When Your Heart’s Just Not In It

Photographically speaking, that is. The camera is in hand. The setting is beautiful. But for one reason or another, your heart just isn’t in it.

Last weekend, Hubby and I were in Chico, CA with our camping club. We had a few places we wanted to see while in the area – more places than the club’s agenda would allow. But that’s a good thing, as these are fun people and fun times. The only down side of the weekend was the weather. It was HOT – 105! It was humid – 50%! It felt more like a Michigan summer day than a California summer day. Not a problem for my Michigander hubby. It was a BIG problem for this California girl who can’t take even 105 degrees of dry heat.

We’re at the Honey Run Covered Bridge and we’re taking pictures. I’m feeling miserable because of the heat and humidity – so my heart is not in it. Hubby is unfazed by the weather and his heart is in it.

When we get back to the RV and look at our images on the laptop you tell immediately that one of us got some great shots and one of us didn’t…not even one good shot in the lot.

The other day when I was selecting pictures for our traveling blog, they were all from Hubby’s file. I don’t do any editing on his pictures except for taking them into Picasa and clicking the I’m Feeling Lucky button. It just takes the RAW image up a notch, so it’s not so flat looking. If you want to see his images, they are on TowingFlo.com.

Figuring I’d just wait till our next trip to the Chico area and photograph the bridge then. I was ready to send my photos to the recycle bin when I thought about working them with some of Topaz Lab’s programs. I was able to take some of these images from fartsy to artsy.

I had some fun and I like the results too. Or maybe it was simply that my heart was finally in it.
