Lines for Photo Art Friday


fences with texture and text



To decide on this weeks challenge for lines I went to the web for a definition:  This is what I found.

Definition: Leading lines are lines within an image that leads the eye to another point in the image, or occasionally, out of the image. Anything with a definite line can be a leading line. Fences, bridges, even a shoreline can lead the eye. If can pair leading lines with a subject that is placed according to the rule of thirds your image should be very strong.

I have a favourite little spot in the countryside that I go to in the fall because the road is lined with maple trees and has those snake rail fences that I adore. I know in this spot I will see lots of colour.  I love the contrasts in colour between the leaves, wood and the line of trees.  A texture of Bonnie’s called Vintage Vellum was applied and the I went to Topaz Adjust 5 to enhance it a bit.  A frame from Coffeeshop blog lends itself to making the photo look interesting and then I added some text.

I will be joining Bonnie at PixelDustPhotoArt for Photo Art Friday.

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…
