Photo Club Trip to Caltagirone

This past Saturday I met up with a bunch of friends from my Photo Club for a trip to Caltagirone. We had so much fun that a trip that was originally only supposed to be for a couple of hours (because of the warm summer sun) lasted until around 11PM at night.

One of the ways that I know I'm having fun is when I'm feeling creative, and boy, was I creative that day!  I shot over 4GB of photos so its taken me a few days to sort through and process them. I have quite a few photos that I want to share here, but too many for a single blog post.  Keep an eye out because I'll have new posts throughout the week.

I had several photographic ideas when I went out with the club on Saturday. I looked for lines, repetition, and color. Recently I realized that I hadn't done a black and white with a bit of color painted in for awhile.  I love taking and processing those types of shots so while I was out shooting I looked for scenes that would be ideal for that process.  Here are my favorites:





Have a great Monday!

Wayne - Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm glad you enjoyed my photos.

Mom - I used Photoshop's B&W conversion too and then painted away part of the mask. I'll walk you through it if you like. :)

Jenn - I'd LOVE to!! Once I know when I'm coming home maybe I can work out a "business trip" to come see you!!
