The Christmas season is almost upon us, and I am sure that most folk will do a Christmas themed image for this week’s topic…….I’m not much enthused about Christmas for a variety of reasons, so my image this week was made as a Birthday Card for a friend who celebrated his 77th birthday recently. I wanted a masculine looking card, and my gift to him was the bottle of Glenfiddich in the picture – not very original, but really what do you give a gentleman of this age, who already has just about everything he might need!
This photograph has several of Kim Klassen’s textures added to it, but unfortunately I did not make a note of which were used. Silly me!
I have spent yesterday and most of today in the garden – taking macro shots of any insect I could find. This little caterpillar was one – it was about 3/4 of an inch long, and very active! This one has been layered with Kim’s texture Dusty Rose, blended using Multiply at 75% in PSE9.
Remember the song? Originally sung by Danny Kaye in the story of Hans Christian Andersen, and then, of course by the characters on Sesame Street.
I shall post some of the most recent macros tomorrow – more caterpillars, some very very tiny, and some insects I photographed.
