REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Texture Tuesday with a favorite color

Although blue, red, and purple are really my favorite colors,  this wonderful sea-green is so appealing to me.  The vintage canning jar is one of those that gradually turned that color over the years.  I also like the grunge texture from Kim Klassen and am linking up with her Texture Tuesday.

Edited with Elements' "sprayed strokes," Topaz Clarity, and kk_cool grunge.

The texture is really perfect for this photo of the old jars. I've seen reproductions of these aqua colored Mason jars, but they don't look nearly as nice - it's the worn and weathered texture, the patina that can't be replicated.

Wonderfully done. The color is beautiful. The only thing that would make it bettert for me is that the Ball jar would vbe full of my mother's pickled peaches. I haven't had them for about 50 years.
