Since my last post, I am thinking humor. I have been working on my belly laughs and now I have my husband engaging as well. I will keep you posted. Like clock work the days fly by.. Time for Texture Tuesday at Kim Klassen’s beautiful site. We have some pretty, summer action, going on in our small back yard. Kim’s work gives me the incentive to keep trying..
I am participating this week for Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday. Out of the three textures that she gave us, I am using Edged 2.
Thank you Kim for these little gifts..
A few things that make me breathe a little easy and get creative with texture from Kim Klassen’s collection.
there’s a light at the end of the tunnel
i’ve been clearing the clutter away
it’s been such a painful experience
because the clutter wants to stay..
but this disease has got to go
it has been with me far too long
so it is time for clutter bug and i
to find something new to do
i already feel the freedom
and seeing a little light
as i say goodbye to clutter bug
because i want clutter out of my sight..
clears the air
revives the earth
from summer’s heat
hues of gold, yellow and brown
leaves that fall
and dance around
crispy apples, take a bite
like leaves under your feet..
bring out the sweaters
that wrap your arms
nice and cozy..
a cup of coffee or some tea
don’t forget about hot cider, and
of course a sweet spicy treat..
an autumn girl I am..
I decided to use one of Kim Klassen’s textures, that she provided for those of us, that joined her for Texture Tuesday’s. I had almost forgotten, about how much I enjoy using texture with my photos. I drift off into this creative mode and find it very relaxing and therapeutic as well. I will have to incorporate this back into my weekly photography regime, once again.
What’s cooking here today for Texture Tuesday..
And for Be Still 52…
Doing homework these days is really fun. I should have taken photography in high school..lol!
It’s Tuesday and time for Texture Tuesday. I am also using this for the Be Still 52 course. I started with my make shift photo studio. A large cardboard box and threw some burlap over it. For Be Still, this week, the highlight of our lesson was about sidelight. Kim suggested that we set up near a window. I purchased a small table a few days ago. I will be able to move it easily and follow the light in our home. I don’t have a lot of options, so I am working with what I have. Well, we have windows but some provide better lighting than others.
I have been experimenting lately, using props for still life. I am trying to use what I have on hand. I like small items, vintage, and just cute things. Participating in Kim Klassen’s Be Still 52, is helping me to make new discoveries about my camera. I have not ever been one to be studious and so I have not studied my user’s manual. It is about time. Penny is a character out of the movie The Toy Story. Somehow this little girl toy ended up with me. I like that she is a cowgirl and so this is what I came up with today. I have not arrived but am making a little progress, but because I like whimsical I thought that these images are cute. I have a few books about Dale Evan’s and Roy, so I included them as I practiced.
