Just this 1

I have told myself that I must take a photo everyday, and challenge myself and on and on, but I am realizing that this is not only not possible for me at this time, but silly for me to waste my energy on as well.   I do, actually take photos nearly everyday, but I feel I am waisting precious time consumed with editing, and getting enough photos etc.  Some weeks I may have the time.  Someday I may actually challenge myself.  But for now, I must let things go.  I must help my girls with their schoolwork.  I must listen to Kelsey's tales of faraway lands.  I must hold this baby tight.  And I must spend less time at the computer, and more time creating with my hands, more time at the park, ...more time making a meal.

I did play with one photo this week, although I took many.  I don't know if I have this one down yet, and this is a work in progress.  I think this photo has great potential, as it is just so sweet.  So, here is my one photo for the week.  


I obviously blotched my erasing here, off the sweater.  Still a work in progress, but I adore this crop!

I am very open to taking criticism here!  Ideas for editing.  I would love to know.

  1. So sweet. Besides that area it looks pretty good. I know what you mean. I have been trying to spend less time on the computer when they are awake.

  2. I love the photo and the texture adds a nice touch I think as long as your okay with not doing a photo everyday then thats okay with me. (or anyones else i bet.) Life is more important to live then to stress over it. ;)

  6. I totally understand how you feel. Sometimes, you just have to let things go so you can do the more important things in life.

    Love the picture you chose. I don't do much editing (not because I don't like it, but because learning how is one of those things I've let go), but you did catch the heart bokeh that I added to my window decoration picture. I wasn't sure if anyone would be able to see it in that collage.

  10. great job, I love your edits. what do you use to edit with? I use elements and can use a layer mask instead of an eraser and then if you "over erase" you can add back what you erased by using a white brush...not sure if that makes sense?
