Canon Powershot ELPH 320 HS, Photo Challenges, Photography

Travel Theme: Pale

I love that Ailsa at Where’s My backpack? picked pale as this week’s travel theme.  I generally love bright vivid color or the drama of black and white, so it was fun to look for some pale images.   The photos I have chosen I took at the City Museum in St. Louis, Missouri.  If you are a photographer looking for a bunch of unique things to photograph under one roof, you should check it out.  I will say this though, it is a busy place, so maybe go early.

I take more photos with my Canon 50D, but for these photos I was using my Canon Powershot ELPH.  To be honest, that day I had both cameras and used both, but for these photos I was interested in trying some of the settings the Powershot had to offer.  The fish mosaic was shot using a sepia tone preset.  The stone statue I used a blue monochrome setting.  The female face mosaic I used a color picker setting to accentuate the pale reds and make the other colors more monochrome.  I was happy with these particular shots.  Another thing that I was happy to see was the relative lack of noise, despite the higher ISO, 1600, in two of the shots.

  1. I really enjoy your photos. The nature ones are beautiful. I like these pale photos too. Would you believe that I live in St. Louis and I have never been to the City Museum. My kids used to go there all the time. Thanks for liking my pale photo.


    • Thank you, I did enjoy your “pale” post, and thank you for visiting. The City Museum is unique. I’m not a huge fan of crowded indoor spaces which is why I went just as they were opening. By lunchtime I was ready to leave. Honestly, there is so much to do in St. Louis, that I am not surprised to hear you haven’t been 🙂


    • Yes, you should! says the person who sometimes forgets to take that advice 🙂 That is part of the reason I write this blog, just to keep track of what I’ve tried and to remind myself to keep trying 🙂 Thanks for your comment.
