Edited or Raw — which is better

It’s an ongoing argument between Bob and I about which is better — the original or an edited image. I think we have different goals. Bob wants to take the perfect picture of something beautiful. I want to tell a story and am willing to play with photos to get an effect. But you decide. Below are two pictures from the sunrise this morning. There was a mist in the background giving a lovely muted effect. The photo does not do justice to reality.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
