Being Easter Monday, I think I can still have time post my "Happy Easter" blog. Every year our local Osprey Village puts on a wonderful "Spring Fling" on Easter Sunday and they always book us to entertain for their event. Thankfully after the weather forecast called for rain, we were blessed with only clouds and every once in a while, the sun peeked out and helped brighten the event. I am always amazed at the parents who will stand in line with their children, sometimes it is an hour or more, and wait for a balloon creation. They also do the same thing for face painting. Yesterday the line up was quite long and we ended up staying an extra hour just to make sure every child who was waiting for a balloon received one. Needless to say we were quite tired when we got home so we are having our Easter dinner this evening. Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend. We sure enjoyed ours even though we worked yesterday.... it is always a joy to see happy little smiling faces, especially on Easter Sunday! P.S. For those of you who do not know, Jim and I own the Click & Clown Company and we entertain for parties and events!
Now back to photography! Awhile ago my very lovely and dear friend Ann Davis sent me the sweetest and beautiful handkerchief along with some other wonderful things. I waited for Easter and Spring to use the handkerchief in my photos.
The other day our granddaughter was doing some crafts with lunch bags and she says to me.... "grandma, you can use this one in your photos"..... how could I say no.
These photos I took on Saturday and used the Nix software in my editing process. I don't know what the branch is called so if you know, I would appreciate it if you could let me know in the comments. Thank you!
There is just something about the "parrot" tulip flower that takes my breath away. This beautiful purple one was from Floretta Flower Studio & Crafts. In the second photo, I love how it opens up to look like a parrot. Even though it is in it's wabi-sabi state, it's beauty still shows.
These are Icefield Double daffodils and the texture is one that I made.
Just one last photo with some pretty ranunculus also from Floretta. I have always used my wooden board for top down photos.... this time I decided to try it standing up in the background.
