Okay, that is enough rambling. Here is what I created this week! Hope you love them:
|Carrizozo Blue - New Mexico 11/365|
Clauch School - New Mexico Ghost Town 10/365
|Summer Jellyfish 13/365|
|New Red Shoes 12/365|
|The Pantheon - exterior 15/365|
The first two images are from different New Mexico Ghost towns and have been taken as we travel around the state. Carrizozo is a nice little town to stop in and get a soda from the small shop and soda fountain. There is also a street of small galleries and gift shops. The hours are short, but if they are open is a nice stop.
The jelly fish were taken this summer and I have a few more shot of different jellies I have yet to process. I love to just stand there and watch the jelly fish when I visit an aquarium, they are very calming. Much better then running into them in the ocean surf.
That brings us to the New Red Shoes. This came about from a shopping trip with my daughter. She actually wanted to look at clothes for herself for the first time. Definitely a milestone, but to me one that make it seem she is growing up too fast. I know, picking out a shirt, sweater, jeans and shoes is really not a big deal. But it was her reaction and the look on her face that made me wonder where my baby went. We did have a lot of fun with this shoot and she really loves the shoes. It is nice to have the memories tied together, because I know this is only the beginning of her growing up.
The cupid was all about textures and using them to add to an image. The hearts go so well with this cute sculpture, don't you think?
My final photo is of the Pantheon. This was taken in 2004 with film. I scanned in the negative and worked with it digitally. I added so scratch texture and a little paper to give it finished feeling that matched the image and worked well with the film's grain. The Pantheon is one of my favorite buildings ever and the inside is even more amazing then the exterior. I had to do more from that same strip, so here is the interior:
