Photo Play & checking in...

While in general I am pretty partial to processing photos as close to their natural state as possible. Maybe saturating the colors a bit to make them pop, or adjusting the sharpness and exposure, but not much beyond that. 

There are time though that I just want to play with a photo. It is often a photo that I like well enough but usually not the favorite of the bunch. 

And all of that can be kinda fun too!

Things here have been busy in a good way. It is feeling more and more like spring and the weekend was spent in workshops (gold panning for Wes and his dad, and edible landscaping for me, while grandma hung out with the kids) and in the yard building a fire pit, digging in the garden, and finding critters (the first drangonfly nymph was found by the little naturalist). It was all good!

Hope you are all well & have a great start to the week!


  1. Yes Photoshop is fun! I find I can sometimes lose myself in it for too long! I like the way you have tried different tones with this images, which is a lovely image in and of itself. :) I won't choose a favourite though because I like them eye is drawn to the third one the most!

    Too bad that dragonfly nymph may have molted by the time we see you again. ? The boys would love to see it.

  2. I so enjoy hearing how happy you are there. :)
