Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

It’s been a busy few weeks off my blog. I enjoyed my break but I am glad to be back. While I was gone, I went on a safari in Tanzania.  This is the first photo from that trip that I have edited:

ISO 800 200mm f/9.0 1/1000

It’s a Thomson’s gazelle in Ngorongoro crater. It’s fair to say that this was a trip of a lifetime for me.  I think it’s also fair to say that I will be editing photos from this trip for awhile. This photo I straightened, did a levels adjustment, and sharpened a bit. It’s the latest addition to my Picfair portfolio.

I like to think that I am growing as a photographer and blogger. Over my break I changed  the theme of my blog. If you have a minute to give it the once over and let me know what you think, I’d appreciate that. My older theme was retired and I was actually having some trouble getting my posts to look how I wanted, hence the change.  Also, thanks to Jessie, I discovered a new photo challenge that I am going to give a try this year. I’ll probably incorporate most of those posts in with this weekly photo challenge, but it gives me something additional to think about as I am taking and editing photos.

I’m looking forward to another busy photography year. I do hope you will follow along.  Feel free to leave a comment about my photo or my blog’s new look in the comment section.
