Baloons

Baloons

Thomas Hawk’s digital connection is one of the blogs that have been in my RSS reader for the longest time. He writes about photography and digital media. Between all the excellent writing he puts some articles that simply contain an image. He is an excellent photographer and these images give a nice little break from all the reading I do when I have my head deep down in Google Reader. I think more bloggers should do this. Post a poem, a drawing or a photo…

So, here we go. I can’t compete with Thomas Hawk, but I have more than 30 000 images in my archive and shoot hundreds each month.

The image in this post is from the Gustav Vigeland sculpture park, shot last Sunday. Two girls selling baloons. I like the contrast between the colours and soft shapes of the baloons and the brown trees with no leaves in the background.

Camera: Canon S2 IS
Filters: unsharp mask, a slight increase of saturation and some adjustment of light and focus in the bottom of the image

    I just came accross your site, and I have to say this is the most boring blog entry I have ever seen. I couldnt read it all cos i was afraid i’d lose my will to live. But I recovered and decided to comment.

    Thanks Captain Obvious.

  2. Indeed. Alone, it is pretty boring. And if you don’t like the image it is extremely boring. The idea was that some clean posts with an image now and then could work between the other longer and more interesting posts.

    I would recommend that you take a look at this page to see some of the other stuff that is in here.

    Anyway, thank you for some pretty honest feedback. 🙂

    Yours truly,

  3. Thank you. One reader that nearly deceased and one that likes it. The cool thing about having my own blog is that I can do whatever I want. I’ll keep posting some pictures now and then. If my logs tell me that readers are dying of boredom and leaving the place in huge numbers I’ll have to reconsider…

    Although I don’t love this particular picture, I find the idea very appealing, so keep those photo blog posts coming. You’re doomed to hit bulls-eye with one of them one day, so don’t loose your spirit over one negative comment. 😉
