What Comes After Before?

I came across Stacy’s blog through Monochrome Madness Challenge. It seems it all runs in circles, but I was lucky enough to jump into a good circle, with so many wonderful people. I joined her AfterBeforeFriday Forum around 7th or 8th week, but nevertheless I celebrate this one year anniversary with all my heart. Six months ago, we implemented One Focus Photo feature and it has been a huge success.

So, we have two anniversaries today – One year of ABF Friday and Six months of OFP. It is only fitting to mark it with one of Stacy’s photos. When I saw the photo, I knew it would be a monochrome version. Seems I am not alone, if you check the gallery on her blog, quite few of the participants went the same route.

Loré Dombaj ABF52 OPFI call this image “Low Winter Sun”, although I had no idea what season it really was. I was right, because the image was taken this February. Stacy presented us with quite a challenge, because of the contrast between those dark and light parts. It was hard to find a balance, but the monochrome just whispered to me in the right way. And naturally, I had to flip the image.

Please, hop to Stacy’s blog Visual Venturing and see how it’s really done.

I leave you with some of my favorite afters from the first year of AfterBeforeFriday and hope there are many more to come.

You registered on one year ago!
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!

I had no idea I was flying all this time!? I mean, my Puff the magic Dragon days are long gone, so I have no idea where they got that idea.

On a serious note, I want to thank all of you wonderful people who, for some strange reason, follow my crazy journey. I appreciate every visit, like, comment, even the bad ones (sorry for blocking you 😛 ). I know you probably stumbled on Snow’s Fissures and Fractures by mistake, but it’s too late. Now, you are stuck with me.

Hope this blogging thing sticks around, I really enjoy it.
