gone Flickring

So I used to have a Flickr account. But then I deleted it, because I wasn't happy that people could only see 1024x768 max resolution. Okay, I relent. And now that I found out that the originals are still stored on the server when you have Flickr free and can be accessed if you upgrade to Flickr Pro. Okey dokey. And I reasoned that I like the photostream idea better. I don't have to group pictures into blog posts this way. So, yeah, consider this abandoned until I post again. You can check out my Flickr if you want.

This is a barn in Lostine. I don't know whose it is or anything else about it... it just turned out to be fairly photogenic.

This second picture looks somewhat like something I'd see in a local gallery or something. Of course, you'd need to up the image quality to SLR range and maybe make the composition a bit more dynamic. Anyway, just my thoughts.

Oh, by the way, these are from around mid-June.

This is the local Presbyterian church. I have had my PowerShot set on Vivid colors for a while now, but I don't think it's working out. It's more likely to give me colors that are just... gaudy. I wanted to get some pop and make my photos look more real. But like I just said, it's not working out. So, I'm switching to using no color control or Neutral. The above photos were taken with Vivid on, I believe, but I used Picasa to desaturate them somewhat, giving them a sort of faded look, much more appealing to me. Also, maybe I was just trying to fool myself into the effect, but with more subtle coloring, it seems easier to focus on the crossing shapes in the second photo.
