Wellness Wednesday -- Brooks Alberta Landscape Photographer

As you all know I love photography. No surprises there. I use photography as therapy (there is an actual form of therapy called Phototherapy). I use it to relax, process my thoughts/feelings and express myself. I just love to look at old images and imagine the life of the photo. Where was it taken, who took it and why was it taken.


This evening I decided to make my own "weathered" photo from one that took a while back of the large trees by Wal Mart. It was a foggy winter morning and I positioned myself so all of the trees were lined up and looked like they were one huge mass. here is the original image:




And here is my final image after a 5 minutes of working on it


Here is another version without the torn edges. which one do like better? (I kind of like the last one)


I hope that the City never cuts down these trees. It would be a real shame if they ever did.
