Hat with Peaches


Working in Photoshop CS6

My little netbook bit the dust.  Very sad. I am trying to put together something to post and hopefully figure out what the heck I am doing in Windows 7.  At the moment, am totally confused, however, in spite of that, I managed to get this far and post.  Hooray!

Oranges in Tissue with Old Spectacles

This morning I have been looking at old images (some taken using film and a Hasselblad) and this image  originally in color now is a digital bromoil.  The blur is intentional.What began as an image hunting expedition turned into a fun, image changing morning.  Now, I am looking forward to scanning and changing more of my older photographs.  Click to enlarge.  The spectacles will show up better when image is enlarged.

Currently I am constructing a new website and revamping my blogs.  It is time for a fresh start--a change in direction.  All things old will be made new.

Looking for Time

There are not enough hours in the day.  Making lists might be the way to go.

1.  Work on new website.
2.  Watch webinar repeat broadcasts.
3.  Read.
4.  Learn CS6 and Lightroom.

All of the above should keep me busy until next spring.

Raindrops on House Leeks

Company off and on all week.  Helen picked up the recliner; Marcia and Darrell stopped by for veggies.  Our garden is over flowing with produce.  Everyone, including me, loves the living room.  Letting go of the old is truly a freeing experience!

Instead of seeing life interrupting art, I am focusing on images as they spontaneously show up during each  day's routine, then clicking away.  (Simply a matter of turning things around and thinking differently.  Sometimes it is fun to put the cart before the horse.)

Last night it rained.  Some raindrops stayed on the House Leeks. 


Decided to crop this image into a square for symmetry and cohesiveness.  Years of using a Hasselblad may be why I like square format so much.  Steve Gosling mentioned this in his webinar presentation, "Photographing From the Heart."

Light and Mood

Experiment:   Sit and watch light move around a room.  Pay attention to colors and how the mood changes from moment to moment.
