While I was taking a break this weekend, what we were doing as a family was visiting parents/grandparents. We stayed in McDonough, GA for a couple of days and while we were there, we visited the Veterans Memorial Park. It’s a great place and you should check it out if you’re in the area. The veterans working in the museum always have interesting stories to share and the ones we’ve met have been friendly and helpful. Today’s gallery doesn’t come from inside the museum but rather outside of it. There’s a fabulous collection of contraptions that were probably used in the early 1900s (how long they were used is anyone’s guess…) and they present a wonderful series of photo opportunities. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed editing them. If you want more info on any of these pictures, or if you’d like to download them…

Star trail of the Orion constellation during the peak of the Orionid Meteor Shower this morning. 130 x 30 second shots merged together in Photoshop. The fuzziness is my lens getting condensation on it. No meteors were captured. :(

Not posting this weekend

Good morning/afternoon/evening (where ever you are in the world),

I’m not going to be posting any pictures this weekend. I won’t post any of my pictures of the day until Monday evening/Tuesday morning. I will be taking pictures and process them as if I’m going to post them but I’m not getting online to post them.

See everybody next week!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

An excellent picture of “Man’s Best Friend – Coffee” interpretation…

Just a short post. I’m taking a break this weekend and wanted to get in today’s art project. I decided to try painting with coffee. Let’s just say I need more practice. I didn’t like the final painting as a painting so I snapped a photo and made a nifty edit with Pixlr Express. What do you think?

"Man's Best Friend - Coffee" ~ If you click on the photo, you can see the photo on my deviantART page and if you really like it, download a digital copy or buy a print. :)

Day 289 of my 365 Project

The reason for the black and white pictures the past few days is because I was challenged on Facebook to post black and white pictures for five days. I’m also in a group on Facebook and participants are to do daily art challenges. I incorporate all three challenges (picture of the day, black and white challenge, and daily art challenge) into one final creation. Today’s challenge is man’s best friend. This is my interpretation of it – Soulmate.
