Your Monday Photo Shoot: Life In Negative

"There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are."

-Ernst Haas

Your Monday Photo Shoot: With photo editing tools, take a picture of yours and turn it into a negative. The idea here is not to take just any picture, mind you, but one that you think will look particularly striking with the colors inverted.

-John Scalzi (By The Way)

I hope it doesn't break any rules to display more then one photo, but I couldn't decide which one I wanted to display. It had never occurred to me to invert the colors of a photo, so I had lots of fun with this Monday Photo Shoot. :) The photo above is one in a series I am doing on the discarded couches of Berkeley. It is quite a phenomenon, but every late summer/early autumn the streets around the University of California at Berkeley, become lined with discarded couches as new students fill the frat and sorority houses. I have never seen this in other college towns, just here in Berkeley. I don't know...somehow I just found it inspiring and unique. :)

Here are some other subjects I found fun...

Squirrel Eating A Cracker

Bathtub Diva (Mannequin)

Pink Lily

Queen Dananus gilippus Butterfly

Drum Set (Greg Kihn Concert)

Lone Cypress, 17 Mile Drive, Monterey

Hot Air Balloons

The Moon Over Lake Tahoe

There they be. :) This was a fun assignment. :)
