Another Reitdiephaven visit. This is a blend of two images. One base expose, one for the highlights and reflection in the water. Edited in Photoshop, Lightroom and Nik Software. Post processing inspired by Mike Kelley and Elia Locardi (fstoppers tuto’s). Next week I’ll edit some again. Shot enough through golden and blue hour.
A loving reminder to anyone reading this and especially my Portland people or people in similarly hot cities:
Today is 101 degrees. People are once again going to start dying of exposure, this time of heat exposure, sun stroke, dehydration, and a host of other completely avoidable complications.
Please hold compassion in your heart for those in our human family who are not fortunate enough to have safe cool spaces with clean water or hygiene facilities to retreat to. I 100% promise you that their goal is to survive, they are not trying to hurt you, as scary as you may find them and as foreign as their lives may be to you.
If you can afford to carry extra water bottles with you, wipes, sanitiser, or treat someone to a cool treat or access to a rest room, what you are doing is HUGE. If you can offer them access to trash to help them keep the few spaces they have cleaner, that is HUGE.
People are going to die this summer but we can minimise the impact of the heat and the city’s indifference if we remember that we are family. your life is as precious to me as mine is.
Hi guys! Recently I found a few Instagram accounts reposting my fanart from here (tumblr) without my permission, and if you guys know/see any Tumblr users that are obviously stealing (reposting/editing) my stuff please let me know, shoot me a message, because I can’t wait to block them forever!
