Prickly Theme #229

Posted in Photography on October 21, 2011 by paintedmeadows

This prickly shrub is an Alberta Wild Rose bush.  In the spring it gets pretty, delicate, light pink roses and then the rose hips come after which are edible and make a nice tea.

From My Past Theme #118

Posted in Photography on October 19, 2011 by paintedmeadows

When I was a kid and we went to visit our Grandma and Grandpa Walker this quilt that Grandma made was always on the bed that we slept in.  When my Grandpa died I asked Grandma if I could have it and she (obviously) said yes.  We lost Grandma 2 years ago just before her 100th birthday and I miss her.  So thank you Grandma for everything!!  I feel your hug everytime we use this quilt.  (It fits a king sized bed by the way so not a small one.)

Unique Camera Angle #345

I was at a loss as to what to do with this theme.  So I figure most people don’t take a picture of the back of orchids so that is what I did.  I used PSE9 and Topaz B&W Effects to apply a filter but I am sorry, I can’t remember which one.  I really should write them down as I do it.  I’m happy with the way it came out though.  It was fairly monotone to start out.  The flowers are white and the wall is white so I feel this filter made it more visually interesting.  So now I am caught up and I will try to stay this way.  *wink*

Edible Theme #81

We had this dragonfruit for dessert last night.  Sadly it wasn’t as tasty as it looked.  Isn’t it pretty though?  lol

Seven Theme #258

This little ladybug with her seven spots was found crawling across my kitchen floor.  It is hard to shot macro of a tiny moving subject.  I am happy with the way she came out!

Laundry Theme #166

Posted in Photography on October 17, 2011 by paintedmeadows

After being inspired by another photography I decided to give laundry a shot.  I had no idea what to do so this isn’t very creative but these are all of the socks missing their mates.  Hopefully I will find them as I move through the huge piles of laundry that I have.  *sigh*

Symmetrical Theme #295
