Stories to be Told


Brownie with Serenity texture for web

If there are stories to be told this Brownie Hawkeye could tell us a few.  He has been here and there and seen a lot of things. If only he could talk.

Kim Klassen gave us a prompt of “story” this week for Texture Tuesday.  I am also joining Lisa Gordon for The Creative Exchange.   Valerie

Valerie, this is just beautiful, and so perfect for the prompt. I have a camera just like this one. It belonged to my Dad.

Thank you so very much for sharing with us this week at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

The old thing probably tells old tales that takes time to develop. Woohoo!
I had one like this - boy, have we come a long way. Great photo.

Hi Val
I recently told someone else on their blog that when I bought my Canon DSLR, Henry's said they'd take any old cameras we had for students to learn from. Apparently they still play with film in classes and that's where our ancient family heirlooms went. :-)

Stories with pictures! Great photo.

Such a good idea!
Did every family at one time have a "brownie"? Great texture work :)

I love this old style image, it works so well for your old camera, I love them too.

Oh, the memories it must have captured over the years.
I have a similar camera sitting on the shelf in my sewing room. I can't find film for it, or I'd love to see if it still works. :D
I have a few vintage cameras and have always wanted one of these. Just so cute and boxy.

Great shot and editing, Valerie. Also love your new profile photo -- pretty lady! :)
I like the post-processing of this photo.

Regards and best wishes

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…
