Shades Of Other Colors

Two Toned City: Awakening

I hadn’t realized just how long it’s been since I’ve posted any of my images. Don’t worry, I have not abandoned my site. I have a nice one for you today. Believe it or not, this was actually about 8 AM, and for some reason at that second, the scene caught my eye.

I found this shot to be absolutely hilarious! Only because I could not read the expression on his face! I couldn’t tell whether it was a face that said “damn its hot outside,” or “please help me, this woman is driving me nuts.” LOL

Warm Greetings


Here is a simple creative project that anyone can do. I used a large red cardboard (purchased from  a 99 cent store) as a background, and I purchased a xmas tree ball (which I also purchased from the 99 cent store. Geared up my flashes and tubes and fired it up. I think it came out a beautiful photograph, and yet I paid less than $3 dollars to achieve it. If you wanted to, you could even create something like this as a postcard and mail it to your family overseas. Staples always has printable postcards in stock; although I don’t remember how much they cost, I can’t imagine they would cost more than $10 depending on how many cards are in a box. Do you see why it helps to be creative? Instead of doing the same thing, day in and day out? I love being different, and I love being unique. All it takes is a little open mind, and the ideas will flow.
