Black and White for Photo Art Friday

garden bandw with damask frame

This photo was taken in the vegetable garden.  The tools had been left there after a day of getting the plants in the ground.   It just looked like a cute vignette.   I used the gradient map adjustment to make the photo black and white.   I added two layers of the texture from Pixel Dust called “nitty gritty”.   The frame came from Isobelle LaFrance.


I am joining Bonnie for Photo Art Friday.   Have a wonderful weekend.

I am not sure why, but the minute I saw this, I was reminded of my grandfather's garden. He would spend hour after hour tending it in the summer. This is really beautiful. Thank you for the memory Val!
Have a wonderful weekend!

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…
