Orange You Glad It's Friday #39




Hello everyone.  I hope you've all had a great week.  Mine has been "crazy" nothing major just a lot of frustrating things to deal with (calling insurance companies is such a pain!  I was "on hold" for 45 minutes on Monday), sick cats to deal with, road construction detours, waiting in lines for ever etc....you get the picture.  So yes I am glad it's Friday!

Time to share with OYGIF  I have 2 pieces today.  One is SOOC (Straight Out of Camera) with no editing.  The other was edited by adding a texture and a quote.  I hope you enjoy them.  Click to Enlarge.

Some Gerbera (fancy ones) Daisies in my mom's flower garden.  I thought about adding a texture to this but there was something about the photo that I liked just the way it was so that's what I went with.

Below is the "original" photo.  I am amazed how some cropping and adding some texture can change a not so great photo into something so beautiful.  The texture is from Lenabem-Anna (#168) and can be found HERE:

See what I mean.  This shot is not so great but the final edited version takes on a whole new life of it's own.

  1. Wow, wee! I never liked those texture things much before, but you really did a great job with this!!! It looks like the Wizard of Oz....magical!!! You just made me want to learn how to use them. I downloaded one before, but couldn't figure out what I was supposed to do with it. Are there online instructions that go step by step, I wonder?

    And your first picture is perfect just the way it is...so pretty!

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful, safe, fun and relaxing holiday weekend...and I hope those kitties get well soon! They've been sick too long now!
