Headed back to Cole Camp, Missouri for Thursday Doors this week. I still had some photos in my stash and hope you enjoy my experiments with filters in my choices.
Beginning with a slate filter. I personally like how it accents the missing panes of glass.
Why this filter is called Zeke I don’t know but it sure gives a feeling of yesteryear. I’d love a front door that wide along with those double screen doors! Can you imagine how many times the momma yelled to stop slamming those over the years??
Don’t step out this door without your ladder! The filter is called Napa and it brings out the peeling paint on that door’s window.
And yes, the propane line runs smack dab through that door. I had to get a close up just for myself.
The glow of those lights is the appeal for me to choose this version called Icarus. Remember Icarus flew too close to the sun and melted his wings? There was no threat of melting on this particular day I assure you with geese heading south along with the cold north winds.
Was it my finger, the camera strap, or the hair of the lady below me in the stands?
My oops photo for the Weekly Photo Challenge is a snapshot of my eldest daughter graduating with honors, Honors College graduate of the UCM Fall/Winter graduation. The Honors College is the second oldest program of its kind west of the Mississippi. Only 12 students were included this Fall.
I’m one proud mama!
More photos, because you know how mamas are with their photos……
My husband, who also graduated the night before with his Master’s Degree. How can one contain so much pride????!!!! I’m busting at the seams.
Both of my daughters. I. Am. Blessed.
Family photo moment. Short people always have to be on the front row. Dang it!
Introducing my good friend Jeanna, the Writer. Also a wonderful mother of 2 awesome little boys (who I was blessed to care for during their earliest years). Read about her reflection on going without social media for a month.
No Facebook November is long over. December 1st arrived and I welcomed social media back with a wink and a shudder…
The fast was not as difficult as I thought it would be…don’t get me wrong, my November was filled with plenty of #thestruggleisreal moments. I promised a follow-up so I’ll just let you in on most of the crazy and you can make up your mind about how you feel about me or social media detoxing or whatever…
The first few days my hands literally acted like they didn’t know what to do when they picked up my phone. There was shaking…and fruitless tapping as my thumb attempted to locate a non-existent Facebook icon on my phone’s cracked screen. After about 5 days into the fast my eyes stopped looking up at my browser tabs to see if I have new FB notifications. (Excessive or obsessive behavior?–sometimes you don’t…
Feeling pretty content that I have graduated in my Crochet Experience to accomplish this motif. Reading and Understanding a pattern can be the most difficult part of crochet. There are a variety of pattern examples of which I won’t bore you with at this time.
The point of this blog post is the PiCtUrEs ..
This version uses Gold Metallic #5 thread and “Fern” #5 thread. It’s about 2 1/2 inches square.
Here we have a #3 Scarlet and Antique White Combo
This shows the size comparison with different thread sizes.
Motif in hand, this picture was taken by a different camera.
