Watermarks...and other stuff

I did some reading in the Etsy forums and decided I needed to change my watermark. I debated on even using a watermark as many feel that if someone wanted to steal the image it would be easy to remove. But my feeling is that having a watermark at least sends a message, that I claim my work to be mine. Anyhow new watermarks... and new work.

This weekend I walked my puppy down to the boardwalk. It's like a ghost town now, with it being the off-season. But I could still feel the energy I image it has during the summer. This boardwalk has been through some changes through the years. I once found some great historical photos online compiled by Daniel Ray Norris a local photographer. It's great to see what the boardwalk was like in it's Heyday. Much has changed and yet much has also stayed the same. When I saw this sign for Frank's Pizza surrounded by all the carnival bulbs, I thought it was a great image. I tweaked the color and the texture a bit to emulate those days gone by. Enjoy - I would love to read your comments!

Getting out of a rut...

There's something to be said for change.

I recently got my hair cut - short and with bangs - which is quite a change from my usual style. It was difficult at first to accept the thought, but I'm so glad I did it! First of all, it's so much healthier - but secondly it's spurred some other changes. My office at work has tended to be a catch-all for the rest of the office - items that need to be sent to surplus, storage for excess supplies and such. I finally got around to having one of my student workers clear it out and I tackled some projects that had been collecting some dust the past few months. I've been inspired to get rid of things I don't use and wear clothes I haven't worn (or get rid of them)! Last night I even tried a new recipe - and it turned out amazing!!

I know you're all wondering what it was...Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches and they were a big hit!

So in the spirit of embracing change...

Hello Again...

Well...I know it's been awhile. Funny how life can get in the way sometimes. If you've followed my blog in the past you are familiar with my Walk with Wednesday and Mellow Out Monday Features. Those photos started with a cell phone camera but I soon discovered that the more pictures I took the more I enjoyed it. My daily walks soon became about the picture possibilites rather than the activity of walk itself. I started playing with photo programs and manipulating the shots.

My husband and I recently moved closer to the beach - which has been amazing and has continued to feed my interest in this exploration.

I finally got around to working up a piece to post in my shop so I thought I would share it here as well. Please excuse the watermark...

I would love to read your comments!!

Thanks for visiting!

It was a Tango Tuesday!

I asked her if she could be any cuter...she said "not if I tried mom...not if I tried."

Walk with me Wednesday April 7

Welcome to walk with me Wednesday! I just love taking pictures this time of year - I feel like everyday the world looks completely different. I suppose that's true everyday of life if we really stop and look, but it's so much more noticeable during spring.

Thanks for joining me!
