This year I was outvoted on extending the sky on the other half of the panel and we did two-handed 'butterflies' instead. It didn't help that I had bought tubes of new colors and took them out. I think once everyone saw the cranberry, bright yellow, and purple... well...
I noticed that this year, my two-year old grandson's hand prints were the same size as my youngest son's when he was 1 1/2. This is one of the special things about this project.
There's a method of photography called tilt-shift, where the photograph of a wide view (usually a city- or landscape) is made to look like it's actually a photograph of a miniature model. The process went from needing to use a specific type of camera, to needing a specific type of lens, to today, where thanks to digital photography, the effect can be 'faked' in photo editing programs.
A couple weeks ago, the theme for 52 Frames was "Focus" and I took the opportunity to try my hand at the photo editing process for tilt-shift. The view is taken on a pedestrian walkway in Petach Tikvah near Beilenson Hospital and it's looking towards Tel Aviv. (Click on it to get a better view).
In a few hours from now, my daughter and I are off for a week-long London vacation. It was prompted mostly by the fact that there will be a 52 Frames exhibit at a London gallery and we're having photos featured there/for sale.
This is our first time going to London and we're really excited.
