When your camera comes between you & family

This was a short and sweet article and couldn’t be more timely. 🙂 I’m sure we all have had to make these decisions at some point.

Just wanted to share Odie’s first visit to Santie……she was very well behaved with him. 🙂 I have a new scanner and put the pic in upside down to scan it-duh, that’s why you don’t see all of Santa’s hat. (Odie already told me what she wants for Christmas hehe)

I currently use a MacBook Pro 15″ laptop with a matte screen. I’m considering a monitor to give me a little more screen real estate, but, of course, those new iMacs jumped out and said “take me home”! LOL But, they all have glossy screens. In the store, the reflections weren’t too bad, and of course, the colors do pop but I’m wondering how it is in real life. So, If you don’t mind commenting and letting me know what you use and any thoughts you have, that would be great. At the end of the day, I probably am not buying a new computer (due to lack of $$) but it will still be under consideration and your input would be invaluable.


Thank You

To everyone who made comments and suggestions on my Retro post. I sent the image onto the gentleman in the photo and he asked if he could use it in a show tonight. 🙂 As I said, it’s been quite a while since I’ve been in Elements between the photoblog and trying to learning Aperture 3 (& I’m a slow learner!! haha) I did need a little push. Hopefully, hosting the challenge over at the Village will get me back in touch.

At the behest of others, I revisited the image I used for the theme. Such great suggestions! I thank you all! I really haven’t used Elements in a long time, being so busy taking pictures, I’ve forgotten what it can do for an image. I sort of followed a Corey Barker vid (on my iPad, of course) but really only followed adding paper and the blend modes. I then added the antique photo effect from the effects palette. The second image is the original without any editing(for Ron 🙂 ).

I’ve seen a few sunsets that were pretty nice but hard to capture them while driving. Haha. But, while this may not spell warmth so much, I did like it.
