Up in the Air

Another multiple-meme posts, but this one will center on Foto Friday's prompt, "In the Air". Here are my choice of images to share:

Up in the Air

This was a picture I took during my last flight - from Tagbilaran to Manila - August of 2011. Whenever I travel by air, I always try to get the window seat, but of course, there were times I won't get what I want. The times I did, I really try to take as much pictures because my travels were just domestic - I only had an hour or so to take pictures looking down on earth.

Since I am linking to some memes that should feature images taken from the past week, let me now share images from a few days ago, still keeping up with the theme:

Jump Rope

Sister using the jump rope last Tuesday (24 January 2012). We only have one rope, so we took turns in using it, and since I took my camera, I busied myself taking her pictures. Using the rope can be a quick thing to do - so to take this image, I set my camera to multiple shots; once my sister started jumping, I clicked the shutter and didn't let go of it until I was sure I got my shot. Four succeeding images with my sister's feet up in the air, this was the highest jump of all the images I took.

The day before that (23 January 2012), the family went to Quezon Memorial Circle to enjoy some family time, and because we love doing jump shots, we surely didn't let the day pass without doing some...

Jump Jump

That's me and my sister. Personally, I didn't like the surface - it didn't seem to show how high the jump was (maybe because of the floor's decoration), but I am glad I can now jump higher and I can do a different pose. Before, I could only do what my sister (right image) do - now, I can experiment more. Just yesterday, I scoured Flickr for jump shots and took note of the poses I hope to do in the future. I sure can't fly, but I can certainly be up in the air. :)

Linking these images to Misty's "Shoot. Edit. Submit" - all these images weren't the SOOC shot. Editing each images:
  • First Image - Cropped out the plane's window; gave it a pass of the burn tool to deepen the colors of the water.
  • Second Image - Ran the "Summer Heat" action, giving the image a slightly orange tone.
  • Third and Fourth Images - Gave it a pass of the "National Geographic" script.
