Photo Art Friday 30 November 2012

I am NOT entirely sure how this will work... I DO know that it's been great fun for me to put it together. 

I am still so new to "digital fiddling" and exploring what is possible that attempting to pick my "best" or my "favourite" for 2012 was a little BEyond my grasp...

As I considered this week's invitation from Bonnie, I thought this little movie would show more than I think needs telling.

I BEgan this blog, 366 Daze of Grace, with high energy and great determination bright and early on 1 January. I have posted to it Now for 334 days. I am astonished at all I have learned just making this part of my Daily Practise.

As 2012 unfolded I branched out and BEgan to explore then participate in challenges like Photo Art Friday, and I have felt welcome, encouraged, and always more hopeful.

I enJOYed looking back through some of the 334 photos. I can see that I will spend some time digging deeper and ultimately pulling it together over the next 2 months. The part I am puzzling with is, DO I tweak the earlier photos or DO I leave it as an unfolding, a process that grew me into someone who is growing daily?! MayBE some of you will have a thought on that to share with me...

I hope you'll enJOY the "movie" made on Picasa then uploaded to YouTube. I'm still NOT 100% clear how this works so I am taking a test run first...

[okay... it seems to work. I didn't try to figure out about adding music and I don't know why the last slide disappears so fast, but it is what it is and I am tickled to realise what I have done in 334 days...]

Haha - that was wonderful! I've got my cover - but you're well on your way to your whole book! So sweet, and so lovely...
Wishing you happy Holidays!

Well, you just flew right past me ... I don't have a clue how to make a slide show for You-Tube. And, I loved it ... I love your dog and the way you love your dog, because I have a dog I love the same way. You really hit home, Currie ... great idea, great post ... See how you have grown!

Oh Currie, she is so adorable! What a gorgeous soul companion you have there, and great shots of her too, I loved your little movie, I too began video this year, so much fun! Thank you for sharing them :)

Bonnie said...

Wonderful view of the life of a beloved pup! I really like the image of your dog standing in the water.

My vote would be to leave the majority of your images alone ... and move on with your acquired skills to new edits. That way you see your progress!

I so appreciate your participation in Photo Art Friday, Currie.

Dear Currie, I can't decide which is my fave. They are all so precious. Oh, I don't have to decide??? Thanks so much. Give Grace a kiss for me.

Great idea to create the video, Currie - I enjoyed watching it. Lovely images, too. I think my favourites are "goggle girl" and the one with the deer.

See you in the new year!

Great job Currie. Love the little movie! Casey swims all the time too, but I never thought to buy her swim goggles :o) LOL

So, you have your book - 366 Daze of GRace. What an adorable dog (I miss my Gacie so much) she is!

Monica said...

You almost have a book here, Currie! I also enjoyed your little video! Great work!

Wonderful serie! Wonderful art!

Leovi said...

Definitely excellent photos, and very nice with excellent colors.

Kim Stevens said...

Yep, it would be so hard to pic a favorite! And I agree with Bonnie, I would allow to show for your progression. You could always go back later and fiddle with them. But If your gathering them together for a project I would let the journey of them speak for themsleves.

Loredana Donovan said...

I absolutely love your dog! The image with the sunglasses is super adorable!!! :)

Thoroughly enjoyed your video about Grace, Currie. What a beautiful soul she is. As I have two dogs, I know how they help us to just BE because they are that way all the time.
