A Photo A Day [221]


In my very humble opinion, I think I've been on fire lately coming up with great shots for this project. I'm really proud of what I've been churning out. Only problem is, setting up those shots and then editing them takes up a lot of my time. It's hard to juggle so many interests and this past week especially it's been tough to find the time to make dinner, read, work out, and keep up with my sewing projects since I've been spending so much time behind the camera and immersed in Photoshop. So today I'm going the lazy route and am posting a picture of a spindly tree I took a few days ago. I've done minimal processing, just a quick Photoshop action from a fun set of free actions I recently downloaded. The set's called "Ghost Stories" and with actions named "haunted," "nightmare," and "forbidden" how could I resist? Right up my horror movie-loving alley! If you like what you see you can download it here.

LOVE the colors in this one! This would be great blown up on a big canvas.

Were I as eloquent, I could have written this post about me--except that I don't work so hard at taking pictures. I do, however, know that it takes a lot of time to do even the simplest editing. And, I always want to do so many, many other things as well.

This pic is gorgeous. Love the colors, contrast, and just a bit of light behind the clouds. When will you open an Etsy shop so I can buy one? Really--I'm serious. I agree with Bree, this would be awesome on canvas.

Very cool! Sometimes just doing one thing makes all the difference.
