Farmacia


Farmacia, originally uploaded by southiejason.

We never stopped in any of these farmacias, but they seemed to be ubiquitous throughout each of the major cities we hit.

Originally, I took this picture in B&W, but it appeared much too dark. I added a sepia filter effect using Picasa (Google's very cool free downloadable photo organizing and editing software), and ended up with this. I try not to add too many effects to my photos, but digital darkrooms are amazing and can truly turn lemons into lemonade.

I thought this blog was supposed to be about me today? I'm very disappointed.

that pic is cool. i wonder what would happen with one of those effects where there is color introduced in one aspect...like just the sign itself?
