Black and White Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday!

This handsome little fellow is my nephew, celebrating his sister’s 4th birthday along with Grampa.

Linking up with:

Scavenger Hunt Sunday – June 10th

Good Morning!

A couple of these are from the archives, so forgive me, and enjoy!

Black and White

Travel – One of the best parts of traveling is the people you meet. The kids at this school were some of our best buddies and teachers during  my and my friend Nira’s time to Thailand.

Silly – I love the silly about-to-break-into-a-smile expression on my nephew’s face as he zooms toward me with Gramma

B&W – playing with some of the actions I discovered the other day.

Spots – I love the little spots on these rhodies….I honestly didn’t even realize they were there until I was peering through my extension tube at them. Don’t they look like leopard spots?

Paper – The petals on these poppies remind me of paper, they are so delicate and see-through.

February 29th: A day at the beach

Happy Leap Year Day!

Isaac and I went up to Lincoln Park (insert joke here) today!

While it was cloudy, I think I was still able to get some good photos.

And as an added bonus, there was an awesome swing-thing, that would likely be able to project a small child a good 40 feet!

The swing of doom

And the photo of the day (I’ll be posting a few more after a bit):

Isaac versus Tree

The original

I’ve been enjoying playing around with Photoshop lately. Trying different things, testing different methods…

I liked the SOOC version of this picture, but I applied a lomo effect after using the smart brush tool, and I like it even more.

The only problem I’m facing is having multiple copies of the same photos with only slightly different changes. I can’t decide which I like the best, so I end up keeping 3 or 4 versions! I know, I should just buckle down and force myself to pick one version I like best, or maybe two, the original and a B&W. Anyone else having this problem, and if so, how do you deal with it?

Sweet Shot Day
