My 1st “PhotoShop”: Before and After — See What You Think.

by Anura Guruge


As I proudly point out daily in my “The Picture of the Day” post, I do NOT believe in post-processing (i.e., ‘Photoshopping’).

To I, the pleasure and challenge of taking pictures is to capture what I can to the best of what I can — given the equipment I am using. It is like my running. It is test of my abilities. A discipline. Altering reality after the event has NO appeal to I — since that is not what real-life is all about.

Anywho … I have a friend who urges me incessantly that I should Photoshop — as he does with all of his pictures. Actually I have two friends like this, though the other does not ‘urge’ me to do as he does.

Well, I took this picture (i.e., the ‘Before’) yesterday, at the ‘Wolfeboro Inn‘, at a breakfast meeting. It was the simple table arrangement and the white/gray is the table cloth. It was a round table and there was probably 10 people seated around it — including my ‘Photoshop friend’. I too the picture with my Google Pixel 2 and I don’t think anybody even noticed. I liked it. I was THRILLED with it. To I, it could not be bettered.

But, for the heck of it I asked my friend to Photoshop it. He did so, GLADLY, in seconds.

Well, I knew I could better him — though I do NOT have ‘Photoshop’ or even an equivalent since I don’t need them — and will not use them. So instead, I used Photoshop.

What do YOU think? I hope YOU like my ‘Photoshop’ better. {Smile}

The BEFORE.

The original taken by I.


The AFTER (i.e., Photoshopped) by my friend.

These were his comments: “Here is my Photoshop modifications.  Your flower was dark around the center and brighter around the outdside.  I much brightened the center and increased contrast there. See if you think it is an improvement.”


MY AFTER. “Photoshopped” in Powerpoint.


I really hope YOU like my AFTER.

Good news, I do NOT plan to do anymore photoshopping. This was enough.

The AMAZING “Creative Tablescapes” Show In Wolfeboro, NH This Weekend.

Beyond brilliant!

Some just outright breathtaking.

My pictures do NOT do this exhibition the justice it deserves. I was in a hurry and there were other milling around and some of you know I like to take pictures such as this without people cluttering the scene.

I lucked out. Total serendipity. Though it was supposedly in the paper, I had not heard of it. I had a breakfast meeting at the ‘Wolfeboro Inn‘ on Friday. This exhibition was downstairs and they talked about it at our meeting — partly because the exhibition had usurped our normal room.

I kind of had a hunch that this would be a good place to get some pictures and handed over my $5 once I was assured that I can take as many pictures as I wanted — provided I did not touch. I am used to those instructions.

I am so glad I went — though I was supposed to meet some other folks straight after the meeting.

To say that I HIGHLY recommend this show would be the understatement of the day.

If you are within 35-miles of Wolfeboro (NH) this weekend you should make a point of going to see this wonderful show. It will be the best $5 you spend all weekend.

NO Wolfeboro, N.H. ‘First Night’ For 2017 (i.e., December 31, 2016) — OFFICIAL.

by Anura Guruge

It is OFFICIAL. I called up and checked with the “Wolfeboro Area Chamber of Commerce“.

Wolfeboro First Night“, which was so much a part of the Lakes Region scene, for 20-years is NO MORE — and has NOT been since 2014. Shame. Pity.

Yes, there will be town-sponsored fireworks, on the ‘docks’, at 6:30pm (which is WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY too early)!

Some Town Officials are hoping to do ‘something’ in the “Great Hall” of the “Town Hall” building. Details to follow.

Last year the “Wolfeboro Inn” did a ‘gala’. Not so this year.

Shame. A pity. We used to love First Night at Wolfeboro. Will have to make other plans. {SMILE}.

Teischan is standing, RIGHTMOST, in the bag (at the back) waiting to skip out.

Teischan is the furthest RIGHT.

Teischan is the LAST one at the back.

You can’t hardly see Teischan. She is right at the back to the RIGHT. You can just see her left cheek.


We plan to get some better pictures when we attend the Wolfeboro
performance given that my Canon Rebel T3i, set at ISO 6400,
can take some decent shots without a flash

Teischan, in #2 t0 #4 above, took part as a Bon-Bon (as she also did last year) in both the Saturday and Sunday performances at Oyster River High School. Though we, of course, shuttled her their and back we did not attend either of those two performances. We go to one of the Wolfeboro performances because we consider that the ‘Home Game‘. So I only got to take pictures after the show. The very striking lady above is ‘Karen’, Teischan’s ballet teacher. She is also the one that you see, seated on the floor, in the ‘thumbnail’ image shown next to the links. I gather she used to be a talented and famous ballerina. I do not know her very well. But she kindly allowed me to take this picture. The two other girls above WANTED their picture taken and I was happy to oblige. They are so pumped after the show. Great stuff.

Well yesterday while Teischan was performing in Durham I bought tickets for all of us to go the ‘Nutcracker’ in Boston by the Boston Ballet. I will do a separate post on that. This is the funny thing about being in a show such as the ‘Nutcracker’ with such a large cast and umpteen acts. Teischan has never got to see the entire stage play. She just gets to see the act before the ‘Bon-Bons’ and the start of the one that follows. So she has only seen the entire show on DVD. Now she will get to see it, on a rather grand scale, on the stage.

I took in excess of 70 pictures of the parade, independent of the Clearlakes Chorale caroling ahead of the parade. I have all the pictures of the parade in two forms below: as an automated YouTube slideshow (video) with music or as a gallery. You take your pick. The YouTube slideshow is fun. You can, of course, look at BOTH. Enjoy.
