Texture and Color

This is an old tombstone in a cemetery just up the street from my daughters house in Greenwich, CT.  I thought it was an interesting memorial.  Seems people took an interest in memorializing their family “back in the day”.  Perhaps these days were too quick to crate and burn.  Oh,  I know, save the land for something more useful.  But still, memorials are to the person and LIFE.

Playing with texture and color in these two photos.  Adobe Elements and Topaz Adjust were the tools.

Feeling Mortal

with one comment

I’ve let life slip by.  There’s a whirl of life going on around me and I’m not really part of it.  I haven’t accomplished much and I the new energy is flowing like a fast train above my head.

All in a row….  they are all in a row…

With Roses

with one comment

I’ve tried to get serious with some tutorials on Adobe Elements 6 – removing backgrounds and using the Magic Extractor !*?  Anyway,  took one of the cemetery photos and added a red rose to the view.  Still a long way for me to go, but I’ll get there.
