It's Tuesday {Almost}

Time for my favorite Tuesday links.  I cannot think of a way to link these but I want to share them.  There is no theme and it feels so random, so lets just call them all sweet.
And really what is more sweet than my baby girl with her gardening gloves unless it is...
...her picking "flowers."  I used a vintage preset in LR3 for fun.
I love this sweet boy, too.  (And their brother, but no photos of Huckleberry today.)
Sweet Shot Day
Now here is a photo I took at the beach a few weeks ago.  I really liked it though I couldn't tell you why.  It might be because it fits the analogous color scheme The Kat Eye View of the World taught about this week in Exploring with the Camera.
Blue and green being next to each other on the color wheel means this photo has analogous color, right?  So much to learn, so little time!
Then two flowers for Texture Tuesday.  Actually, two flowers with texture, but only one uses Kim Klassen's texture.
Kim Klassen Aurora 100% Soft Light; Turned 180 degrees (I don't want to tell you, but you might notice the upside down words.)
I had waited a little too long to take pictures of the flowers I got at the Farmer's Market.  Thank goodness for PSE and textures.  Sorry you didn't get to see the pretty orange flowers we bought!
kimklassencafe
Pure Love Letter Texture with Scrolls (from Pure Photoshop) 100% Soft Light masked off of flower. 
This is one of the photos that didn't get chosen for Sunday Scavenger Hunt's liquid, but now that I've edited it I might actually like it better than the chosen one.

Be sure to check out the links to see more sweet shots, explorations with a camera, and textures.  There are lots of incredible art to see!

Wow what a feast for the eyes this morning . . . I can feel the love shining through the pics of your daughter . . .priceless . . . and I love the texture work on the flower shots, beautiful and in keeping with the subjects and no, I wouldn't have noticed the upside down lettering if you hadn't mentioned it :-)Have a good day Teresa x

Stunning! I love the portraits of the kids, but those flower images are art! Wow. The message on the texture in the last shot is just perfect for the photo.

We have the boy version of those little gloves. :) Gorgeous shots...especially the blooms! Love that take on the color wheel, too. Really creative, my friend!

Seeing Each Day said...

I really enjoyed looking through your photos - the 2nd picture is quite emotive. And your textured photos, I am looking on with envy! I'm a phototest kitchen member of kim klassen's too, but just a beginner, I would dearly love to be able to adeptly add textures to photos like you have. You've dome a wonderful job. The aurora texture you've used here is one I've used before and really loved.

I think you start to master the camera - the flowers looks like real ones we could even touch and feel on the screen.

I am upgrading them from sweet to super sweet. And flowers are superb. I really like your take on Ka't prompt this week. I have been trying to shoot something all week and seeing yours just opened up a whole new world of possibilities.
