The Louvre in Paris

Photos From Around the World

I thought, since it is New Years Eve, I would post a photo gallery of shots from some of the places I’ve been around the world. Sort of a “Best of” gallery from previous posts. I’ve been only blogging since August, so I have yet to post shots from everywhere I’ve been. And, I have yet to even start posting video from all of these places. That is what 2014 is for. Resolution 🙂

The world is a big, beautiful place, filled with interesting people, amazing sights, random coincidences and occasional tender mercies. I have been blessed to travel. I have been blessed to make friends on every continent. I hope to keep the friends I have made and make more as time goes by. However, my greatest blessings are found at home, with a warm fire, a good meal and my family, who love me.

I hope you enjoy the photographs. Happy New Year.

    1. Thanks for your comments. I appreciate that you don’t like the stylized approach to this photograph. It is an HDR or High Dynamic Range photo. It is a stylistic choice. Not everyone likes this technique. It tends toward surrealism. And, as you observed with the “Paint” marks, the tonal compression tends toward graininess and over saturation. Nevertheless, the Louvre is an iconic Parisian landmark. I wanted to look at this landmark in a different way, more of a surreal approach, so, I felt this technique accomplished this objective. Again, I appreciate your critique. Your thoughts and comments are welcome.
