Linking up with Faith at Simplicity, Laura at Blogging From Bolivia, and Maegen for the Sunday Creative. Three fabulous blogs to check out....hosted by three lovelies.
I don't usually combine my posts, but today it just made perfect sense. I do love me my macro/close-up shots courtesy of Laura....adding them to Faith's vintage theme and Maegen's extent prompt.....well it's all just a pretty little unrelated package that somehow is working in a relational way. There I did it. I actually used the word relational in a sentence. My best friend will be so proud. She's big on relational, and I'm working on the growth thing. All in good time.
Here are my photos that make this work:
I know there are ways to make photos look vintage with textures and such....unfortunately I've yet to figure out what the recipe for that is. Thankfully I found these vintage keys extending from an entry door while I was out yesterday. Later I added a Kim Klassen texture that had the word vintage as part of it's name hoping I was on the right track. Kim wouldn't lead me astray...that's for damn sure.
I really love it when the things I need to fulfill prompts and challenges just appear. And even more wonderful, I didn't look at the keys and think..."oh this is vintage extending from a doorway I'll take a close-up"...I just got jazzed 'cause it seemed like a cool shot and later realized how relational it was. I love that. I'm such a photo nerd-but I'm going with that. The sooner we all realize that we're all nerds the easier it is to march on. I'm way off course here, but thanks for listening.
We've had a LOT of winter weather this year (bitch, moan, $%&@*, blah) but there are benefits. Yesterday the sun was shining and I took another wonderful ski in the afternoon. I left myself just enough time to shoot some photos in the last hour of light in the afternoon. This pretty icicle was extending from the branch of a pretty snow-covered Maine Christmas tree. Too pretty not to catch. It isn't vintage, but it's fulfilling my other two photo needs.
Please feel somewhat sainted if you've read all I blabbered on about today. Much appreciated and have a great day.
