Travel Theme: Spooky

At the start of October I said I would be trying to turn photos into spooky for Halloween and hadn’t got to many. I had a look back through my photos and found a few that turned into spooky for Halloween OK. And the travel theme is appropriately spooky too. I love it when you can be efficient and cover two jobs with one action!


Travel Theme: Spooky

I am reblogging a photo I edited of my baby W to make him a zombie for this week’s travel theme: spooky. Now I need to go and look through my archives to find some more good possibilities.

Learning the Light

In honour of Halloween I said I would try to make normal images appear spooky. I wanted to start out with something that you would be hard pressed to think of as spooky. My baby is the least scary thing I can think of. I still feel a bit weirded out looking at him zombified, but its all in good fun and I just won’t look!

Travel Theme: Animals

All of these animal photos appeal to me because of the textures I see.

Hiss. Not sure what else to say except he is LOOKING AT ME!!!

A few of my other favourite animal photos. Sorry for any of you who have seen them before, The first is the image I use for the header of my page. Its a pelican (my favourite bird).

The second was the opening shot I did for my September Macro Month/Post a day Challenge. I found this little guy in my garden. Caterpillars aren’t generally welcome, but this photo got this one a stay of execution. Lucky him.

Travel Theme: Foliage

I love to hear people’s thoughts or comments so when it was suggested that I give the Travel Theme of Foliage a go I thought, “Sure, why not?!”. It was night at the time, but there is nothing like the present so out I went into the COLD. My neighbours no doubt thought the crazy lady on the corner is out there again with her camera, standing on her front door step pointing the camera up toward the sky. Frame no good…step back..check…frame no good….two steps left, bend top half to the right, cock head to the right slightly, click…frame no good…repeat, 1 step to the front and half a step to the left with a slight knee bend…got it…hooray! All in a dressing gown and Ugg boots that look a lot like Santa’s boots with red laces. Hmmm…the neighbours are used to it now. Probably didn’t even blink.

Our Cedar tree is MESSY! It is just coming to spring and these berries will all fall onto my garden and sprout mini Cedar trees everywhere. My 1 year old likes to eat them, they taste sweet. You can see the beginnings of the flowers starting to bloom. Soon the tree will be covered with tiny white flowers that look like confetti and the spring breeze will make it “snow” in our front yard. The flowers will be replaced with small leaf sprouts that will grow on stems that also fall in Autumn. It is not what you typically think of as foliage, but it is what adorns our tree at the moment and for all its messiness I do love the shade its foliage provides us in Summer. It provides a shady place for the boys to play in the sprinkler or for me to sit and watch them ‘help’ me by watering the garden (themselves!)
