Crawling you may be right now
But hold your head up high
It’s really caterpillars that
Turn into butterflies

Greetings Friends!

Today marks a big day for this blog. I’ve been thinking of getting my own domain but have always been skeptical about it. After a lot of deliberation (which took me almost 3 years), I finally indulged myself and bought www.yousufbawany.com. Hallelujah!

This could not have been accomplished without your support (yes, I’m referring to you, dear followers/fellow bloggers). The love that you have extended to me over the past few years has helped me progress on this journey of self-discovery and I thank you for that from the bottom of my heart. Your kind words have helped push me to my creative limits and beyond and I truly appreciate that; I’ve realized that making people happy is what makes me happy, and this is just the beginning.

The metamorphosis is complete; I’m ready to fly.

Cheers,
Yousuf

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a nifty must-have tool for amateur and professional photographers alike. The versatility of options and ease of use makes it one of the best photo editing software available today. The best part of using Lightroom is that the more you explore, the more you discover.

The color toning and retouching features are exciting for people who want to add some oomph to their photos. I have loved this tool since I first discovered it and have been treating photos ever since. The photo above shows a original picture I took at Stratford Butterfly Farm in the UK; the two below have been retouched for a more dramatic look.

Enjoy!

This, right here, is undoubtedly one of my most favorite photographs and I think words are redundant to describe this piece. It was taken at Stratford Butterfly Farm at Stratford-upon-Avon, UK. Enjoy!
