Ok, so took me a while to post this pic for Cee’s circle and curves challenge…

Cee has it going on with plenty of challenges!  Check out her other fabulous challenges and her fab photos too 🙂  I like how in this photo the opening in the tree is a curvy circle.  So with one photo one circle and several curves.  Trees or any part of a tree make great subjects for black and white photos!  Do you see a heart shape in the center?  Well almost.  I like how our eyes finish lines not written for us 😉

Nature’s Pink Pom Poms

Walking along these bright pink weeds caught my eye on a sloping hill.  I’m loving the textures of these pinky peculiars! The two stringy haired ones in the back sticking this way and that..to the larger yellow dotted pomp and circumstance Pom Poms.

Lastly, used one effect, silk, in Repix iPhone ap.  I’m partial to this last edit.
Which edit do you prefer?  

Art doodling

These two pages are my favorite so far from my new journal – Art Doodle Love by Dawn DeVries Sokol. It’s a light hearted, beautifully colored and slightly predoodled 🙂 type of journal. No notebook paper type lines found here!

Her prompts get me started with what to write or doodle. As always I wish I doodled more in this book, but I have a good start. Adding words into artwork has always interested me! This book is an easy way to explore that.

This book is geared more towards teens, but I’m young at heart so I don’t mind.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Squares, Triangles, Angles

For this challenge, I decided to share a beautiful editing option on my camera called fragmented.  Often I change my settings to this mosaic like filter 🙂

Many of my best photos are happy accidents when I decide to let go of my 1st intentions and snap happy!  Enjoying all my cameras options.  Although, I ‘m still needing to research my panorama settings…can’t seem to figure that one out yet.  Always more to learn about photography!  So much fun 🙂

Big creative liberties were taken for this challenge, Cee!  Subjects are not square yet the filter changes them into boxes.  I squared ’em 😉

“There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.” ~ Anais Nin

Great, intriguing quote.  Love it!
