Happy Friday Everyone!
It is officially Spring YAY! (But of course it is still raining here in the PNW and has been every day but one in March so far, oh lucky us! :(
But this intrepid Photographer (He! He!) could stand it no long, hopped into her SUV and went out determined to take photos in between the down pours :)
I wanted to share with you what I found :)
Well, first here are a couple of shots I took at home, these are some of the Roses from my Birthday Bouquets :)
Oh, it is definitely time for a Tea Party (could we do a virtual one!)
I LOVE the paint stroke feature on Paintshop but just for playing around :)
This Bluebell shot (above) is from last year but I decided to cropped it a bit (below) What do you think?
This Buddleia shot is also from last year. I have been experimenting a little with Photoshop, I have it on trial right now and just added a warmer filter, I like it.
And then I hit the road :)
I think you can tell it is overcast but it gives a lovely background to these Magnolia Buds :)
Added a warmer filter :)
These 2 are from last year. I cropped them as I wanted to see what a longer narrower format would look like and then I added a little redder colour to one and a little sepia tone to the other :)
Then cropped and a warmer filter added. Can't decided which I like the best.
I LOVE these old suitcases, they were in a window display in downtown P.Town!
These Daffs look like they are trying to escape :)
I LOVE this fence, the pattern and textures, amazing. It must stretch for 3/4 of a mile or more around this property.
This just cracked me up. You can tell they have been "Just Hanging Around" for a long time 'coz they have grassing growing out of them :)
Then I went to the park and took some shots of the trees reflected in the water (just as it started to rain again!)
Added a little red tone to all 3 of these at different levels, I like them but.........
I like this one in sepia tones the best :)
And just to prove that occasionally the Sun does shine in Oregon I grabbed my camera and took a shot of the brave Daffs in my Garden (yep, that is a bit of blue sky there in the background in between those white fluffy things :)
Let me know what you think! :)
Hope you all have a lovely Weekend!
Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.
