Journey of a body on this earth


Garin Park (Gallery)

Here are some photos I took while walking around a cute little park about 35 minutes from here.  You never know what you will find!  Please click on the gallery and scroll to see sharper images.  Thank you!

I’m posting these and then once again going to rest.  My eye is still twitching badly.  😦  I have a doc appointment tomorrow.


One Photo Focus – March 2016

For those of you who don’t know this challenge, it consists of everyone editing the same photo taken by one person.  Below you’ll find my image as well as the original image provided by Nancy Merrill.  Thanks much to Nancy for this image!  Please do check out Stacy’s blog when you have time to see everyone’s submissions.  It’s always fun to see everyone’s edits!

Lately I’ve seen a lot of photos superimposed on car sideview mirrors, so I thought I’d go with it.  I happened to have a photo taken on my iPhone while sitting in my car, but with cherry trees in the mirror, so I superimposed Nancy’s photo into the mirror.

Basic Process (it’s so simple it’s embarrassing):

  • Opened my iPhone photo in Photoshop.
  • Masked out the image in the mirror where the cherry trees were.
  • Added a layer underneath containing Nancy’s image.
  • Added some colorization on the entire thing via Nik Color Efex.
  • Voila!
