Macro This

Don’t you love the beauty of nature? The summer flowers are flowering in winter.

I won’t be able to write for 3 days, sigh, but I’m nearly to the halfway point on SEAL Wolf Team to the Rescue. Hopefully, I can finish it this week!

It’s like writing a Macro Novel. A novella. So much fun.

Have a super day!

The Winter Blues or Summer Warmth

I could say I planned this. It’s what you can call creative license. Or…I could admit I forgot to change the White Balance setting from incandescent to sunlight.

I was wondering why my first photos were such a pretty blue! But just think, you can do this too! For…an artistic change! Or…not.

Hope you are enjoying your day! I’m off to get something done!! Reached 60K! Twenty to go. When it gets down into the teens, it’s pumping fist time!

Have a wonderfully warm, sunny, blue wintry day!

Ready for Valentine’s?

I was playing around with curves and such to change a picture I had taken of a peach rose into a lighter more pastel color. This rose has many colors naturally, pinks and peaches and yellows. 🙂

I write about love and HEA, so I’m always ready for the hearts and flowers! But more than that. The love that abounds every day. Because one day isn’t enough to say I love you.

Okay, off to write!!!

Macro Shots and Being Sick

Macro shots of a rosebud, waiting to see if it will warm up, and another that is trying to weather out the cold, and of ice in the fountain.

I finally gave in and went to see the doctor. Had to get a shot, on antibiotics, steroids (for good muscles), and cough pearls. Now, antibiotics can make me nauseous. So it’s a necessary evil, but, I’m not looking forward to this. They said not the flu, no sinus infection (tell that to my sinuses), but my lungs are raspy. Yes, I could hear that. Did I feel short of breath?

Well, given that if I did anything, or didn’t do anything, I was coughing my lungs out, and my sinuses are so congested that I can’t breathe and I’m not doing much of anything…no. If I tried to walk a mile, maybe, but I would have figured that’s because I can’t breathe and I keep coughing.

But I really went in to make sure I didn’t have a sinus infection.

Now, the steroids and antibiotics can make you throw up. The cough pearls can make you lose your mind (says that in side effects, not making this stuff up) and make you sleepy. The steroids will keep you awake. I’m only taking a cough pearl at night when I’m trying to sleep so I won’t cough all night, though I couldn’t stop coughing last night anyway. And there’s a reason for that. I need to get rid of all this congestion. So if I lose my mind in the middle of the night, I’ll hopefully have it back by the time I wake up. I won’t miss it until then.

As to the steroids (only 5 days of them, so one day down), I need to stay awake all day anyway, so I can work. The throwing up part doesn’t work for me though. Sweating? Restlessness? I can deal with it.

But hopefully, I’ll begin to see an improvement soon and be back to my normal self!

Hope everyone stays well!!! And has a great day!

Photo Enhancement Fun!

This was a beautiful multi-colored rose in a bouquet my son and daughter-in-law sent me for Mother’s Day, and the first thing I had to do was water the roses down, and then take macro pictures of them to share.

But lately, I’ve been reading up on photo enhancement. I kept thinking it all had to do with the camera and the photographer. Some of it does. But look at what I did with the rose with some photo enhancement tools? I’m such a novice, but I thought it turned out pretty neat. What do you think? It might be a little grainy, but I liked seeing the color in the petals and they are grainy! 🙂  Or else it’s just all blended. 🙂 Plus the colors were more vivid like the real flower was. 🙂

Okay, I’m back to writing on The Highlander! 67,000 words done!!!

Have a super great Labor Day, if you celebrate it!!!
