Sunset on 2011


This was a fantastic photo for the end of another 365. This photo is looking out over Lake Tarpon in John Chestnut Sr. Park in Pinellas County. Photo was shot in 6x7 and post processed in Squara. For all of my blog followers and FB friends, I have enjoyed sharing my photos with you and I wish you all the very best in 2012.

Holiday Flash!


I went to an open house last night and found this fabulous find. An elf taking pictures with a camera that flashes. Doesn't get much better than that! I was so excited by this that I had to find one on Ebay and he is on his way to me. This is a Hallmark Keepsake ornament that is about 10 years old. Photo was taken with iPhone without flash and then ran through Pixlromatic, Dynamic Light, and Scratchcam. Wishing everyone a very happy 2012!
