Flip Flop Edit - #5

I'm very excited to be posting a new edit!  Amy from Flip Flop Edits provided the picture of this beautiful lady that is expecting.  For my edit I first cropped to highlight baby bump.  Next, I ran a sharpen layer and a layer adjustment.  I then added a vignette and enhanced her eyes.  Finally I added a layer and painted on softness around this mom-to-be.

First Sign of Spring?

I was in my backyard and saw this flower in bloom.  I had to pull out my phone and double check my calendar... yep it's still January.  I decided to take a photo and then crop it down to showcase the ruffle in the center and the sparkles in the leaves.

Moon Shot

Shoot the Moon is the assignment for Kent Weakley's night photography e-class this week.  I was starting to feel like this was more like a moon shot!  All day long the clouds were rollin' in and it was grey and yucky and the sun was covered up.  About the time I was leaving for the park the clouds started to clear, I was feeling pretty good.  We get to the park and the moon is hidden : ( We waited and finally saw the moon.  I got two shots and the clouds covered the moon back up for the next hour.  

My Routine-M4H project 52

Our routine consists of washing the dishes nightly.  Our dish washer broke several months ago and we have not replaced it yet.  Itty Bitty is busy washing our many Tervis Tumblers.

Sweet Shot Tuesday-Blue Hour in my City

Blue Hour in my City

I am participating in Kent Weakley's Night Photography class.  Our assignment is to take a photo during the magical hour known as the blue hour.  I decided to drag my husband and children "across the river" tonight to accompany me on my trek.  This is what I ended up with... a stunning photo of the city and its lights.

Sweet Shot Tuesday- I "Heart" Sapporo

I was enjoying a nice sushi lunch with the family and decided to order a Sapporo.  After I took a couple of sips of my drink I realized that the suds/bubbles made repeating hearts around the entire rim of my glass.  Thankfully I had my trusty camera ready to go and capture this.

Project 52

The first week's photo challenge in Project 52 on flickr is titled "alive".  This doggie (a toy poodle) is definitely alive and crazy, she spends her days running around crazy, putting the fear into squirrels, and playing with the kids.  I can't believe that I got her to sit still for a fraction of a second.  Happy New Year!!
