Remember

Remember our word of March?
Don’t worry if you forgot.
It was Projects.
Projects tend to have a deadline, and I talked about that one as well, especially since I missed that deadline. Now deadlines are nothing more as a line in the sand, a date to work to. Critical. But not the most important. What is even more important for a project is the actual deliverable.
The finished product.
The creative outcome.
The final image.

Even if you missed a deadline, pushing forward to get to that final outcome can be great fun and achieving the deliverable is normally a great reward in itself even if the deadline has long time passed.

And here we are, in the beginning of May.
Not wrapping up one word, but actually, two words before we get the new one out next week. I still have a story to publish on Projects and Maelick, Stefan and myself have to get our travel submission completed.
And then we have our new word as well.

Ahh, the hectic rush of good old deadlines.

So let me share my PS story with you:

We find Mr. Gilles on a most mysterious planet exploring the most curious fauna. What is Mr. Gilles looking for? Or was it Mr. Gill? Time will tell in this epic story of late here on SiP.
Look, Mr. Gilles. A local. Maybe he can tell us on which beautiful planet we landed. A cliffhanger in the making …
Awesome. We got this magic umbrella from Lord Escargot to protect us against the spring showers here on PS (Planet Spring). Awesome. Although I am not really sure it is working as designed, Mr. Gill.

A simple story of three.
I knew when I posted the word of March, and the corresponding challenge that I wanted to do something with Mr. Gill and Mr. Gilles (the actors).
I have something with “twins” and I knew I wanted to combine some of my previous themes into this little project and wanted to shoot the raining umbrella again. A long-running project without a real deadline. More like a theme. And so I knew my final image. Given that winter was leaving and spring was upon us (the spring equinox was on March 20th), fresh green colors and spring feelings pushed me in this little story where two eternal space travelers land on a green planet after being in their white cold spaceship throughout the cold winter and enjoy the fresh greenery. Lord Escargot gave them the Umbrella and discloses they are on Planet Spring (the added challenge I had no clue on how to include it).

So mission completed.

Next.
B.

PS. I just noted in Lightroom that I actually took 379 images to get these 3 published. But that is a different post.

    1. That are for sure two posts 🙂

      One on PS (Photoshop) focus stacking and one on waste 🙂
      Not all 379 made it into these three and I have quite a few “alternative photos” with different angles of the story that did not play out.
