20180101: Music from the streets & heart…

I was considering calling it a day & shutting down.

This man came wandering up, he spoke a word or 2 of English.

I am only slightly better with my Spanish.

But for a peso, he strummed his guitar and made a low singing of some kind of song.

I thanked him & since I took his photo, gave him another 5 pesos. Yes, he is strumming/playing in the photo & plays with the fret hand in that position.

I can looking into this face & listen to his song… yeah, maybe there is a miracle somewhere that some human will learn to use & teach PEACE around earth.

Happy Hew Year 2018.

May you bring as much amusing times as harsh times.

May we find time to laugh once more….

Here is the photograph taken by me with my camera. The starting point.

However what was not seen by my naked eyes,

 

20180101 halftone effect on print

Was the halftone effect, there for whatever reason. Enlargement was an issue to solve first.

The images to print for the customer. Black & white version.

And the Colorized version.

20171216: Poinsettia tree by Daylight in San Juan de los Lagos

I needed some nice clouds to make a dramatic sky.

Looks like the Sky spirits did comply & help out today. With a little off-camera flash I got a nice effect to show off the poinsettia Christmas tree here in San Juan de los Lagos, MX.
