The prompt this week for Be Still 52 was "Sidelight & Organic".
A friend's grandmother, who lives in Switzerland, used to make all her own linen on her home loom and many years ago my friend gave me this beautiful tea towel. I've always treasured it!
I gathered a few other things from around the house and added some bamboo from our backyard. Boy you sure have to be careful touching the bamboo, it can be quite sharp.
I used Kim's preset kk_organic, did an auto tone, brought up the contrast and added a graduated filter on the left side because it was a bit brighter than I wanted it to be.
Here are my finds for this week. We stopped in at a local store called the Cythera Boutique that sells used and new items and all the proceeds go to help women and children who are and have been in abusive situations. We like to support local charities.
On the first photo, I did an auto-tone, then used kk_chocolate with a bit of tweaking. Textured with kk_thursday. On the second photo, auto-tone, tweaking, kk_onair_lemon and textured with kk_return.
Happy Friday Everyone!
Sunny skies, 12 degree celsius, quality time with family, a Lensbaby workshop with Kirsten Hunter, trying out the Sweet 50 Lensbaby optic, a very colourful, musical and artsy carnival, all on Granville Island, made for a fantastic and fun February afternoon yesterday. Here are some shots I took. It was not easy getting shots as there were so many people there. I was amazed I was able to capture the seagull because there was a man teasing the the seagull just as I was about to take the photo. The photo with the shoes is a lady dancing in a puddle of water. The drummers were awesome and it was so exciting to see them in procession. The ladies in The Cloth Shop were so friendly and let me take a photo of the antique sewing machine. The teddy bear belongs to Kirsten and he travels everywhere with her and even has his own Facebook page (I do say a very popular little bear). Kirsten is Lensbaby's Director of Customer Happiness for Canada Sales & Training and is excellent at her job! When Lensbaby says "Customer Happiness" is important to them, they mean it! I am looking forward to adding the Sweet 50 optic to my Lensbaby Collection. Please click on the thumbnails to see the larger photo.
