summertime blooms

with no rain in sight my sprinkler had been working overtime

this heatwave had made working in the garden difficult

and the weeds have taken over

i did get a chance to snap a few shots of some of the summer blooms

(above, white echinacea, several texture layers, bokeh, and text)

heatwave and homework

time to come inside and cool off!!

and get some work done on the computer
i've been behind on my lessons with my on-line class with marie otero

week two was all about portrait enhancements

i rarely take photos of people

unless they are unusual characters, in costume or kids

(above a photo of my husbands niece after running through the sprinkler!!

see the before shot here on my flickr page)
