Having fun using different processing over my photos. I love photo booth eventhough the photos appears noisy.
Enjoy scrolling down.
Team Rocket is up to no good, you can just tell by the looks on their faces.
The Pokémon event, which was held for the release of the Black & White games, was held earlier in March and in colder weather. It was also a very overcast day which was much different than the other events.

We had high hopes as we set out from Mariposa last Saturday morning at 6:30 AM. We knew we would miss the sunrise, but as it was pouring down snow when we took off, we thought we would be able to catch the park just as the storm was clearing.
As we drove through Fish Camp, we passed several drivers who were crazy enough to try that drive without chains, and someone spun out and crashed directly in front of us. The snow had just stopped, and everything was pure white in all directions. But as we pulled into the Ranger check point, my heart sank as we were told that the road was closed over Badger Pass as the plows couldn’t keep up with the deep snow at the higher elevations. They had no estimate on when they would re-open the road.
Hoping for the best, we drove on. We stopped at the Wawona Hotel, and I shot like a maniac as we waited for the road to open. And waited…and waited…
But it never opened. We finally gave up around noon, and drove alllll the way back down through Oakhurst to highway 140 and tried it again. I knew we had just missed the park with what could have been the most pristine conditions of the year, but better late than never. Quite a bit of snow had already melted away from the valley floor, but I was relieved that there still seemed to be plenty of snow left on the shady side of the park as we finally made it up to the tunnel view by 2:30 PM.
And as I was taking these shots, I glanced back in time to see a huge line of cars coming up Hwy 41 through the tunnel. Doh! The moral of the story? The early bird gets to waste six hours trying to get into the park because he was stupid enough to take Hwy 41 when it was snowing.
Having got that off my chest, I should point out that I went with black and white with this shot as the valley was already nearly black and white as I shot this. The sun had been out all morning, but was now hidden behind the clouds as another round of snow showers was moving in behind us. This also gave me an opportunity to try out Nik Silver Effects Pro for the first time.
