After 9-11 everyone was donating money. This lovely handmade wall art was made by a local artist. It is hard to see in the pictures but she uses real earrings and bows and the material is different silks. I was the high bidder at the auction and it has been on my wall every since. I love the way she did the faces on the women.
I like the way this shot turned out in black and white, the sun filtering through and the play of light on the stream turned out pretty nice. When I saw that tree over the stream, bending to the current it seemed, I knew I needed a photo of it. But the color wasn't right, this is I think.

Looking out the back window I saw a cat stalking something. So of course I had to check it out. The cat was stalking these large turkeys. It ran up to them and they barely looked up to see what the cat was up to. They towered over this small cat. It ran around there legs awhile and took off before I could get out there with my camera. The turkey are so sure they are able to handle anything they didn't run when I came out either. Neither the cat or I scared them away from the feeders. Ugly birds but cool feathers.
1. Take a picture of a heart. Could be something that is in a shape of a heart or small objects making the shape of a heart, a man made heart, not human..... BUT remember is should be something that you would like to see framed in a collage, so a human heart might not work....Ü. Lighting is essential, & clarity is also important. So make sure you use a tripod, or steady your arm on something , so you don't move when you snap the picture. If you don't have enough light, use a flash or take it outside. Filtered sunlight is excellent.
