Pinecones in Abstract


pinecones with kk texture abstract

I have been playing around with a little homemade lightbox that I made.   The instructions came from Rosie at Leavesnblooms Studio.  I just went around the house grabbing items to photograph.   The little pinecones were part of a Christmas display.   I added the texture called Abstract from Kim Klassen.

I am joining Kim Klassen at Texture Tuesday and also Lisa Gordon at The Creative Exchange.    Have a great day.   Valerie

Valerie,I LOVE the texture. I like how the pinecone just "pops" in front and the others fade in the back. Good job! A lightbox, huh... I will have to look up Rosie at Leavesnblooms Studio. And I'm going to look up Kim Klassen! LOL...
Very interesting stuff!
Fabulous shot. I used my lightbox for the first time yesterday, love it.

I've been intending to make a light box for quite some time - you've reminded me that now is the time to act!= thanks!

This is a wonderful photograph Valerie! I love the focal point, and that beautiful depth of field.

Have a great day!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

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…
