Having Some New Creative Fun

March 14, 2013

Good morning.  Today is sunny, but cooler.  Not quite 70F today.  Still, for us this is nice.  Today, I will take a walk to the dumpster with a bag of trash.  Now be honest.  Doesn't this sound like a lot of fun?  lol.  Actually the walk will be fun.  Also it means that the legs are behaving much better.

I re-joined a group I used to belong to, Digital Whisper.  (If you want to join, it costs around $25 a year)  They have a some great artistic projects going on there.  I joined the Photographic class and worked on getting caught up with their challenges.  A favorite of mine was the Black & White challenge.  Take a color photo and improve it by changing it to black and white.

I'm also going to use this image for Photo Art Friday.  (even if I am a day early.)   First I'll put up the original photo, then the black and white image.

I also have a fun photo of one of the tourists out for a ride on a nice day.  I thought this big guy had a rather interesting face.

Later today, or maybe tomorrow, Su and Pogo and I are going to the flea market.  I think I'll pick up an extra pair of flip flops to take home with me.  The best part of this, of course, is the walking exercise. 

After that, I'll do a bit more on my knitting project before I start the next project for the DW forum.   The 'thing" that I'm knitting is beginning to look like a shawl or a lap blanket.   I don't know how my aunt makes one of these a week.  I'll probably still be working on this next Christmas.

Ooooh, I almost forgot!  Deanne sent me a photo of some snow people that she and Eddie and the kids made after this last snow storm.   These snow folks are supposed to be Dee and Eddie.  Aren't they just adorable?

Pogo is a bit perturbed with me because I have shut the patio door and closed the curtains.  He was having himself a grand old time barking at the maintenance men who are outside pruning the trees.   Now that I've spoiled his fun, he's curled up on a blanket and taking a nap. 

Now I think it's time to put some clothes on and maybe get started on this gorgeous new day.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I'm glad your legs are feeling up to walking, but the flea market sounds like more fun than the dumpster, just sayin'.

I love the typical Florida tourist. He must be in Florida a lot. He looks unimpressed.

The hibiscus yesterday were beautiful! I like that rose photo better in color I think, but I'm more of a black and white fan in old photos or movies. Now I sound like I look like the tourist, huh? lol

I love Dee Dee and Eddie as snow people! (Except that I'm not a huge fan of snow.) I've never been able to make snow people look that good. It's an art my dad showed me but didn't pass the snow art gene down!

There is chasing and squalling upstairs. I need to go try to referee a literal cat fright. (sigh)

Hugs, Nani

Good to hear you are well and warm. We're having a hot spell right now in Las Vegas in the upper 80's.
Had lunch with Mary Ann and her husband the other day...were your ears ringing as we talked about you?
You and Pogo have a good one!

Both versions of the roses are lovely and those snow people are just adorable.

Oh what a great shot of that tourist! Love that dog's face. absolutely!!!
Good you can walk a bit easier now, and a flea market always is fun. You can perhaps walk a bit, sit down for a little pause, and then continue your walk there.
Well, have a fun day with Su and Pogo and do find some great bargains!!

Fabulous portraits all! Love what the black and white treatment did to the portrait of roses.

I bet the dog's name is Winston. ;)
