Texture Tuesday – the Gratitude Edition

Thanksgiving Day is past and gone, and rarely celebrated here in Australia, but on the Web it is still being used as a theme for numerous things.  Kim Klassen has suggested Gratitude to being the theme for this week’s Texture Tuesday, so here goes.

I posted this one earlier on Shutter Sisters Flickr group for their One Word project, but it fits the bill with a change of wording.   This image was processed using one of Kim’s Textures and a preset from Radlab while I had a month’s trial.  It was to express my thanks to my family who gave me this camera 12 months or so ago, which has opened my eyes and led to a whole new world of challenges, friendships and fun.

The following are my two faithful canine companions,  both are rescue dogs for whom I am eternally grateful.  They will never know, but I would like to express my gratitude to their previous owners who, for whatever, reason no longer wanted them.  Also of course, to the dogs themselves – they are the best, loyal and devoted of friends  and I’m lucky to have them.

Maggie has been processed using Kim’s textures: Phoebe, Blue Bayou and Canvas Back in different blending modes and opacity.

Bella’s photo also uses the texture called Phoebe, plus two from Shadowhouse Creations: Raggedy Paper and Grab Bag.

  5. Your capture of Bella is an absolute “smiler”! Such an image is spectacular as I know how difficult it is to coordinate–through the ball, hold the camera, call the dog, focus … a challenge to be sure. Nice job!
