Lemons


I bought some lemons.  The lemons were for my Be Still 52 assignment which was to create a still life photo inspired by a still life painting.  After I took photos for the assignment, I took a few more photos that I liked better and thought I would share them today with Texture Tuesday.  


My still life photo (below) for the Be Still 52 class didn’t turn out how I had it pictured in my mind.  I need to find a different glass pedestal, this one seems crooked.  I thought it was sitting crooked on the wood paneling, but no, it is just crooked.  I didn't see this until I was trying to edit the image.  I guess that happens sometimes.  


I have some very exciting news… my little brother (he is 39 years old) and his wife had their first baby last night… it’s a boy.  I am so happy for them.  I can’t wait to take pictures of baby feet.  I love baby feet.  

Today I am joining Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday and Be Still 52.  The still life image was textured with Kim’s textures dessert_2b, cecile and waterfront 7_magic in screen mode for the canvas texture.  I kept playing with layers until I felt it looked like an old still life.  The other lemon images were textured with Kim’s texture gift and the top one has a layer of waterfront7_magic also.

Thank you for stopping by!!
Have a great week!!

  4. Well congrats on the new baby, lucky you!! And your lemon shot is gorgeous, just gorgeous - to be honest I didn't even notice the pedestal, but I know I would have if it were my photo. (it may just be you need to turn it next time to a different angle)

  5. How wonderful! A new baby in the family. That's always a special time. Your lemon photos are beautiful. If you hadn't pointed out the pedestal I wouldn't have noticed. We are our own worst critics, aren't we?

  19. How exciting for your brother and his wife! How wonderful to have a sweet baby boy! I really enjoyed your lemon photos. It's interesting how a different perspective can change the color and light. I like the imperfection of the pedestal. It's real just as the lemons are real. It would have been fun to see the painting that inspired you also! Enjoy that new baby, Michelle!
