Fun With Textures

These are a few photos I have taken over the last few months. Tonight I was experimenting with adding texture to them. I found a website called and they had FREE downloadable textures.

Any thoughts? Does it add anything? Detract anything? I liked the old feel to the lighthouse and the grunge feel to my son's photo in his Santa hat. Not as happy with the dog photo....

Sunset In The Neighborhood

Despite the clutter of cars and trees on my street, I still manage to capture some nice skies every now and then.

Sweeeeeet Things!

Sugar cookies are sweet....... I tested just to make sure.

Dogs... can be sweet...sometimes - not this particular day.....

And fall hydrangeas, even though most of the vibrant color is gone, are still sweet... I put dry ones in a vase in my family room. I love them!

I Heart Faces - Autumn Beauty

This is my entry for this week's theme. I actually took this photo of my daughter two years ago. She is perched in our favorite tree. The colors were stunning on this particular Thanksgiving Day so I had to capture it. Glad I got it because now I have a photo to enter the theme this week!!!

Be sure to visit I Heart Faces to see all of the other great entries!!

It's Raining Red!!!!

We are currently in the midst of a Nor'easter so we are getting a lot of rain. Our front lawn is getting a "red rain" thanks to the Japanese Maple tree we have.

My Every Day Life - Dull, But I Wouldn't Trade It

Glimpses of an everyday life.

I could drink this every morning! My house would be immaculate from the burst of energy I would get!

Looking quite bored.....

Afternoon snack - yummmmmmmm.

My baby, Ruby.

I Never Get Bored Of Sunsets

And I've been know to trip over things in my haste to grab my camera to photograph them. This is one taken in Avalon, NJ, right on the bay. I love it when the sun gets to this point in the sky, not just for the beautiful picture it gives us but because you can actually watch the sunset unfold in a matter of a few minutes. I just never get tired of it.

A Simple Plume

This is a plume that goes atop the band members' hats. They are distributed to the kids just as they are getting ready to perform their field show at the high school football games and collected as soon as they come off the field. This way, the plumes will stay new looking longer. I think they're sharp looking!
