I took this photograph yesterday whilst walking along the canal to collect my car from having some work done at a local garage (MoT for those of you familiar with the British system).
It was a lovely cool, still evening.
I returned home & simply made a small adjustment to the original, enhancing some colours slightly & this photo was the result.
The original is, in my opinion, pretty good. The one that has been enhanced looks a bit more spectacular; a bit more intense; a bit less real … but not much.
I was reminded how often I’m tempted to enhance something; a memory, a situation, an event, a story, so that it looks better than the original.
The problem is that if I do that often enough I am building a paper world that can all too quickly collapse, leaving rubble, fallout & heartache.
Take care until next time …
Oh! In case you wanted to see the original photograph, here it is …
