I joined Kim Klassen's 2nd Beyond Layers or Beyond Beyond or Beyond II....I am not sure how to refer to this, but you know what I mean, 2nd class in her Beyond Layers series. The first one was a year long, and I do believe this 2nd one is the same length. I started out with a bang the first time around, but then slowly began to skip a week here or there...shame on me. I always have such good intentions, but somehow I always get off-track. Kim gives such great instructions, I encourage anyone that wants to know anything about layers/textures in Photoshop/Elements to take one of her classes. I think she even has a couple of freebies to get you started.
Well, this time around I didn't even get started with a bang, again...shame on me. But I am catching up and here was our 2nd assignment. To take multiple pictures of the same subject at different angles, points of view and then pick 3 of my favs and make them into a collage. She even provided the template for the collage and ofcourse instructions on how to do it. Here is mine...remember my little jar with the chalkboard label from Anthropologie....so many ways to use this sweet thing. And by the way, I totally blame Kim for all my purchases from Anthropologie (I dropped a few dollars there last Saturday) with all her talk and beautiful cups she tempts us with. And now it is on my radar.
OK....you haven't seen one of my selfies lately. I pooped out on the last 2 weeks...the 1st one was a silly pose (I don't do silly well) and the 2nd one was in the dark...I just never came up with anything showing me in the dark. I just seem to be in the dark most of the time anyway, shoulda just taken any ole pic...but that's not what they were going for. So this week it is a dyptic...2 photos that make up a whole in other words 2 parts of your body...any part or parts. That I could relate to...so here is mine. I know, silly me. I probably could have used this one for the silly too....whatever!!
And today is the 2nd week in Madge's Rurality...a new link-up that she started last week due to a couple blog sites dropping their weekly memes. It seems like many of us enjoy the rural parts of our lives even if we do live in the city.
This rather plain white barn was again in DeKalb County...don't ask me exactly where, I never know, I just drive and shoot, shoot the camera that is. I have never gotten lost in any of my wanderings, the roads all seem to be squared, follow one, turn left, turn left again and you end up on the same road you started on. Life is so much simpler in the country, at least roads are anyway.
And because yesterday was Abe Lincoln's birthday another Abe quote....
