REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Project52 for 2012

In 2011, I successfully completed a P52 challenge:   one photo each week posted to the group.  In fact, I had a photobook made of my weekly images at the end of the year.   I've joined with a different group this year, but it's still a Project52 challenge.   It's week 8, and I was lucky enough to find an ancient Chevrolet pickup sitting alongside a country road this week.  It was snowing, but I just rolled down the window in my pickup and shot with my 70-250mm lens.   Editing those shots has been so much fun.    This is the most dramatic one...Topaz Adjust "stylized" effect.    I then "framed" (drop shadow)  the image in Picasa.

I love your rural photographs! You and Nancy @ A Rural Journal are such inspirations, and TexWisGirl too! I'm pretty new to all this and haven't played around with textures yet but have had some fun with the vintage effects on pixlr.
