Rough Theme #247

Posted in Photography on September 29, 2011 by paintedmeadows

This is the front side of one of my favourite old buildings across the road from our house.  We are fast losing leaves here and everything is getting brown.  Snow isn’t far away I am afraid.  The falls are beautiful but too short and the winters are cold and too long!


Isolation Theme #160

This lone pine tree is surrounded by a sea of poplars getting ready to shed their leaves.  I think it must feel isolated.

Ordinary Theme #210

An ordinary clover looking maybe not so ordinary.

Fast Food Theme #99

The fast food we all should eat more of!

Scattered Theme #252

These heron or crane (not sure which) scattered off the wheat field just as we drove by.  I thought they looked beautiful against the orange sky.

Garbage Theme #125

Posted in Photography on September 24, 2011 by paintedmeadows

I really didn’t know what theme to use for this.  It is a broken garden tool that I am thinking of using as an ornament in my garden.  There are 6 different themes I could have used but decided garbage was the best for 2 reasons.  #1, I didn’t want to take a picture of gross food garbage or the dump which we make regular trips too and B (that’s for my hubby, tee hee) I wanted to show that sometimes garbage can be recycled or repurposed into something new and unexpected so sorry honey, this ain’t heading out with the garbage.  lol

Fences Theme #103

This view is taken from my back deck, across the side pasture to the canola field across the road.  I love all of the colors that our trees get but those leaves won’t last long.  *sigh*  I used PSE9 and Topaz Adjust 4 to adjust contrast and add a Mild Details filter to bring the colors closer to what I see with my own eyes and also to bring the fence out more.
