There’s never been a better day to get lost. The three of us friends, Kristina (who goes by the nickname Bean), sweet Michele (whom I met not a few weeks ago and happen to really enjoy her company), and I, decided to go on a little excursion to find locations we could use for Michele’s photo therapy session. Our first agreement was to drive to the port, but you know roads in Bangkok, you get lost even with a GPS with you! The sign told me to turn left, the GPS told me to go straight, and I ended up at the tollway…… Well, we had no other choice but to pay the fee and enjoy the highway ride. We drove all the way to the other side of town, miles away from our intended destination, through short cuts and last minute turns, we ended up at my favorite park in Bkk, the Rama 9 park. The park is divided into many sections and decorated like the gardens from different countries – Japan, Spain, Italy, etc…it was wonderful, it felt like a vacation, like taking a trip to the beach, but instead of sand there was grass….. I know, it all sounds weird but that was the whimsicalness we all felt. I’m glad we got lost. Sometimes when things don’t go as planned, it ends up being even better!

My Photoshop journey is never the same. I seem to never be able to get the same effect for the second picture.
That’s because I usually experiment so much and never keep track of my steps! Something I have to learn to do if I want things to be consistent.
I don’t think I can fully say I’m a professional because my skills are nowhere near what actual professionals can do…. but I’m at the moment just happy to imitate them. I guess for this picture I lowered a lot of yellow in the selective color, worked on highlights & shadows, air brushed, and tipped up the blue curve.
