I was out walking recently during a hangover after a colleagues leaving do the night before. I needed to get out as my head pounded and my mouth was as dry as sand and the cool, rainy weather was very inviting. I headed across the river and took a shot of the skyline. I went again today and thought it would be a nice idea to take another one whilst the sun is shining. I wanted to blend the two together to give a ‘before and after’ style single shot.

The problem is, I am no good at this.

I can’t blend and struggle to layer, I tried for a good couple of hours today just playing around on PicMonkey, the editor I use for some of my images and I couldn’t get the hang of it. So instead I settled for this.

You can see from the company name on the building split in half by the images that this isn’t a perfect alignment, but I don’t mind. It is a way for me to monitor progress and see how and where to improve. I really want to keep playing with photos to create different effects as I believe it will really enhance my blog. I have a long way to go to develop but that’s okay. I love the feeling of improvement.

And it is nice to see the contrast between the skyline pics thanks to the weather. What a difference a couple of days make.

    1. Exactly! The weather reflects my moods and the weather whilst in those states. I like the contrast between the two 🙂

    1. It was worth it 🙂 I can’t sit inside whilst hungover, I need to be doing something, providing it isn’t too hot. Thankfully it wasn’t 🙂
