A Blur

There are moments in life where it gets so hectic that time becomes a blur. Keep calm and never give up. – John Cena

The photograph was taken in Devil’s Dyke, Brighton and was edited to add some monochromatic effects using Pixlr.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: B&W Beach

During my recent trip to Chennai, I tried this long exposure shot in the beach. Since it was quite bright before the sunset, couldn’t use the bulb mode. So switched to Manual and tried it. Too many people around all the time. So had to pick up this small part where the two people on the left were static for some time (there is still one person who bought out that ghostly effect). Took that photograph and applied the b & w filter in Picasa and then applied the watercolor effect in Pixlr. Now it seems like some place from heaven?

Now you see me!

Well, not very clearly 😉 I love taking this kind of selfie, where I am visible, but not entirely. In fact, in this photograph, I have my friend too who just entered the room (totally unexpected) somewhere on the right-hand side of the photograph. But she is hidden too. I was trying to frame it in such a way that I will be between the floor and the roof and in between the window panes. But it came off a little bit towards the left with respect to the window panes. We were already getting late for a boating trip (which we missed anyway) so had to hurry up and then forgot about this altogether. Saw this when I was sorting the photographs. Should do better next time.
