Orange Moon

We had an orange full moon this week and my BFF and I went out to capture it and get some other shots during the golden hour.

Families and friends were out enjoying the last bit of daylight and many of the small children had to be told several times to come in.

The clouds came in with the rising of the moon but the moon didn’t disappoint.

Evening Walk on the Beach

It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve had an opportunity to walk the beach but I managed to get away yesterday evening for a little while.  It’s been hot and humid but the breeze off the ocean felt wonderful.  

There was a family on the beach flying kites.  Well, at least one of them was.  The other two weren’t having much luck keeping theirs in the air.

For Extra Credit #4 – Oil Painting

So my Photoshop class is going great and this week we learned to fix images.  We took an old photograph that was cracked and torn and made it whole again.  It’s really cool stuff!

I’ve been taking old photos and playing with them using some of the new tricks learned in class.  My favorite thing I’ve learned so far is painting on photographs.  Here’s a photo I took of some birds in the surf several months ago along with the painted image.  The difference is pretty subtle but the painted image has more of a calming effect than the original picture.

On The Savannah

My daughter lives on the Savannah River and while there on babysitting duties this past week, we took a walk along the river and it felt just like home.

The next day it rained so we weren’t able to go out for a walk but from the back deck, my daughter spotted this fawn by the pond.  My eyes are not nearly as good as hers so I never saw it but aimed the camera in the general direction she pointed out and somehow captured the fawn.
