*Note to self*–When you come upon a dodo skeleton take more than one photograph and if you must take only one photograph at the very least make it worthwhile. I am always learning my lessons the hard way. I actually am quite fond of the dodo and have read several books on the subject and their demise. One of the books I recommend if you are interested is The Return of the Crazy Bird. It baffles my mind why I would only take one very poor snapshot of a subject I have such an affinity for. I knew when I went to edit this I wasn’t going to be able to save much and it would have to be a more ‘artistic’ take. My vision was to try to mimic an old projector film still, something that might have been played in school in the late 70’s but was made in the 50’s. Anyone get that?
I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my ‘after’, you can view the ‘before’ here.
