Photo du Jour - Tagus River
The original slide for this digital image was taken in Lisbon, Portugal. I did some serious cropping and manipulating with it in Photoshop. It's difficult to get a decent image out of a lot of our old slides, so I turn some of them "artsy" rather than trying to use the original picture. It's hard to believe that we used to wait weeks, sometimes months, before we'd even see the pictures we'd taken! (I do love my digital camera. Yes, I know I've mentioned that before.) Here's a link to the ACEO I've listed in my Etsy shop.
This is my scan of the original slide. Basically, I used the middle section of the slide for my digital image. The Tagus River has its origins in Spain. It flows west through Spain and Portugal, eventually reaching Lisbon where the river flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
