Is that our Julieanne Kost?

Many of us who use Lightroom and Photoshop hold Julienne Kost in very high regard.  She’s a ‘Principal Digital Imaging Evangelist’ with Adobe, and, job title aside, she presents very understandable tutorials on a whole range of topics, from the very basic to the most advanced.  

So I was intrigued to see in the Guardian art and design section a series of photographs by ‘Californian artist Julienne Kost’, whose series Window Seat’ has been shot while travelling on business.  She says that, creatively frustrated by the environments she found herself in – hotels, convention centres, airports – she started taking photographs of landscapes from her plane seat.  You can see the work at: –  https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2017/jul/15/the-earth-in-plane-sight-in-pictures?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

I’m pretty certain that is indeed ‘our’ Julienne and emboldened, I’m sharing here a photograph I also took from my plane seat when I was bringing back a teddy bear for my granddaughter and was making a book about his journey for her.
