Well, I'm not a professional, by any means. I'm just someone who likes taking pictures, yeah? Before about 18DEC10, I was using my cell-phone to take pictures (3.1 mp). It did a pretty good job; however, for Christmas, I received a Kodak Easy Share which has 12 mp and take much nicer pictures. I'm saving this year, so that next Christmas I can buy myself a much better camera! :) I hope you enjoy my photos.

I noticed the ice on the mailbox when I took Sam's letter out to mail. It was somehow beautiful to me. I decided to mess around with the picnik again. So the following are two different versions of the same photo.

The original photo.

The manipulated one--black and white with red only on some parts of the mailbox.
Do you have any preferences? For example, how is it better aesthetically? Is there anything about either one which makes it pop at you?


  1. Think I like the original best. However, the other one somehow looks "colder". Guess because there's no color in the background. I am just all for "natural" with no messing around with it, but see how touch-ups and cropping and so on really help some pictures.

  2. Hey, noticed you haven't updated in awhile, which is a bit unusual. I know blogs come and go, but just stopping by to say I hope everything is alright! Was wondering where my photo-a-day buddy went.
