This week, on Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #189, Tina from Travels and Trifles is having us go into our archives and explore all the photos that had been left out of previous photo challenges, hence odds and ends.
Like a few of the bloggers I’ve visited so far, I, too, find this topic to be challenging as I am, first of all, a landscape photographer, I rarely find odd objects (like the unicorn head in Tina’s post) that catches my eyes, and second, I don’t usually process a photo unless I know the photo would be used in my blog somewhere.
Which bring us to the photo above.
I took this photo last May and to be honest, I thought I would’ve used this photo by now but after scrolling, not once but twice through my WP archive, I came to the conclusion this photo must had slipped my mind somehow because this is one of my favorite photos from this hike. Hmm…
This may sound strange but I don’t like the photos my phone takes because let’s face it, the tiny lens isn’t as good as the big lens and large sensor of the DSLR camera. There have been a few rare occasions where I actually think the picture came out all right and the above photo is one of them.
I shot this sunset when I visited California in 2019. For some reason, after the trips to Antelope Canyon and Yellowstone later that same month, all photos taken in California seemed to had been placed on the back burner. I believe this was taken on my first night. After a long day of sitting in the car, I was dying for a walk and what better way to stretch my legs than take a walk around the streets of Pasadena?
The landscapes are definitely different as there are no palm trees in my neck of the woods.
