Lancaster Musicians

I think that when things are kind of slow in my life (like now) I’m going to post photos. Sometimes they will be straight, traditional photographs. Other times, like today, they’re going to be “before” and “after” comparisons of photos I have manipulated. Sometimes the subject interests me, but the photo is just missing something. It is lacking that “snap” or color or…whatever…that makes it remarkable. So, I’m starting with a shot of some musicians I photographed in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania a couple of summers ago. The afternoon was so much fun. But, the photo was kind of…lacking. So, I applied some “artsy” treatments to it and got an impressionist version that I really like. I printed it on textured canvas, and it hangs in the hallway of my home. It makes me smile every time time I look at it, not only because of the memories it brings back, but because now I actually like the artistic outcome.

What do you think? Original…or “artsy?”

    Glad to be back home and to be able to check in on blog friends!

    I like the artsy – It looks pretty neat – like it should be used in an ad for an area tourism website or magazine ad. Very “splashy!”

    What an amazing difference. I love the artsy one. I bet it looks amazing hanging in your home. Thanks for stopping by my place. I’ll keep you posted on the golfing, if I dare to try again. See you later

    Hi there. I’m a new reader to your blog. I traced you through a comment you left on Country Girl’s blog. I do that a lot. I see an interesting comment, then I follow the commenter to their blog, and so on. I rarely leave comments unless I like what I see. Your blog is amazing! Then I followed your blog link to your web site, then your jewelry site. Is there anything you can’t do? You’re a great writer, an even better photographer, and are amazingly talented at making jewelry. I’ll be back often. Thanks much for sharing!
