The theme for this time is "Blurred Vision". It was a toughy for me, since to me, the subject matter in photos is supposed to be crisply in focus unless showing motion, so I took it figuratively and went a different direction. Here are my two pics for "Blurred Vision":
"Christmas - Religious Holiday or Commercialistic Extravaganza?
(As an aside: It kills me how Christians get so upset about the commercialism side of Christmas while the non-Christians are so bugged about the religiousity. My philosophy is easy: take what you love, leave what you don't.)
See what I did there with the blurred motion thing? Also, going without a nap, or worse yet my grandbaby going without a nap, gives me blurred vision. ;)
The next four don't follow the theme, and the first two of the four are altered reality, meaning I photoshopped the crap out of them ;)
"Grandma's Little Angel"
I watched a tutorial and learned how to turn a photo into a pencil sketch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K43-_zhQZiM
I also watched a tutorial about turning a photo into a cartoon here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1dOa2XO3js
The next two are original, non altered pics, but the theme is completely open, so everything goes.
"The Light of the World"
For this one, I followed this tutorial: http://themetapicture.com/simple-idea-awesome-result/
"Peaceful Morning Moment"
I love moments like these!
Now I can finally relax! :)
