Week #12 for Roger's Creative Photography Contest...click on the banner above if you want to learn more and enter or just feel like sliding around the Bloggosphere and checking out some really fantastic photos...

ALL PHOTOS CAN BE ENLARGED...

Back to Colorado and our trip in 1983...This is Redstone, CO, a small town located along the Crystal River.

Would be interesting to go back in the spring and see how active this waterfall becomes.

We took the original (below) and added some saturation and tweaked the hue a tad.

Hope you like it....



And the original...




Aerosmith has always been one of my fav bands...especially the early stuff. This is from the Toys In The Attic album - digitized from the original vinyl - "You See Me Crying"

  6. Congrats Vin. And y'know....I actually like the original a little better. I am such a natural lkinda guy. Cheers!!

     
  7. Dianne Says:
  8. It would be something to be there in the spring! I imagine the rushing water would be quite a sight.

    Great shot you skinny thing you!

     
  9. Sandee Says:

  13. Bond Says:
  14. DANA: Thanks...it is getting easier

    ROGER: Thanks Roger...who do I send the bribes to? LOL

    MATT-MAN: Natural-born woman you are!

    DIANNE: I think it would be awesome...thanks...not skinny yet!

    SANDEE: Maybe I should not have changed it! LOL

     
  15. Anndi Says:
  16. I had my own version of listening to a waterfall lately.

    Cool tuneage!

    Um.. where are the stats on tobacco cessation?

     
  17. Jeff B Says:
  18. Way to go on shedding the pounds and body fat. The tunage was a great blast form the past too.

     
  19. Bond Says:
  20. ANNDI: But we would prefer to not share your 'waterfall'

    Hope you are feeling better

    Those stats will occur at a later date

    JEFF: Thanks and glad you enjoyed.

     
  21. Fred Says:
  22. Wow...someone who is losing weight the smart way - slowly. Congrats.

    I'm a yo-yo dieter. When my pants get too tight, I lose 20 pounds, then eat whatever I want until I do it all over again.

     
  23. Can't do better than Steve & Joe! And a New England band as well...Great photo!

     
  24. Ralph Says:
  25. This has the look of the cascading water that froze in place one winter.

    Lots of great shots in the Rockies, you keep finding shot after shot...

     
  26. Kimmie Says:
  27. Hey Bond!
    Wow, keep up the good work buddy! Those are some great stats. :-)

    I think your Creative Photo shot this week is wonderful! I like the effects you gave it. It gives it a very subtle pop of color.

    Good Luck and thanks for stopping by for a visit! :-)

    Hugs,
    Kimmie

     
  28. Your photos are such a pleasure! I'll bet it is something to see the waterfall in the spring.

    Congratulations on your weight-loss progress. Almost 3% body fat in a month is impressive!

    Aerosmith - now THERE is a trip down memory lane!

    You know this is the first time I've really studied your pics on the couch - your part has kind of migrated around over the years. I find that rather quirky!

     
  29. Bond Says:
  30. FRED: Yup I have done that too...but I am into the working out each day so...

    BUD: Well, we can't blame them for where they grew up! LOL

    RALPH: That is what attracted my attention...this 'frozen in time' moment

    KIMMIE: Thanks so much my friend.
    HUGS

    ADR: Thank you so much (you should be a judge LOL) Love Aerosmith
    It not only has migrated over the years, it does so on a weekly basis!

     
  31. Nice work on the fat loss, Vinny. Keep up the hard work!

    That waterfall looks like a frozen waterfall. I like the way you enhanced the color.

     
  32. Linda Says:
  33. First off, good job on the weight loss. I think I found the pounds you lost so if you ever want them back, let me know!

    Second, I really like the way that the rocks look red in the first party - the editing makes the colors so much more vibrant.

    Good luck this week!

     
  34. Gattina Says:
  35. The little addition to the original looks great !

     
  36. Patti Says:
  37. Kudos on the fat loss. Me, I'm on a seafood diet. I see food, I eat it. Hardy har.

    This is another great shot from Colorado...trying to decide if I prefer the original or the enhanced version.

     
  38. Very nice entry Vin...

     
  39. Travis Says:
  40. Congrats on the weight loss. It also looks like you're converting some of that to muscle.
