To tell the truth, I hadn’t taken many new photos in 2020. Something to do with travel restrictions, lockdown and mortal fear of venturing out. But really, I’ve never been motivated to do landscape and nature photography. Street and people is more my thing and well, you know.
However, I did discover a new way of making photos. Graphic design tools like Nexmuse, Adobe Spark and Canva allowed me to re-invent old photos. Along the way, I’ve discovered old memories and created new visual stories.
This is one of my favorite graphic images. I’ve always loved this particular street portrait but it’s been revitalized by making it graphic with Nexmuse and enhancing the colors with Lightroom.
Postcards from the Past
The last time I was in Paris … I didn’t send a postcard. Using Canva I made up for it by creating a visual story of a remembered street scene.
Long before my ‘proper’ camera, I had a Kodak Instamatic and photos were printed from film. The dusty prints hardly survived the ravages of time. Although, I wonder if they were ever in focus. No matter. Formatted with Adobe Spark, I re-purposed the pictures and recalled some fond memories.
Longed for the Beach
And then of course, there were those photos that reminded me of the places I wanted to be.
