Gosh, I've been up for hours, playing on my laptop and watching the shopping channel. I guess my nap yesterday was too good, because I wasn't able to sleep past 3 am this morning. It's 6:35 a,m, and it;s not daylight yet. I liked it better when daylight started around 5 a.m.
Last evening I was flying on cloud nine. The photo that I took of my yellow rose yesterday morning was published on Patriot Ledger.com. (our local newspaper) Let me tell you, my grin wrapped around my whole face!! The little buds won't be blooming because they look a bit frozen, but my rose is absolutely gorgeous! I think it delights me so because I have never seen one bloom before in my part of the country at this late date.
I think the cold temperatures are getting to it though. I'm not sure if I should pick it and bring it in, or leave it and see how long it can last. This was yesterday's photo.
Last night I also worked on my photo class lessons. Sad to say, I was not able to work with camera raw in Photoshop. For some reason that part of the program does not work and I will have to contact Adobe to find out what the problem is. The fun lesson was making bokeh. I photographed the lights on the Christmas tree, and made some really pretty papers and textures. I'll share those with you later in the week.
The photo on the bottom left corner of the layout was especially fun. I singled out one of the ornaments and placed it on top of a bokeh background.
Fortunately, it doesn't take very much to make me happy, so my evening was quite enjoyable. Except for the camera raw part (which I will learn eventually), I got carried away with learning new things.
Here's an interesting photo that I took on my way home from work one morning. I try to get a shot of the birds when they are flying in a huge flock, but I'm usually driving when that happens. This shot was taken while I was sitting a red traffic light.
While I've been sitting here writing, daylight occurred. Amazing, one minute it's very dark outside, then in a few minutes daylight happens. I think maybe it's time to make a cup of coffee, and think about cooking up some breakfast. Hmmm, I wonder if I have a green pepper in the fridge.
That's all the news for this morning. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
