OnOne Perfect Effects Giveaway

Columbine-June 2014

Once again, thanks to Steve, from Another Rich Collectible Photography, I have 4 copies of OnOne Perfect Effects 8  to give away here.  It can be used on a Mac or a PC, with Photoshop, Lightroom, Elements 10, 11, and 12, Aperture, or as a standalone.  As always, you do not need to follow, tweet, like, or anything such as that, but if you would like to be included in the giveaway, you will need to let me know in the comments.  I will draw the winners on Friday, August 29th, and post the names here.  As always, Steve, I thank you so much for being so kind not only to me, but to my visitors here.

On another note….Blogger people…it came to my attention (quite a while ago) that when I leave a comment on your website, the comment appears just fine, but many of your are not getting a notification that I left a comment.  This has nothing to do with you, your site, or Blogger, but all to do with the fact that I use Yahoo e-mail (for now, anyway).  I won’t bore you with the details, but it began happening when Yahoo re-vamped their email, and I just kept forgetting to mention it here.  SO, I am sorry you are not being notified.

Have a fantastic weekend!

It All Comes Down to This

K-Senior Presentation

I was in Boston over the weekend, for my son’s senior thesis presentation.  Now I may be a bit biased (just a bit!), but awesome does not even begin to describe it.  Not only the project itself, but his confidence in what he had created was unshakable.

Unfortunately, all of the photographs I took, were loaded with noise because the room was quite dark, but I really love this one for two reasons.  First, the silhouette was a happy accident, and second, when you look at the background, know that this was a child, who when in high school, thought that math was nothing more than an instrument of torture.

You are amazing, Honey.  We love you, and we are so proud of you!!!!

Field Flowers 1


Field Flowers 2

Although I am sure they have a technical name, we call them Buttercups, and they really are the prettiest little flowers.  Like so many field flowers, I really love them because you always seem to find them nestled amongst so many other flowers.  This makes getting a relatively decent background quite easy.  However, on the day that I took these photographs, it was quite cloudy, and the fact that they were really deep in the grasses/other flowers, made it even darker.  So, time for a texture!  The one I used here is one I made just for these photographs, and I used it more as an overlay than a texture.  If you like it, you are quite welcome to use it.  Just click on the link below it, and it’s yours to use as you wish.

From the beginning of next week, though about mid-August, I am going to be on and off scarce here, as well as on FB, IG, and Flickr, due to company from out of town, birthdays, travel, and one very special graduation!  :-)  We’ll see how time goes, and take it from there.

Happy day to you!
