I’m sorry to say, but this post is all over the place. Just wanted to let you know up-front.
It’s been a busy last three weeks.
A good but busy last three weeks.
An overwhelming last three weeks, as my classes are getting more and more involved. But I’m hanging in there. Learning a lot. And hanging on for dear life. Or so it seems when I get overload.
And really looking forward to summer.
This shot was taken on one of our drives/errand date filled weekends. 3 weeks ago ish? It’s a wonderful weekend to remember.
I love coffee and I love surprises – The hubs surprised me with this really cool thermos early April. Love the rubber grips + I really enjoying drinking out of this guy in photography class.
It appears we are going thru another downsize. It was time for the pool table and light to go. Thank you Craigslist for pulling thru again!
A lot of spring cleaning is in order this time of the year. But I took a rest in Photoshop to do a fun edit on this shot that I took weeks ago.
Below is one of the before and after shots I worked on in Photoshop class. The lesson called for us to use an old photo in need of help.
I’m thinking she is my Great, Great Grandma? The black and white on the left is the finished product.
There were many hours involved as the detail was brought back. If you enlarge the shot, you will notice the detail in her hair, face, hands, eyes, glasses, jewelry, buttons, folds in her dress and scarf and the detail on the chair. As well as touching up the background. This took upwards of 8 hours hand drawing the detail via mouse attached to the computer. I found this work therapeutic.
My latest assignment calls for stitching together 5 photos to make a large pano. This is just one of the 5 to be stitched together.
I can’t wait to see how this looks with all the pieces in place.
So today I worked a bit more from a different place. I like this spot.
I particularly like how the sun only sprinkled the wild flowers with golden light.
This fallen tree caught my eye.
As did this flower.
And just like that, I’m calling the blog caught up. Whether it’s all caught up or not. And I feel a great sense of relief getting this off my chest. And I feel a little guilty that this post is harsh and broken into many directions. But it’s a little reminder of some of the things I/we’ve been up to.
The things that make me happy today.
- I went to the grocery for the second time in two days. I know, right? But I’m happy to have the ticket item (I forgot yesterday) for the hubs tonight.
- Laundry is nearly caught up, just one load to fold.
- The blog is
- I think I have enough shots to complete my rather large assignment – due in 2 weeks. Makes me extra happy.
Thank you for checking in. I trust you are well and having a wonderful week.
Blessings – Debbie
