More Weeds Part 2 - Texture Tuesday

It seems the only subjects of my photos lately are weeds.

Hopefully, after all the recent rain, some flowers will come back to my garden.

Texture: Minus 43 by Kim Klassen, Soft Light at 80% opacity.

So I took the opportunity to get some photos while everything is nice and new.

Sharing with Texture Tuesday

Texture Tuesday is back.

This week's theme is 'Cuppa'.   This is my cup.

I'm sure that if we followed these words, life would be so much easier don't you think?

I used Kim's Return texture at soft light, 78% opacity.

Capture Your 365 - Day 11 Climb

I'm at Day 14 in my project 365.

This is one of my favourite images from last week. The prompt was 'Climb'.

I was going through different options in my mind - stairs, hill, ladder.

Then I decided to try using my Son's Lego for something a little different.

The rock was in my front garden, kitchen string was used for the rope and Blu-Tack helped to hold everything in place for rock climbing Lego style.

Kingfisher (and a new texture)

This Kingfisher has been visiting our garden for the past week.  Every day I have tried to get a photo but it is just too quick and flies away before I can even pick up my camera.   Today it was sitting on a shady branch trying to escape the heat.  I couldn't get too close, though.  So I took this picture through a window and my lens was at full zoom (200mm).

When the sun hits it's wings the colour is the most vivid shade of blue.

The texture I used was Fremantle using Soft Light at 33% opacity. I named this texture after the beautiful stone buildings we saw on a visit to the town of Fremantle in Western Australia.

You can download the texture here.

Happy New Year 2013!

Well, it's the start of another year.

Time to put those resolutions into place, maybe even start a project you've been wanting to do for a while.

If you are planning to try a photo a day, here's a great place to start:

Capture Your 365.

This site has lots of helpful tips and tutorials to help you during your P365.   There are even daily prompts that arrive in your in-box if you like.

This is the one I am trying.   Hopefully I will succeed after failing miserably over the last three attempts.   So maybe it will be fourth time lucky.

Happy New Year!
