The Creativity Project: Double Exposure


The September theme for The Creativity Project is 
Double Exposure.
I haven't done a whole lot with double exposures, 
but there are MANY ways to use them.
(I tried it one other time here to use one of the photos as a texture for the other.)
My zinnias are quickly fading,
so I took this one and put it over an out of focus image of my cleome.
Pretty soon my garden will be just a dream again.


Do you know which of these girls is Bethany?
If you've been around here much, you do,
but she and this friend are two peas in a pod.
I had a blast with them on a girls' day before school started.

Ben Panther Football

And here's Ben, then and now.
I'd say some of his dreams have come true.
I love the young man that is emerging from the heart of that little boy.

This was entertaining.
I know that no two photographers
will have the same take on this theme.
I'm excited to see what inspiration they have.
I'm pretty sure that once I see, I will have to be trying some more.
Becky is next in the circle at Life With Kaishon.
She has the sweetest take on life over there.
Then, when you have been inspired to create something of your own,
you can post it on The Creativity Project Facebook page.

Photographer's Prerogative (zoo edition)


At the end of all the summer activities, 
it's always good to return to our old favorites.


Photo 52, Week 35:  Photographer's Choice


Of course, the zoo's photo contest was soon to close,
and I knew I needed to make my photographer's choices for that too.


Ben was my date, and he was willing to wait patiently while I shot a few more.




The highlight was these lynx kittens.
I totally get that mama right there.


They were so much fun to watch.

Flamingo Feathers

Then there are the flamingoes.
Colorful, graceful.



Penguin Play


Photo 52, Week 36:  Back/Behind
We sat behind this guy at the bird show.
It's always so fun to see the expressions of the people who get surprise visits from the birds,
and also those around them.


Does that rack not make you want to call and schedule a chiropractic appointment?




This photographer's choice is clearly to keep taking pictures, 
even if there is not time to process them all.
