No, I didn’t just swear at you. That is what this plant is called. I’m guessing it’s a succulent. But it may be a relative to the artichoke. None of my followers on Instagram seem to know and I’m too lazy to look on the Internet.
I believe in always sharing how I process my photos. I a, no great post processor, but I find it extremely helpful when people share how they get to the end of a journey.
I believe that the more I share, the more I will get back. Like, what goes around, comes around. I have found that saying to be more than true in my time here on earth.
I also particularly love the phrase “give the person enough rope to hang themselves.” That’s another one that I have always seen come true. It takes awhile, but it happens. Usually, they don’t need all that much rope. What I have also observed, is that we don’t realize what’s going on inside that person that is making others so miserable. I have learned they are miserable inside. Like I don’t need to bother with revenge or getting back at them. I could never think up a punishment worse than what they do to themselves. Plus, if I were to bother with revenge, it would harm me. It would take me into being negative. It would poison me. Why go there? It’s not worth it. It really isn’t. It may seem so at the time. You can almost taste it. But I know now, it’s simply not. But learn for yourself. Waste your time if you want. Most people have to learn the hard way. I don’t know why that is, but they do. I did. I wish I had taken more advice. I wish I had listened a bit more to my Dad.
Ok. Back to sharing the post processing of the photo. I can’t. I found this inside Snapseed. I hadn’t saved it! I don’t have a clue what I did to it. Other than to say it was in Snapseed. I don’t use Snapseed that much for post processing anymore, so I think it was in there to crop it for Instagram. But then why wasn’t it saved? I don’t know! But I love this. It’s not straight from the camera either.
I’m grateful I found it. I think it’s one of my better photos. I’ve been trying very hard to get this effect. Very light lights and dark darks. I know people are using Stackables for this. While this is close to what I’ve been trying to get, it’s not there yet.
So, I’m going to keep trying.
