NEW VIEW OF OLD PICTURES.


If I Were Judith... this would be a real painting.

I have always admired paintings like Judithheartsong's but my expertise is limited to fingerpaints so when I discovered the many different tools available in my Paintshop Pro I went crazy and turned just about every picture into a water color.  Of course if I were an artist I'd probably be striving to get my paintings to look like a photograph.  Theres just no pleasing me.


The Accidental Portrait

I gave up on this picture as soon as I took it several weeks ago.  It wasn't until this morning when I opened it up and cropped the center to enlarge it that I discovered the bee who had been buzzing around while I had been taking pictures.  Of course, if I had a camera like Sepintx's you'd be able to see up the bee's nose! Maybe if I'm good for the rest of the year Santa might bring me a macro lens.

<LOL> Isn't it funny, I just got the camera and already I've been looking at lenses I want. I think this could be an expensive hobby if I let it! Hope Santa brings you what you ask for

Gorgeous Pics, Dorn!
I love coneflowers. I always mixed the pink coneflowers with purple lavender and white daisies in my garden back North-it was beautiful.  None of those beauties grow down here:(
Yes, Steven would be able to look up the bee's nose, LOL!

Cool entry.  I often find surprises in my pictures as well...things I didn't see when I took them.   Haven't been on your journal for awhile but it's still as entertaining and beautiful as always!
