Lately I’ve been meddling in saturation – enhancing the colors in many of my photographs with, on average, fairly positive results. I’ve learned many photographs don’t need saturation, since their original quality has a certain charm to it. Photographs such as Charlemagne: Notre Dame de Paris or The Blazing Hues already embody their own personality and don’t really need any enhancement.
After finding my way around iMovie and getting a feel for things, I’ve decided to undergo a compilation project of all (or at least, a vast majority) of the photographs and footage I captured while in France. Here’s two of the photographs I’ll probably be using for the project – a beautiful view from atop the Mont Saint Michel.
When I went to France last October we hit all the tourist destinations in Paris – including the Mont Saint Michel. This “Mount Saint Michael” is quite the tourist hotspot and you may find a plethora of shops and vendors around the premises, as well as historical guides… for a price. Now how does this relate to wildlife? While there, a companion of mine happened upon a ladybug – and *SNAP!* we have the picture below – the French LadyBug of Mont Saint Michel.
While in Normandy, France I had the chance to take many pictures of the Mont Saint Michel, many of which are of it’s interiors – long, winding, and shadowy corridors that seem to go on and on forever.
