We just moved again............I've had a time also getting the daughter ready to move into her apartment too! She needed everything......
And on top of that I think I needed a break too! But I've been looking through a very set of pictures I took last year in Terryville . I never got a chance to post these, they were taken on Oct 26, 2013. We thought we were in Sleepy Hollow bc we don't know the area because of the "Sleepy Hollow" TV show they were all decked out for Halloween and have a parade every year. It's really a very pretty town. Terryville, we ate at Bella's Diner, which was awesome. But Sleepy Hollow was actually the next town over and they do ride with the headless horseman which leaves from the graveyard..spooky!
We hear from the locals that the tv series just made the events around the area insanely popular and crowded.
After I finish with the pictures I will post them!
Also hopefully soon I will be posting some pics I took from New Orleans where I went with my husband for our anniversary. Didn't do that place justice at all! bc the weather was colder than normal.
It's nice to be back!
This set from Brattleborro, VT was taken last year on my honeymoon. I had forgotten they were there and meant to post them sooner. This was our first time exploring Brattleborro. I love the old buildings and the quaint shops.
Here is what I have been up to. Sorting through my Memory Card File on my desktop to see if I have anything worthy of being posted and didn't get a chance to post......picked a set that has a disco balll, a side street in downtown Hartford, a set from Cedar Hill. Odd things that I didn't have time to work on.
I hope to post them by the end of the week. Then set up new files for new work.
Also I have been learning not photoshop, but shadow and lighting with a book I found and the Premium tutorials about compostion. I am hoping to improve on this stuff! I hope to grow and apply this to everything!
Next week I am back to mainpulations.
Thinking of publishing something.......
I am satisfied with how it looks so far! It will be done a bit at a time. Thanks for the Premium Membership whoever you are. It's so nice to get this, how thoughtful. Have been going through tutorials and am reading a lighting and shadow book too. So right now I am learning and organizing the website.
So much learning in art, to get up there.
I hope everyone likes the new layout I did last weekend. I think it's better because I like being able to make the images so that you can see them. Did waffle through it on my own.
So now I have folders in my gallery! Yeah!
And so I am going to play with industrial stuff just to see if I have the chops for it. And I can't tell you what a nice change it has been for me. I hope everryone likes it as much as I do................
I am working on getting those up in my gallery, but want to be a bit experimental. I want to try the screen tool. I want to these pick of Ridge Rd. that i took this morning and they are a really good set and so i hope you like them!
"La Paloma will be open Monday thru Friday 7am to 6pm and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. The second floor space will serve as a gallery for local artists."
It's a lovely coffee house. Come on down and check out my photography!! It's at 405 Capitol Ave., Hartford, CT 06106. It's a very hip place to hang and hang out!
The wall will feature the unique landscape of Hartford. Also two November Sunrises, which are entrants to the 9th Annual Smithsonian photo contest. All my art if very reasonbly priced!
Thanks to everyone who has supported me.
I use art as a process of healing to. It makes me feel great to take pictures and photo manip. I like the result of photo editing, but i find the process is very time-consuming and posting photo manip w links, time consuming. I am kinda lazy and would rather just a good picture.
I love to get outside. But on lousy days, in the rain or snow, inside. Also I love getting carried away with imagination.
But I am not a gullible person.
