Ghosts From My Past.... 2004



Bradenton beach,  8 miles from home

In 2003 I bought Microsoft Digital Image 9 software  and after a year of playing, I discovered I could change people and animals and birds into GHOSTS.... I spent many happy hours creating them.

Pond at Oscar Scherer State Park Florida

No the cougar was not alive, to see where and how I found it Click HERE

Hillsborough State Park Tampa florida




The backgrounds I used are all near by state parks and one of our beaches. all these photos taken with Kodak Easy Share. Before DSLR Rebel.

I remember where you found the cougar. I can understand why you like him, that face is amazing. The combination of the ghosts and background make for some great photos.

Wow Sandra, that is so excellent, and it makes me wondered how many things we think we see? Are they real or are they like what you have done here????

It's getting to be the season for ghosts. But, I guess ghosts are out all year 'round.

My goodness - at least they are not real ghosts! And they are so beautiful. I especially like the cat ones.

I have a questions - I have been working for two days on my header picture. I am trying to get it like yours - all the way across the top and I just can't figure it out.

Wow!! What some amazing and beautiful creations. You have some talent sweet lady, even with programs unless one has talent they cannot create works of art like these. Hugs!!!

Gail said...

That is very cool. I have photo shop and the book is bigger than the Bible so I can do none of this stuff. Crop, that's the height of my photo changing abilities.

You always have something fascinating to share.

OMG! I love this - all of them! Am also thinking it would be a great way to pay tribute to those who have lost furry loved ones. Thanks for the idea. Now if I just had MadSnapper's talent! :)

OK, these are very cool and since I'm off for a whole week I may have to try and do something like this. If I waste an entire day in front of my computer I'm blaming it all on you....lol
