Digital cameras will quite often produce bright colours. I prefer the shades in this picture. The edit makes it look like a stamp and so more interesting. This image is at 300 dpi and it was taken with my Nikon D3200. If you’re having a photo enlarged or entering it for a competition, they often have to be at 300 dpi.
One of the reasons I started A Zillion Ideas was to give people a chance to write and be published. You have to write to gain experience and having your work published concentrates the mind. You try harder when people are reading your work. Fairy Dharawat has written some good posts and more recently she has been joined by Ramya Raju. I would have liked a few people from the UK too!
I’ve struggled this summer to take decent pictures for my blogs. The constant rain and dark skies have made it challenging to say the least! Making the blogs interesting too is always difficult. I have been writing a dozen blogs since starting this one every week. My WordPress blog will be 2 years old next month and have page views in 5 figures and this one is still struggling because it’s only 6 months old. Most readers for this blog come from search and I don’t expect it to do well until we have more subscribers. You can subscribe using the box in the sidebar or tick the box when you comment.
The summer seems to have returned to England at long last. I took this photo the other night, with the sun shining through the trees. It seems a popular picture, perhaps because it excites the imagination. Maybe it’s the unusual angle. I took it from the top of the aqueduct. I get nervous of heights and of deep water so I wasn’t very comfortable. I also wrote a few blogs this week, that you might like to read. Just up the road from there, the river crosses the road under a bridge and then runs alongside the lake separating it from the playing fields and the canal. There’s a 700 year old Manor House down the road in Hall Green Road. You can just see a bit of the 18th century aqueduct in the picture.
