Bright colors!

Last week I started a  I started a GuruShots account. GuruShots.com is a photography game, they say. It’s free, but if you want to get ahead, you have to buy swaps, fills and keys. Good quality of your photos does not mean that you end up high. It is determined by votes. Seems very fair, but the system determines whether or not your photo is seen. Only than people can vote for your foto. To be seen you need swaps, fills and keys. And then we are back at the begining of this post.

Fine way to earn money for GuruShots. It again shows that nothing on the internet is free.

Positive about starting that account was that I looked op a lot of old photos. The challenges were about colors, bright colors. So here some of the bright colored shots I entered.

Chrysanthemum

This Chrysanthemum I bought last week at De Plantage, a florist in our village. The intention was to take photos of it that day. A group of photos of a flower. Things did not go as planned that day. Therefore today in the second chance. Sharing 1 flower, 6 photos.

Promotion videos

Today I made a number of promotional videos for my website. For me it was practice to see what is possible with Ripl. That is software that was initially only to be used on a mobile phone and the like. I had tried that before, but I found it inconvenient to always copy pictures to my phone. Now it can also be done on the PC. Very nicel, because there you have all the photos available.

I have taken a subscription (which you stop any day) on the pro version. At first it was disappointing. I thought: “is this all there is”. But I had not yet discovered all the options. There is a lot and it is very user-friendly. If you also want to try it, that’s free. It is also fun to play with. RIPL

Here under a number of test videos. I’d like to hear your thoughts about it. There is also sound. Lots of fun! 🙂

Red

Red, the color of warmth, love and Christmas. Fits well in the time of the year. Some new photos and some older ones.

Red!

Crab cactus

They bloom again! Late November and it is beautiful. I have three in three different colors. Red, white and salmon colored. Too bad they bloom such a short time. The rest of the year they will look a bit boring again. The salmon one had already withered after a week, so pictures of this plant were taken in November 2016. The red and the white still really try their best. These have flowers and buds in different stages. Fortunately, the photos remain.
So these are my crab cacti 🙂
