Good Bye to The Missing Year of 2020

The worst thing about 2020 was the time lost. I don’t think age matters. If you are old like me you think how many years do I have left. If you are young it is a major part of your like spent in quarantine. Time lost is time lost. It can’t be replaced. 2021 brings us hope. We will hopefully soon be able to travel again, see family, hold events and dine out. I am eager for that return to a normal life.

As the sun rises on a new year, be safe, wear a mask, get vaccinated and hopefully soon we will be set free.

Bodies in Motion Redux

A number of years ago I made a video entitled Bodies In Motion. I didn’t like it. So I remade it a while back and never published it. Hope you find it entertaining. The only video I ever did creating most of the sound track in Garage Band.

Tapas Barcelona Style

I have posted some images of Barcelona. The art of Antoni Gaud, the sculpture and architecture are all magnificent. The city is electric, alive and vibrant as are the people. However, one of the great things I loved about the city was the Tapas restaurants.

The first place we went to was El Nacional which was recommend by a friend. It is actually a collection of restaurants which we visited twice. Quite honestly you eat there every night it was that good. However, one of my favorites was Xistorrā a small tapas only restaurant also pictured here.

Thinking of Mexican Sunsets

For the last few years we have traveled to warm places in the winter. Mexico, Florida and California have been our winter destinations. This year travel is not possible due to COVID-19 and the snow today has got me thinking about Mexican sunsets/

Selective Color Revisited #2–Color Guard

I published the full color version of this picture earlier this week in Changing of The Guard. I thought the guard got lost in the image so I did a little bit of editing to make him stand out.

Selective Color Revisited #1–Girl in The Blue Dress

I have been writing this blog for about 8 years and now have over 2000 followers in over 30 countries. I have not monetized the blog and am pretty casual about promotion. I do follow the analytics though and the posts that get the most attention are concert images, zombie images, wildlife images and attractive women. I have notice another trend recently after publishing A Monaco Moment.

People like selective color images. Combine an attractive woman and selective color and I have a really popular image. Here is one similar to A Monaco Moment taken in Milan a few years ago and edited in 2018. It also received a lot of views, comments and one person in Europe purchased it last year.
