Spiderweb Bokeh

August 05, 2011
Linking up with Hallie Westcott for 50mm Friday.I’m always in awe of other people’s spiderweb photos, but never seem to run into them myself…that is until the other day on my way to lunch. Thank goodness I carry  my camera with me everywhere because I was quickly able to snap this shot. Not only did I capture the spider, his victim and his web…but I also captured that beautiful, bright bokeh! I applied Kim Klassen’s latest Magic Texture pack in post-processing. By the way, our niece will be visiting us for the weekend. I will still have Scavenger Hunt...

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

July 03, 2011
Happy 4th of July Weekend! This has been another great week for my creativity – once you scroll down, you’ll quickly know what I’m talking about. By the way, it appears as if Google Reader is on the fritz today. I only had 35 blogs in my reader this morning (compared to the normal 200+). It usually corrects itself but I apologize for any delay in visiting your blogs. This is also a great week for you. You’ll remember that last week I told you about Kat’s (from The Kat Eye View of the World) upcoming introductory class: Find Your Eye: Starting the Journey. This...

As if a summer day in North Carolina wasn’t hot enough, a summer day without air conditioning is for the birds!UPDATE: I should probably have updated this post before going to bed last night. Our AC was fixed yesterday afternoon for the low price of $300. From what I understand, it could have been a lot worse, so I’m thankful ...

Beautiful

June 24, 2011
Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” I took this shot a couple of weeks ago and finally processed it this week. I keep staring at it because I think it’s so beautiful (I’m really loving the combination of texture and use of Pixel Bender), but I have no idea what to say beyond that. I guess this is one of those times that I shouldn’t say anything at all. Have a wonderful weekend!
