JUBILATION (two different crops)
"Jubilation" is the photo for today probably as much for its title as for all the bright colors. To say I'm jubilant is to put it midly. It turns out my terrible internet slow down problem was related to my ISP after all. I needed a new modem! Now I have time to deal with the rest of my poor old system's issues (more RAM and upgraded OS), so I'll have time to save for a totally new system. I really could throw a big party I'm so relieved.
As to this picture, I took it about 3-1/2 years ago at the French Festival. There were lots of colorful booths, with endless unique wares for sale and mouthwatering food. I was very new to taking photos and the friend who brought me managed to be patient as I snapped away at every turn. Very few of the photos I took worked out, mostly due to the brilliant sunlight and my total inexperience. Even this one I don't consider all that "successful" but I love the colors and light. I don't have the original anymore, or I'd revert to it and see what I could do with it now.
P.S. A couple hours after posting this: I came up with this crop of the above which I may like better as it brings out that mirror a bit more. It's also a little less static visually. But I'll have to let it "cool" for a while to be sure:
