Cloudy, but no Meatballs!
I've always thought it would be neat to create a book of photos for elementary students to use as writing prompts. Children have such amazing imaginations. They often think outside the box when looking at a photo. That's a good trait for a photographer. Sometimes, you need to be able to see beyond the picture you took to the picture it can become with a little tweaking.
This is a photo the sun in the clouds I took during the 2009 Thanksgiving break. The original snapshot was not this interesting. Using iPhoto I enhanced the picture, boosted the color and then turned it black and white. The result reminds me of wrinkled sheer curtains.
