Changing Seasons...photography and textures..

Fall is my favorite time of year...and it's beginning to look a like it will be here soon.  

These are a few photos of the sights in my neck of the woods...

This week I put out the bird feeders and got a visitor...

Just a quickie post of the sights of my week...

9/11/01, not forgotten...

Every year, I tried to create an image, art piece, or sketch to remember 9-11...

I Have Not Forgotten...

Photography, textures, and Photoshop...word prompts

Teaching myself how to navigate in Photoshop has been a challenge.  It's such a huge, complex piece of software that I doubt I will live long enough to ever master it.  I'll be happy if I can speed up my workflow by knowing where to go for what instead of looking in book.

 I've started to use word prompts to help myself work with a visual image that evokes either an emotion or a state of being. Maybe even a situation.  Like above, the photo was shot right before a storm. 

Last Days of Summer
 The above photo of a yellow daisy was not as fresh and perky that I typically like but summer is almost over.  It's that vesper time between summer and fall. 

Fey Ring
 The above's prompt was 'dreamy'...I like how it turned out. 

I was going for 'creepy'...I think I nailed it.  I don't think that creepy is my thang but I learned a lot with this image.  

Have a great day!!!
