overpass

Los Angeles, Ca. – August 2011

I got kind of lost editing this one. I almost gave up. I even thought about not posting it, but then I remembered the goal of my daily quick edit. It's supposed to be about exploration, not the final product. I definitely explored some uncharted territory for this one.

NYNY crowd

New York, New York – July, 2013

I like how all these people are crossing a busy city street and no one is looking at each other or even their surroundings. The boy looks lost. Maybe he is using his iPhone to figure out where he is or where he is going.

Old Town San Diego

Old Town San Diego - September 2007

Today I played around with creating my own photo illustration presets in Lightroom. I like a filtered looking photo when the style makes sense for the subject. That's the challenging part. I think this photo was a perfect choice for this effect.

Here's the original photo.

Safari Park Lorikeet

San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Escondido, Ca. - July 2006

This image predates me photographing in raw, or editing with Lightroom. Editing this image reminded me of why my Daily Edit Challenge is a good thing. Without it, this photo may have spent the rest of eternity on a DVD.
