Tuesday Again

This week's theme for Tuesday Texture is story.  So many different directions this could go.  But I thought this photo told the story of last week, especially when you add Kim Klassen's Texture "More Magic"  (Once on Screen 100%, and once on Soft Light partially masked off in varying degrees.)

The snow did get deeper than it is in this photo and we had a lot of love, joy, laugh, peace...as we all stayed home together.

If I liked textures more on people, I might have chose this picture to represent our week.
Instead I'll use it for Tones on Tuesday :) 

Scattered Horizons

On Saturday we were finally able to escape the house.  We got home just in time for me to meet a friend for dinner...and for me to drag Huckleberry into the spot of sun for 10 minutes of photos.  He was not terribly pleased, and I did not get the exact shot I wanted, but still I think it is pretty sweet.
We cut his hair after I saw these pictures. 
Sweet Shot Day
I hope you have a fabulous Tuesday.  I actually have plans so I won't be sitting around home obsessing about paperwork and things I can do nothing about so I expect it to be a great day for me -- playdate with friends and photography class in the evening.  The snow was fun and being with my family was great, but doing things...that is good!

Linda said...

Your photos of the kids always inspire me to try to capture those kinds of shots with my grandkids...then reality steps in and I realize they are absolutely not going to cooperate - yet. They are still very young, rowdy boys! However, I continue to dream...thanks for the inspiration and the joy I always get from your photos. Oh, and BTW, the texture on the fence is great! Love the shot.
