Texture Tuesday {Winter}

The snow right now is where my husband likes it...up in the mountains.  Fortunately, I can drive just a bit more than 12 miles to find some wonderful winter landscapes, which is what I did today.  I am joining with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. I erased a brown USFS sign (for snowmobile riders) from the original image, added a white vignette, and then added kk_hope filled in multiply blending mode.

Project 52 2014 #51

Joining with Kent Weakley's Project 52 and Sweet Shot now-favorite "vintage" auto.  I ticked off one item on my Photo "bucket list":  photograph the old red Ford in snow.  The opportunity arose at the end of Thanksgiving weekend.  I definitely want it in my photo book for 2014.

Christmas Hope

At this time of year, I like to play with bokeh....and lights in general.

Texture Tuesday

This tenacious cluster of leaves has been in my camera viewfinder several times over several weeks.  I'm not certain what keeps them hanging on.  On a foggy photo drive this morning, I recorded the leaves once again and discovered the image was perfect for one of the textures in Kim Klassen's "Ben's Collection," a group of textures she created four years ago to fund expensive vet care for her new pup, Ben, after he was seriously injured when hit by a car. This particular image features "6" in the collection.  I'm linking up with Kim's Texture Tuesday.  

The word verification is NOT my idea!  Evidently Blogger has it on all blogs....just skip it and post a comment as usual.  It works.  

Project 52 2014 #50

The cold and snowy start to December has turned to cold and wet--and foggy.  We live in a valley which is susceptible to fog when there's a combination of moisture and lower temperatures.  My foggy photo is the choice for Week 50 of Kent Weakley's Project 52 and Sweet Shot Tuesday.

Evidently Blogger has added Word (number, actually) Verification to all blogs.... you don't need to do it---just comment and skip to publish.

Project 52 2014 #49

A week away...four days at the Pacific Coast on the other side of the state...and I captured my 49th choice for Project 52.  It's the beautiful Yaquina Bay Bridge in Newport, Oregon.  Linking up with Kent Weakley's Project 52 and Sweet Shot Tuesday.

Project 2014 #48

The year of 2014 is winding down, which is difficult for me to comprehend; I would like Time to slow just a bit!   For Week #48 of Kent Weakley's Project 52 and Sweet Shot Tuesday, I've selected a photo I took a few days ago when the overnight freeze had resulted in fog and frost.
