This is a cross-over post from my art blog because these days I'm blurring the lines between photos and art (not that photography is not an art form, just that I am not a photographer as such). And also because I spent a lot of time (about five hours) making this picture!
One thing I really enjoy doing is "sneaking" pictures from a bus window. In my little village in the maritimes, we don't have a bus service so I take full advantage of the bus rides I take when visiting Vancouver.
If you'd like to see another version of this picture, and learn a little bit more about how it was made, jump over to my art blog .
Can you tell I'm dreaming of getting a smart phone or tablet so I can snap quickie shots with them and zap them with cool apps?! Instant gratification instead of straining my eyes with hours of Photoshopping ( but no no--Mama don't take my Photoshop away!) And how about Instagram? Is it the photographers' bane? I long to be able to post Instagrams. This is as close as I can get...5 hours worth of "instant"! Oy vey!
