It’s nice, it’s different, it’s unusual…
This photo is unusual for me in a few ways.
- I rarely photograph people, and if I do, I rarely share them, unless it’s my family! I took this photo of a little friend sharing a milkshake with her grandmother just last week. The look of concentration, with her eyes focused so seriously on her grandmother, captured my attention. I did get their permission to take the pic.
- I rarely use apps to edit my photos, (apart from Instagram) but have made an exception with this photo. I used the Pixlr app on my iPhone to convert this photo to a black and white picture. I think it turns it into something like a pencil sketch, an effect I quite like. What do you think of the result?
- I don’t do a lot of black and white photos either, so it’s always good to change direction every now and again.
Having said all that above I have to admit to using this same app, just last week for another challenge I’m undertaking. I edited this self portrait (the theme for the first week of the project) to make it look less like a selfie and to add a bit of interest. It’s also black and white! This photo was unusual for me as I rarely take ‘selfies’. The post can be seen here: 52 week photo challenge
Being unusual is actually a good feeling!
In relation to the Kath and Kim’s quote used above – It’s noice, it’s different, it’s unusual – you have to understand the Australian sense of humour from this satirical comedy classic! It just seemed right to use it for this post 🙂
I like the unusual, do you? Let me know what you think, I’m always interested in hearing from you.
