Another photo from Ireland! Sphere in Sphere

March 07, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

As I prepare for my presentation I have tomorrow with the Sioux City Camera Club, I keep finding old pictures from our Ireland trip 3 years ago that I really like.  It's pretty cool looking at a photo with fresh eyes.  Some of the photos that I took to simply document the moment are now photos that I am loving after a little photoshop help to turn the photo into something that looks a little more like art.  Don't get me wrong, I know this style isn't for everybody, but I like it.  I had to research a bit because I couldn't remember where this picture was taken.  Turns out it was taken at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland and the piece of art is called, "Sphere in Sphere" by Arnaldo Pomodoro.  For me, the original shot I took of this was kind of boring.  After playing around with the image in Photoshop today, I now want to make a print of it.  Funny how spending a little time on something can change your whole opinion on something.  Have a great day everybody!  

Something else to ponder before I post this picture.  I read an awesome quote today by a great photographer named Sandy Puc.  She recently taught a course on CreativeLive.com and one of the things she said during the course was this, "What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it..." Wow!  That smacked me upside the head today.  It's so good and so true.  If each day of our life is like a finite amount of currency... $1 a day type of thing... How many dollars do you actually have left?  Spend each dollar wisely.  You can never be given more, but you can lose dollars and they can be taken from you... don't waste them on meaningless things.
