Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Weather

The first photo was taken in San Francisco. It was a cold and wet night, but we didn’t mind because the street looked pretty. The second photo was taken at Bay-Water-house at Chesapeake bay. Everyone went inside, leaving their shoes by the door.

      Thanks, Amy. I would like it to be sharper (like your photo 😉 But I’m okay with what I got. It’s an iPhone 6 photo since I didn’t want my camera to get wet ;-). Helen

        Thank you, Helen. Do you use Google photo? It allows users to do some basic enhancements, and it’s free 🙂 I store my photos in the Google photo.

          Amy, I don’t use google photo. If I remember right you have used other photo editing program on phone too, right? I really envy you for being able to learn all those apps so quickly and use them so efficiently!!! Helen

            I downloaded a few apps for iPhone. I didn’t spend time to learn to use. I searched on iTune, picked the one has four stars, and just played it with my finger; they made it soo easy.

    Sandals in such wet weather. 😛
    Beautiful shot of the rain after dark. Is almost like a fantasy land.

    Hi Helen, you had a great idea for taking the photos of the shoes.

    Both of these photos Helen are fun. The shoes because of the sandal that has Hollister on it. And I like the lighting on the street photo. 🙂

    I like both photos, but I prefer the one with shoes because it piques my curiosity. Who do the little shoes belong to? Why is there only one that says “Holister” and what could that possibly refer to? Is the turned over shoe the mate to Holister? Why is everyone wearing sandals in the rain? (no need for answers, unless you want to)

      Thanks, Rommel. Your kind words mean a lot to me. I know I am not a great photographer. As long as I can use my passion of photographing to do something good for the society, I will be happy. And I am getting close … 😉 Helen

      Tree, anyone can make that shot if he is at that spot 😉 Still, thanks.
      I read more about the 3 day walk — participator has to come up with a certain amount of fund raising, which makes me nervous. I guess I will support you instead ;-( Helen
