My self-imposed rules are simple enough but not necessarily easy to apply:
1) Only three posts per month. Yet to be achieved
2) There’s a two month stand down for previously featured bloggers. (Talk about making it hard on myself, I do have my favourites!) But so far so good.
3) For a post to feature on Freshly Seen it will have made me laugh, or cry or think – sometimes all three at once. Fully achieved, each and every time.
So this month on Freshly Seen let me introduce:
I’m already stretching the rules a bit because with this one you’re getting two for the price of one. Over on Photo 101 Rehab, a frequently flying scientist, Desleyjane, explains how she used Lightroom to transform an ordinary, you could say dull, image into something quite spectacular. While you’re there take a look at Lucile’s portraits, I’m fascinated by them.
As part of last week’s Cherished Blogfest Eileen shared a letter from Albert Einstein to her father. The object itself is fascinating, a letter signed by the brilliant man. Wow! And double wow!!
But it is the sentiments Einstein reveals that gave me pause for thought. The very same sentiments, that preoccupy so many of us now, some seventy years later.
Keeping with the science theme I’ve got going this month (photography’s as much a science as an art, right) and my recent preoccupation with the Kirk Sundial, Mathew Wright’s post all about Earth’s axial tilt landed in my inbox at just the right time.
Believe it or not, despite the erudite subject matter, there was a laugh or two along the way – to do with the planet after Saturn, you know the one.
There you have it folks, the three Freshly Seen posts, plus one extra, for this July. Check them out, I think they’re like brain food for bloggers but what do you think?
