We all know that lovely adage. When life gives you lemons make lemonade. Well, a lovely young Southern lady named JoAnn Anderson took this a step further. On a rainy day in Georgia in the summer of 2012, she captured this image of red shoes crossing the street beneath a cheery ruby umbrella. Why not turn that rain into pink lemonade via Photoshop? So that’s what she did, using a combination of Photoshop edits in Vibrance, Saturation, Shadows/Highlights, Sharpen, HDR – Photorealistic and then used pixlr-o-matic to add vintage filters to it using another combination of Effects (Hagrid) and Overlays (Rain). The result: this lovely image which we decided to share on this rainy day in May when the South is getting a dose of Blackberry Winter. To see more of Anderson’s stunning work, check out her website Sidewalk Chic, and follow her on Twitter. Here’s the full image for your rainy day viewing pleasure.
