Photo Art Friday - March 30, 2012

It's Friday and time once again for Photo Art Friday over on Bonnie's blog, Pixel Dust Photo Art.  - Bonnie has a cool FREE texture over there so be sure to check it out. 

This week the options were: Any piece of Photo Art or Path/Roads
I chose Path for my piece.  I knew right away what I wanted to use.  I had taken a picture of a Path leading into the local library last fall and thought it looked pretty cool so I decided to go with that.  The problem was I couldn't seem to locate it on my computer.  After searching for about 1/2 an hour I finally realized that the photo was probably still on the old computer as some of the files did not get transferred onto the new computer.  I finally located the file and transferred the picture to the new computer so I could get started.

Below is my original photo SOOC:
It's an (okay) photo but seemed a little dismal looking. Yes, it was an overcast and cloudy day but I thought it needed to be brightened up a little so I did a bit of editing at PicMonkey (Very similar to the soon to be gone Picnik).  I liked how the edits turned out and then I wanted to add some sort of a quote - (Yes, I have a thing for quotes ) that would be appropriate for the word Path.  I finally settled on one and you can see the final result in the photo below.

Be sure to stop by Bonnie's blog and check out the other entries. Also send Bonnie some good vibes, prayers, words of encouragement as she has not been feeling well the past couple of weeks. 

Big Hugs to you Bonnie and Prayers for a speedy recovery.  Thanks for hosting this fun challenge every week and for offering the great textures.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

  1. The mid-centuryish feel of this image is very appealing. Have you thought about playing with the colors to mimic and reinforce that style?

  10. What a lovely path...and it leads to my favorite place! I could live in a library (self-confessed bookworm here). I also love quotes and collect them. Yours is beautiful, and so true! Thanks for sharing. :)
