#sundaybluesedit Sunday Selection @butterflyblue
Rebecca: Every Sunday I see a variety of interpretations of “blue” in my #sundayblueedit tag on Instagram, which averages about 300 images. Almost since the birth of the tag I’ve had the pleasure of viewing the work of Glenda @butterflyblue. Through Glenda, I’ve been able to see another side of the world that I may never have the opportunity to see any other way. She brings the beaches near her home in Australia every day to my tiny phone. Her incredible, unending, vision of this place always thrills me. Each image brings a new mood and a new vision. I chose this image from last Sunday for its cool blue tones and the chill it seems to carry in the air.
Glenda: I have always taken photos, although not as many as I do now. I live in a very beautiful place on the east coast of Australia called Byron Bay and teach visual arts and photography to high school students 12 – 18 years old. I walk my dog every day along the beaches where I live. With iPhone in hand, everyday beach life takes on a new realm of creativity for me. I also use my cameras occasionally as well but I am more interested in different creative aspects of image enhancement. Images that conjure the beautiful and mysterious qualities of the imagination that can come from using a variety of apps and techniques.
I have been involved in posting images to share for a year now and it has become an enjoyable creative outlet. I have met (virtually) many people who share the passion of photography. Instagram is learning and supportive environment and it is wonderful to experience the many facets of this social phenomenon.
This image is showing a more complex view of my environment. We had very big seas and stormy weather, which eroded most of the beach. The overlaying of images increases the mood and gives the viewer more to interpret, unlock a story or perhaps a dream.
