Recently I attended my Marymount University reunion in Washington DC. I lived in the Washington DC for about 10 years and have been back for visits on many occasions. I decided to do a little sightseeing on Saturday to see the changes since my last visit. One thing that really stood out for me were all the barriers that have been constructed around some of the monuments and also around many of the government buildings. This is a sad reminder of the times that we live in.
Considering that the reunion was planned for mid October, I was hoping to catch some beautiful fall foliage and a reprieve from the hot and humid Florida temperatures that we have been experiencing. Not to be – temps ranged from mid 60’s to 80’s and the foliage was still very green. When things didn’t go exactly accordingly to my plans, I decided that perhaps Photoshop could help me out. Recently I learned about a filter in NIK called Indian Summer. I decided to give that a try to see if I could emulate the weather that I had wished for. The unsuspecting couple in the photo were appropriately dressed for fall so my edits did make sense. I’m afraid that the NIK plug in will have to be my fall substitute until I’m lucky enough to experience fall foliage first hand.
