Week 11: My Favorite Color

What? Blogging on a Saturday? I never blog on the weekend! Well, this weekend is different because a) I am quite behind in blogging about my 52 Weeks of Awesomeness and b) it's Valentine's Day weekend and I MUST blow about what my fabulous wife gave me! :)

Do you ever occasionally look up into the sky and think, wow, the sky looks beautiful right now? Well, I love the color of a clear blue sky, plain and simple. Ever since I was a little (relatively speaking, I was actually quite chubby) kid, my favorite color has always been blue. Back then though, I cheated and claimed that every shade of blue was my favorite color. Now that I'm older (but not much wiser), the color of the sky on a cloudless day is my favorite shade of blue :) In Lightroom 3 Beta, I added some grain to give the photo some texture. I feel that it gives the overall photo a more artistic feel...

Photog Info:
Natural Light - Handheld
ISO 500
SS 1/160
f/16 - if you ever want to see how dirty your sensor is, shoot at f/16 or above and you'll see all of the dirt specks, lint, etc that takes extra time in editing to clean
For those of you interested in participating, PLEASE do! I would LOVE to see your pictures! So please comment and leave a link to your blog/photo gallery!

  1. oooo I love that shade of blue, too!! i like the graininess. :)

  2. yum - i dig that blue too! it's amazing how close it resembles your blog color.

  3. Thanks all! I wanted to add some texture to the photo and I didn't want to do it manually with camera grain...

    Appreciate it Jeni! It's definitely not too big of a coincidence that the colors are similar! :)


Thanks so much for leaving us some love!
