Saturated | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

This week new photo challenge at WordPress is about anything Saturated – http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/09/27/photo-challenge-saturated/
I should be ever so happy to talk about my world in colors.

This  is a park I often go to for long walks two miles or more. The park is very green, luscious and full of flowers. Can I leave well enough alone, YES, nature is beautiful just as it is and needs no correction. I don’t ever see this park in an orange sunset or a silver moonlight, I see it in the morning light only.  During my walks, I enjoy imagining how it would look in different times of day and in a totally different texture. The question is always: What if?

What if I see nature in different colors? What if the park was an abstract painting, I am sure nobody would question purple leaves or purple ground. The eyes of an artist see things in his/her perspective and manage to convey new emotions not yet felt.
Well, I know my passions and limitations and even though I can take great photos,  I know I will never become the greatest photographer on earth. I don’t get up at 2:00 am to go catch the right light at sunrise, because often I go to bed at 2:00 am and I don’t stand on the top of 100th floor building to get the right depth of field, because I fear height. With these limitations, just to name a few, I can only be the greatest manipulator of colors. I can do that very well and Photoshop is my friend.
These are my attempts to change nature according to my eyes. Now, I have found a new thing to do and I will turn these photos into prints.

This takes me to another thought. The ability to see things in a different light is also the ability to make and welcome  changes.  What do you see differently in your life that other people don’t?  I am curious. Post it here, we will make a party. Ciao,
Valentina
