How To Name An Image

So, you thought this was a how to…. Bah ha ha!  Just kidding.  I again am getting teased by husband for the names that I save my images.  Since I am not using harsh words, I can not name these images as they were intended.  You know what I am talking about.  Hubtastic the great said ya’all would think I was a little crazy if you knew the names I picked.  So, I thought I would give it a try.  I am betting you think I am perfectly normal.

Photo number One: Bloody Monday 

Can you see why? Of course you can.  Anyway….. as I was working the filters, I was awestruck by this little dandy.

Photo number Three: Number Two

The reason my numbering of photos is off, is due to the name of the photo…. Number Two.  Surely I can not name Photo number Two: Number Two.  It feels a little Austin Powers.  I chose Number Two because I thought I constructed this image, just the way I wanted.  So, I am mumbling “this is sooooo number one….. sooo number one…”  Well, I was wrong.  I started messing with yet another filter.  This one created this quasi fogginess that clings to the sun rays.  I love it.  It feels like a hot, humid hike.  You know, the one when you reach the precipice, your clothes sticking to your body, then you see this in front of you…. laid out like a buffet of awesomeness.

Photo number Four: Puff the Magic Dragon

It is all in the flower… That cute little puff.  The waterfall can be a little distracting at first, but once you deepen some tones…. Mmmmm.. You get this little puff the magic dragon.  I know some of you went right there…. bad bad.


Last, but not least, is lovely Photo number Five: The Squinty Lochness

Okay.  In my vision here, I imagine a luxurious apparition of a majestic body of water.  One nestled at the nape of the mountain.  You are so thirsty.  As you look up, the sun sneaks behind a cloud and right as the flash of light hits your eye, you catch a glimmer on the water below and a large movement. You already know what you saw, a water monster.  Because we all know they exist.  Hence, The Squinty Lochness.  🙂

That wraps up today’s lesson: How to name an image.  You just have to feel it.  Sometimes I feel that name all the way to my toes.  Then other times, I just make random noises and go with the predicted code from the camera ;).  Hope you enjoyed my little bit of fun here.

Catch you L8R
