A few new photos

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.- Oscar Wilde

I picked up a pizza today and while I was waiting I decided to take a few photos.  This was taken right beside the pizza parlor. My husband saw an old alley way and I saw art. This photo is a perfect example of why I love photography.  At any moment, or any where you may capture a moment that is unique to you and be able to share it for eternity with everyone that comes in contact with your art.


Today I tried out a few new photoshop actions.  I use these quite a bit for photo editing.

Cool eyelash brush

The last time I was on the Deviant Art web site I came across these really amazing eyelash brushes that were available for free...yes free download.  They were courtesy of redheadstock. They work fantastic and make add a vey dramatic appearance to your eyes in a photo.  I use Photoshop Elements 7, and they worked perfectly with my program.  Here is an example of what I did with the brushes.  They really made my eyes stand out in the photo for my LO. Here is a link to the page where I found them.

credits for the products used on my LO can be found here.

A Rainy Friday

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
