This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is to share a picture that captures a fleeting moment on the street.  It’s rare for me to attempt street photography, so I had to dig deep into the archives for this photo (scanned from a negative and leaving just a hint of blue color in the ocean).  I’m drawn to the mustache, hat and quiet contemplation from this older gentleman, and the energizing feeling of the ocean backdrop!

My interpretation of creativity, for purposes of this blog, is having fun with photography, haiku, “photomanipulations” or whatever else comes to mind.  When it comes to photomanipulating, I enjoy experimenting with digital art effects, like in the image above.  I used Photoshop Elements to create a watercolor effect on the original photo.  The scene is our hotel room on the Greek island of Mykonos during our honeymoon.

Here are a few other photomanipulations in this blog:

I posted this image and haiku several months ago, but I am posting it again since it fits the “W” theme for this week.  I created this artwork for my hubby.  Using Photoshop Elements, I applied a watercolor effect to the original photo.  The scene is a common one from the Greek isle of Mykonos, but it is where we spent part of our honeymoon…almost 11 years ago!

This post is for the “W” Challenge by Frizztext (“W” is for Windmills, Water, Watercolor)

This photo was taken when we were visiting the Greek island of Mykonos.  I wanted to create a silhouette of the front part of the church, and have the cross behind it illuminated by the sun.

What journey will be in your next sketchbook journal?

This is the ferry boat that took us to the Greek island of Santorini.  I took the original photo as it was leaving the island, on it’s way to pick up another group of passengers starting their new journey.  (I applied a sketch effect to the photo using Photoshop Elements.)

I just completed this artwork for my husband.  He would like it framed and displayed in his office!  The scene is a common one from the Greek isle of Mykonos, but it is where we spent part of our honeymoon…10 years ago!
