Winter View for Touch Up Tuesday


Soldier’s Bay on the Holland River  is a location close to home.   The day I took this was overcast but I wanted to capture the boats all shrink wrapped and waiting for summer in the marina next door.   I did up the saturation on this one just to give a little more colour. 

Soldiers bay boats boosted

In photoshop CS2 I cropped it to take out the spindly trees and then added Pioneer Woman’s boost action and then using P/W again added the seventies action.   I like the warm tones that appeared.  I then flattened the whole thing and sharpened.   It now seems to have a sepia look to it.  Don’t know which I like better but it was fun playing around with it.  

More Touch Ups can be found at Chelsey’s Paper Heart Camera for Touch Up Tuesday.   Have a great day.  Valerie

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
