I finally had time to develop a few more photos from my Paris archives ... and to try something new! Generally my photostream features straight photography, but looking through my images I found some that -- usually because of a flat looking sky -- didn't quite speak to me so I thought it might be fun to try adding a layer of texture to them. When possible I like to photograph at dawn, dusk, later afternoon, at night or around rainstorms because those atmospheric conditions naturally create a mood that I love, but these photos were taken at mid-day or on overcast days....and i thought: maybe these are good candidates for some kind of artistic "embellishment".


In my next few posts, I'll share some of these shots that I decided to upload as textured. What do you think, Flickr friends? Like? Not like? Feedback is welcome.


Enfin j'ai eu un moment pour essayer quelquechose dont j'avais envie il y a longtemps. Plusieurs de mes photos d'Europe m'attendaient passiament pour leur 'traitement texture'. Pendant les vacances de Noel j'ai eu un moment pour vous verez le resultat cette semaine. Voici la deuxieme photo de la serie. L premiere est si-dessous. Qu'en pensez-vous?? Est-ce que je me perd un peu trop dans cette 'fievre de texture sur Flickr' ou non?? ;0)


Thanks to SkeletalMess for the texture:
