My fingers are frozen as I type this. We’re under blankets, as always, in the living room because I think it’s ridiculous to waste oil on too much heat when you can stay warm by simply wearing the proper attire and snuggling a little under a blanket. Oh, we have the heat on, don’t get me wrong. Some rooms are just chillier than others. It’s quite comfortable, actually.
Well, except for the frozen fingers.
I realized as I sat down to my laptop tonight that I had absolutely nothing to say and worse yet, no photos to share. So what I did while my husband watched Jeopardy was to turn photos of flowers into sepia tones.
And when did we become our parents, watching Jeopardy every night is what I want to know.
All of these photos were done (rather quickly, I might add) using the free actions available at Pioneer Woman’s blog. She’s updated them just today and get ready for this, Element users: a version for Elements is coming out soon.
All the photos here were processed using sepia tone (from set 2) and boost (from set 1) and each photo has a texture added. I love this texture (above) by Telzey on Flickr. It’s one of my favorites.
Same thing here, using sepia tone and boost, along with the same texture as above. All of the textures used in this post were set to ‘soft light’ in the layer mode, with different opacities applied for each photo.
For this I used Book Cover 3, available at Shadowhouse Creations.
Bokah2, also from Shadowhouse Creations. I’m not thrilled with this offering. Meh.
I used to have lots of spider plants. That’s what this little flower is. And I’ll tell you a short story about me. When things suck in my life, I kill my plants. Oh, I don’t mean to. And I don’t kill all of them. But one year after something horrific happened in my life, I realized that all my plants had died. But I was still alive, and so was everyone I loved. So I went out and bought new plants when I felt better.
Yeah, I’m a little crazy.
Please don’t hold it against me, k?
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
QUESTION FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS:
When your camera sensor needs cleaning, do you do it yourself or take it to the camera shop to have it done? Inquiring minds want to know. I have dust on my sensor and I am getting weary of cloning out all the little circles!
