My Sunday Photo – May 21st, 2017.

bright colour 1 2

Giraffe is one of Freya’s favourite restaurants – although not just for the food.

She is obsessed with the mirror at the top of the stairs and loves nothing better than prancing in front of it like she’s a prima ballerina. This results in approximately 500 trips to the toilets, which are upstairs, throughout the meal. Obviously we don’t want to discourage her from going but, at the same time, we know that nine times out of 10 it will just be so she can see herself in the mirror.

I’ve got to give her credit for taste, it does look rather grand. I couldn’t resist snapping this on my iPhone while she had a little dance (we were waiting for the food to arrive at this point).

Giraffe is so brightly decorated – which is, I think, another reason it appeals to Freya – that I decided to take all the colour out of the photo and just leave her. I still don’t have a proper editor (it’s an extra cost I can’t justify for a hobby at the mo) but I love having a tinker with Fotor’s free elements – coloursplash being one of them. It’s not perfect (I’d like to soften the colour of her face) but I had fun playing. I hope you like it too.

As usual I’ve linked up with #MySundayPhoto. Please click on the camera below to see what other people have been snapping this week.

Wishing you a happy Sunday.

  1. Superb editing! In fact I wouldn’t guess this was taken in a Giraffe at all. Selective colour can be usch a useful feature and you’ve used it very well in this shot to bring out Freya.

    1. It’s brilliant. If you pay there are coloursplash options too but the free one works fine for me. It’s in “effect” near the bottom.

  2. I love this photo so much, the mirror – its grandeur but also your gorgeous little ballerina. I think like her I would go to the toilet 10x but to photograph it! Great snap on your phone and editing. Its very cool #MySundayPhoto

    1. Thank you, that’s very kind of you to say so. It is a great mirror, I can totally see why she likes it (I just wish she’d wait until we’d finished eating for a visit). Hehe.

  3. It’s a brilliant photo and I love what you’ve done with the editing! I’ll have to check out Fotor. I use Picmonkey, but couldn’t find a coloursplash option on there and I really want to give it a go.
