not stop transforming what at first seemed so blah into something I loved.
the idea for this post came while watching the local news last night, Talking Head was inteviewing the principal of a local school, and Hubby says
"She's a PRINCIPAL?"
I said "why do you say it that way?" Hubby said "well LOOK at her!"
Are you picking up what I am putting down???
Just as I had judged these photos as not good enough because of the way they LOOKED, Hubby did the same thing in thinking the woman on the TV did not have potential for a principal because of how she LOOKED.
As for me, what was the first thing I thought? these are not pretty enough to post or use, just get rid of them. My second thought was Make Them Better, Make them Prettier, Change them so they are more pleasing to ME. OUCH.... what if these were PEOPLE? would I think the same thing? I did the same thing hubby did, judged the book by its cover without thinking about how good these pumpkins were inside. (to be continued tomorrow)
