Fix it Friday

 I Heart Faces is one of my favorite sites. Every Friday they post a photo for you to edit. It's a great way to work on your photo editing skills, although I haven't had the time to play in forever!!

Here's the original image which is already an incredibly beautiful photo.

 I lightened her skin tones ever so slightly and added a bit of gossamer blur. Didn't really make much difference. 

Added a bit more punch by enhancing the colors.

Then converted it to B&W

                                                        And then Chocolate!

It was so much fun playing with this image. I really can't decide which version is my favorite.....I love them all. The original photo was already perfect....and it's hard to improve on perfection.

Visit I Heart Faces to see more edits!

Happy Father's Day

It's Father's Day tomorrow!! My husband has always been an amazing father and friend to our children. I'm so happy that they all have wonderful memories of growing up with a daddy who took the time to play with them, listen to them, hike in the woods with them. He was a fun dad, a firm dad, and a COOL dad!! He always took interests in the children's hobbies, whether it was building rocket ships and launching them off the farm quad, or riding motorcycles on the trails or the track. 
My hubby is very much a *gear-head*kind of guy,  but this year he is getting one of the coolest hi-tech gadgets available. I know he'll love it~

Enjoy your day honey!

Weekend Fun

We went to the mountains this past weekend for a Street Rod show. The weather was a bugger. Had two days of pouring rain & two days of sun! The car show is a 2 day event, filled with contests, music, a parade and Show-n-Shine.

Every block of this lovely little mountain community was decorated with beautiful bronze sculptures created by local artists.

Afterwards we did a little sight-seeing, exploring and some hiking.  The mountain streams were still raging with winter run-off! 


We took the tram up to the mountain top and spent the afternoon hiking around. Many of the trails were still covered in snow, but we still found plenty to see at 8257 feet!! The views were spectacular, and Yeah, the air is a little thin up there!

We were surprised to see these little chipmunks running all over the place. This little guy was so curious about my camera and just sat there on my lap watching me for the longest time.


Finally decided it was time to share a bit of our lunch with them!!


Sometimes huffing & puffing around 8200 feet is worth it!!
