I’m afraid I have slipped a few weeks behind in my 52 week challenge. I have spent part of my day revisiting photos that I have taken over the last few months. I have been looking to see if any that will fit some of my unused themes. I found this one and applied some HDR effects but then also used some new sharpening technics I learned last week at a workshop in Tampa. I think it’s fun, especially with HDR, to not process all your photos at the time you take them. It’s fun to go back later and try new things!
We had ourselves a little photography adventure yesterday. My plans fell through on another project that I had scheduled so I had some time I hadn’t counted on. I gave another blogger a call and we set out to a local antique shop on a hunt for a specific prop I have been looking for. Of course we had our cameras with us too.
The shop is called Retro Rosie’s Vintage Clothing and Accessories and Cobweb’s Unique Finds. It sits along Manatee Avenue near downtown Bradenton. It’s one of those little places that I drive past all the time in a hurry and always think, I wish I had time to stop by and look around. I’m always in some big hurry to go someplace I think is important at the time. Or I am with my husband who thinks it’s a bad idea. You know what I’m talking about ladies! I do the head pivot and say I’ve always wanted to stop there and he acts like he didn’t hear me and drives faster so I can’t say it twice!
The girls at the shop were very nice and welcomed us to take all the photos we wanted. I think they even stayed open a little late because we were having so much fun! I thought this photo would be nice for my blog. I think it is full of all sorts of treasures! My husband might think the other!
