The Elegance of Technology

I don’t pretend to know everything. I don’t even pretend to know a little. I am humble like that…. 😃

I always admit when I don’t know something.

The thing I think I am most proud in my personality is the fact that I have an inquisitive mind; a thirst for knowledge and for finding answers or scratching the surface of something new.

I think that is why I love technology so much.

I also don’t pretend that technology holds all the answers.

I does not… just because there are new things invented/created on a daily basis and what was an answer yesterday finds a different response today or tomorrow.

That is the nature of innovation.

 The interplay of light and shadow at Yale University

The interplay of light and shadow at Yale University

I took this picture in 2009 with my then new, Nikon D80. It was during a photowalk around Yale University in New Haven Connecticut.

It was languishing in my hard drive together with all the other pictures that me and my son took that day (he wanted to be with his dad, so I told him he could go with me and I gave him my old Canon G9 so he could take pictures as well).

I have come a long way in my post processing and one of the things I love to do is go back into my libraries to reprocess old images and see what new treatment I will give to the images that I have not process or that were not worthy of a second look before.

One kind of finds some jewels with the help of new techniques and processing software.

I think the image was ok in color, but that interplay between the columns and the light was clamoring for a Black and white treatment.

In color it was ok, it Black and White it was awesome!!

I think is a lesson that says: “Don’t throw away your images, you never know when technology is going to catch up to your expectations and creative endeavors”
