REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

A fascinating tutorial on Creative Exchange

Lisa has provided the most fascinating tutorial for 'lumen prints' on her Creative Exchange post this week!  I am definitely going to try it, assuming I can find some of the photo paper.

Meanwhile, I'm adding another rose photo to which I've added textures. The roses are the clearance-priced baby roses that I stuck in a vase in my window for this photo.    These are Flypaper textures: Sisley and Opal.  I also took the photo through a LoFi application for the "frame."

Thanks, Lisa, for the opportunity to share beautiful images such as those on your blog!
