Carly’s friends, Keira and Reno

Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms –                                                                                                                                                                            George Eliot

I am still working on Carly’s photos, unfortunately there is only so much time in a day. It is wonderful to have these lovely animals to look at, and photos to post, as I try to keep up with the wordpress post a day challenge!

I used Flora Bella actions to give the image a warm, slightly aged look. They have great actions, on their blog they use mostly children photos for subjects, but I find they work well in a numer of different occassions and subjects.  They are quick to apply, and easy to use, in that the group can be opened and each layer viewed,  masks can be applied to any or all layers to enhance or modify the affect and personalized for the image I am working on.

At this point I am trying to decide if I should clone out the purple rope, and your thought would be appreciated. It would be a lot of work, but I think it would be worth it.

Begonia’s are blooming

The begonia’s are blooming; I love all the delicate layers of  pedals and subtle color.  It seems that each day there are new flowers in the garden to enjoy.
