So when I decided I was done playing with the Lens Baby for the blog and determined today would be the last day, who knew it would be the day I nail it. The photo of Ganesha below is the culmination of playing with the LensBaby every day for the last 3 weeks. The idea with the LensBaby is that you have a sweet spot that is totally in focus and the outsides of the image are softly blurred. I got the sweet spot on Ganesha and in doing that enhanced that 3-D effect going on. The Ganesha head is obviously on wood or something and adhered to the wall. So it’s gonna pop. But I really think in nailing this sweet spot it popped even more.
I was in DC yesterday for a photo session. I tend to get a little (or a lot!) nerved up about driving into the city. I don’t know my way around very well at all. So if for some reason I make a wrong turn I’ll be lost! But this time I had great directions and actually somewhat knew where I was going. It was a piece of cake! Yay! Empowerment:)
I pulled onto U St from First, saw a great parking spot, whipped around and snagged it. Then I looked up and saw this.
If that’s not a sign that says park here, you’ll be good, I don’t know what is! That Ganesha spoke to me. It grabbed me and was like you are supposed to be here today and everything you are doing is taking you in the right direction. It was a sign on multiple levels.
Here’s a few more as I was walking around the Bloomingdale neighborhood. Love the row houses and all their flair and color. And it was absolutely gorgeous yesterday.
