I have been working hard at improving my photography skills by using my camera daily and also by experimenting with Photoshop and learning special effects. It has been almost a full year and I think I am finally starting to leap rather than crawl
This first image was taken Jan 2 2012 at a makeup counter in Macys
and I was asked to put my camera away. But not before the SNAP.
I have been an active participant on the Ugly Hedgehog
for over a full year now. Hard to believe I have made CYBER FRIENDS
there, but it is true, I have.
One of them heard my plea for help and responded and, well,
I can now Kalide at full size rather than at Tuxpi where all images
are significantly minimized.
Thank you Andrew if you happen to see this.
I love a Kaliedaglobe
RED is HOT!
and it is always fun to play in black and white.
Not to forget my friends Swede and GG
who got my on track to practicing with cut and paste!
as you can see I do need a little more practice....
There really is Something Special about this time of year between Chanukah and the secular New Year. Here on the east coast it is usually cold and this year we even had a nice little snow flurry to whiten things up for Christmas. Warmth is derived from family and friends...and a little bit of the bubbly.
Beautiful decorations and ornamentations are everywhere...I made my own.
We wake and rise with the sun.
Head over to the farm.
Start the food fest with the best ever sticky stuff. This year made in a bundt pan
and maybe the best yet.
Sometimes it is the little things that bring the most pleasure.
This is really little and I love how each year the mini town seems to grow.
As the morning wanes and the sun starts to set we make our way to the next feast. We are always greeted with smiles, delightful chatter, good food and drink.
Sue this last image is derived from your dining room chandelier.
Went out looking for meteor lights and found my neighbor in the dark, fumbling to put up his holiday lights. Never saw anyone putting up lights while they were actually plugged in and lit.
He looked pretty happy so I guess its all good.
