Photo opportunities are everywhere…
If you followed my other post about the nest on my hose hanger, the babies are finally here. Mommy Robin has faithfully sat on those 4 eggs, and now has four babies. Finally, she got off long enough so I could capture this picture. Maybe I can get a video or other photos of her feeding the babies.
I’m just hoping they can fly away soon and I can have the use of my hose now that it’s Spring and things need hosed down. ~smiles~
Ever since grandbabykins has been little, he loves playing with the water at grammy’s house. As soon as the warm weather hit last Summer, he was outside and wanted water. The solution was to give him a bucket instead of him constantly running the hose. He was fine with that so I gave him a bucket and he wanted one of my small canning jars that he spied to play with. It kept him busy for hours, but eventually, I did end up squirting him and I’m pretty sure I ended up soaked in retribution from him. We always make the outdoor playtime fun. Even this past winter, he wanted a squirt bottle so he could play with water in the house, but to make it worthwhile, I gave him one and let him clean the glass tables and anything that couldn’t be harmed with water.
I chose this picture as my ‘Black and White w/Color’ for the Texture Tuesday theme for May 14th. I edited the photo to take out the color and then added color back in where I wanted, and I also applied Kim Klassen’s kk_2303 texture (free at http://kimklassen.com) to the photo. I then added the frame from Picasa’s free photo program.
In addition, I decided to add the emboss feature that is in Adobe just for fun. See below:
and below is the original picture that I started with.
Hope you enjoy!! and as always we love visitors, and comments that are just saying you’re here and we welcome critiques of the photo. Shared with Texture Tuesday and also with Tuesday Muse
Below is video of grandbabykins when little playing with the hose and getting frustrated when it gets too heavy for him to pull further or for it to reach as far as he’d like. Grammy did quit filming to help him. haha
For ‘POP’ Texture Tuesday I used Kim Klassen’s texture kk_Sunday with soft light overlay.
Thanks for stopping by
Loving that Spring has arrived and the warmer mornings. Nothing like early morning sunrise and a fresh brewed cup of coffee or brewed tea.
Miss Robin has decided to favor us with a nest of eggs on our hose hanger…bad part is now that Spring has arrived and I like to clean off the patio and other uses for the hose…it is otherwise occupied for a bit. Not to fear though, we have another hose out front to use or to attach on the back, but really not wanting to disturb Miss Robin. This picture has two eggs (a beautiful blue in color), but she is now sitting on 4 eggs and won’t stay off the nest long enough for me to get another picture. I also used this picture for my April 30th Texture Tuesday (found at my other website http://peabea.net)
Playing with Adobe photo programs and using one of Kim Klassen’s free textures is the name of the ‘Texture Tuesday’ game, and then everyone posts their’s for the week at her website. It is interesting to see all the different, original ideas each week. Give a visit, if you’ve never and maybe you’ll want to participate.
This week’s theme was just anything that shows a celebration. I chose the words from my coffee cup because each day should be a celebration. I applied a colored pencil glow and then applied the KKStorm texture.
Below is my original.
Enjoy and please leave a comment if you visit so I know you were here even if it’s only one word. Thanks a bunch and Happy Tuesday
