Playing with pictures

Maggie left this morning on the first stage of her journey back east. It’s been fun having her home and I’ll miss her company. I hope she does well and enjoys living in State College, Pennsylvania. Anyway took a couple pictures last night of the three girls. And then this morning, Bob and I went to the wild animal park aka Safari Park in Escondido. It was fun and again, I got a few pictures. Back home, did a few minor edits (touching up brightness, cropping, that kind of thing). It’s pretty amazing how much one can change a picture with a few small edits.

First are two photos from the fire last night.
Raw Photo

Enhancements to show the details


Next are some bird pictures. Before and After Edits



And a flower picture



The final picture is a search and find. Where’s Bob?

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
