Playing Around with Photoshop–Otters, Sunken Boats, You Name It!

otter-standing-up-looking-at-me-sunken-boat-9003-otters-water-fountains-900-043I added the sunken boat for interest. This was the most curious otter of the three. And here all three are. 🙂

I was going to walk, but it started raining, then the warranty guy came over for the annual check, and then it was way too hot and muggy. We had a chance of more rain, but nothing happened. It was only 81 out, but 99% humidity and that made it feel so much hotter.

marbelized-wolf-purpleI hope, if you picked up A Very Jaguar Christmas, you loved it! 🙂

dead-pine-tree-001Woohoo, they’re going to take down my dead pine tree! It could have cost me around $1,000, but I’m so thrilled they’re coming to take it down for free. That’s the housing development. I had told them right away that I thought the tree was dying when I moved in. Thankfully. It’s been green up until a couple of days ago. But initially, every time it poured rain, sap poured out of the tree. Then it began losing bark. A few days ago, tons of bark was scattered all over the lawn. And then a couple of days after that, I looked up, and all the pine needles were dead. It’s sad. It’s part of an old forest, but probably with all the construction around it, the roots were killed back. I have five others, but they all seem to be fine. Anyway, I’m thrilled they’re going to take it down before it comes down in a storm. It’s about 100 feet tall.

Off to write.

Have a wonderful day!

Exercising More than Just Once–and Photography Find!!!

I decided I needed to take one dog at a time to really train them to behave while I’m walking them. One barks, the other barks. They both pull. So I took just Tanner because even though he’s my barker, he does stop to listen to me. My goal was three-fold (I do better if I have lots of goals, lol)–well, 4-fold: Take a dog for a walk, get some exercise, retake pictures that didn’t turn out yesterday, and train said dog to behave while walking. Plus, I figure if I exercise, I’ll be more productive.

NOT happening. Why? I get home and I’m dying to play with my photos. lol But, I did write more last night, so maybe it helped. I don’t know.

But, I was so excited when I started my walk.  I made a real photography find!!! Not one, not two, but three otters were playing in the fountain pond closest to me. I couldn’t believe it!!! So, I took a ton of pictures. It was early morning, so I’m still fighting with how to set my camera, and I need to get some filters to cut water glare. I’m learning.

Soooo, some turned out, and I took a picture of the fountain again to catch the rainbow that I had wanted to catch yesterday.

I wanted to take a picture of a small waterfall and capture the blue flowers in front of it. So the waterfall ended up being this beautiful bokeh.

I took Tanner to the kiddie park, no kiddies there, so he got to sit on the playground equipment, but he was too interested in sounds around him to bother paying attention to me. 🙂

tanner-on-stairs-to-slide-900I have a guy coming over to look at the ancient 100 foot pine tree in my yard that had just died. Hopefully he can take it down before it comes down in a storm!

Have a wonderful day!
