Adventures in Coleslaw

I am taking Xanthe Berkeley's Creating Time Capsules course. (You can go here and sign up for the April session.) We are learning about video, audio, and stop action photography mixing with stills. This is my creation of the 1st project assignment.  It lacks the stop action photography but I plan on remedying that this week.

Just as soon as I pull out my camera the kids mysteriously vanish, so I get what I can, the dog and a cabbage.  I figure they won't put up much fuss.

I love the idea of mixing the different media to create stories.  It really gets you into thinking about your shots and photos, light and sound, angles and mood to get your story across.


Grandma's Camelia Bush

Grandma's old camellia bush is still here blooming be side Grandpa's old tool shed.  The only thing that is missing is her swing.

Sharing with Rural Journal on her 2nd blog hop, Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday (I used her Embrace Texture), and Emily's Tones on Tuesday (I used a lot of Image Adjustments from Photoshop).

Rural Thursday Blog Hop # 1

Burnt Hay Field

Rural Thursday is a new weekly blog hop where you can share what's happening around your place (rural/country/farm home).

On the way to work I couldn't help but notice the errie fog over the field they had burned the day before - very Carefully because of all of the swamp fires down here in the past year.  But to get the good hay, the fields have to be black before the can turn a pretty green.

Nothing can replace my Nikon DSLR but I've been using my Android Razr phone more and more withe the Retro Camera App because, as they say "The best camera is the one you have with you".  So I stopped and grabbed a shot.  I then processed this with Kim Klassesn's Simplicity and Plaster Squared Textures.

Along with Rural Thursday, I am sharing this with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday and Emily's Tones on Tuesday.
