I Remember Water - Photo Art Friday 20 July 2012


I'm continuing to experiment and learn and discover, sometimes, HOW TO DO what I did!! I know that when I put on my Big Girl Panties and really give PSE8 a fair shake, I will surely have a result I can say I got by DOing this and then that and this other thingie... For Now, though, I am learning by DOing and having an idea that I try out and that's what this is.


I have another blog called 366 Daze of Grace where I have each day of 2012 posted one of the gazillion and seven photos I have taken of my dear Golden, Gracie Mae. This past week I have been venturing back to 2009, during our move from Arizonie to Florida, partly BEcause I found one photo in there, the one I started with here, that just seemed to tell what I think you might see if the "lights" went on in her wee brain.


My girl LOVES the water, whether it's the muddy of Dry Creek after a summer rain, the Pacific Ocean, Lake Tahoe, a lake out BEyond Philadelphia, where this photo was taken, or her new love, da beach, less than a mile's walk from home. I tried once again to put one photo over another and then another and then adjust the opacity [BIG WORD!!] and while I am hoping that "making a BEautiful mistake or 4" will eventually bring me to digital fiddling nirvana, I'm actually pretty happy with this For Now Result...

What a joyous collage of your sweet Gracie. I like the top photo of her running through the water and then the one in the bottom right hand corner with the goggles on. How cute is that. So happy you are enjoying experimenting with your photos and different effects.

Lovely composite! It's so much fun to watch dogs play in the water.

Gracie is beautiful - both in and out of your collage! I had a beautiful golden called Silken. Thank you for sharing your art work with Photo Art Friday, Currie.
