These two are from my practice in Photoshop 7. The lizard I painted from a photo of a lizard on the back yard fence, the black and yellow gobbledy gook was he struggle with learning text.
In the above shot, I took a photo of a ride at the fair one night and I attempted to make it glow, still need much more practice on this one.

Imagine our world if everyone had love for each other, no crime, no murder, no abuse, no theft, no divorce, no children in foster homes. On and on the list could go, But For The Lack Of Love.

These photographs were taken at Jungle Gardens, Sarasota FL. The first one above, is the first Filter I used under my teacher, Rich. I completed it on his computer and drove right home and did a few more.
Photographs are wonderful, but I love to change them and make them different.

He nagged me and nagged me to re-install and practice on his computer. I would go sit with him and he would walk me through steps. This is two of the first things I cut from one picture and added to another picture. I had Flamingos standing on a sidewalk, and mud flats with nothing in the picture. Voila A few weeks of fighting with it and I said, Rich I LOVE this, it is so much fun.

My Dad was the Pastor of a church in Kentucky that very much resembled this one that I found on the internet. From age 10 to 15, I spent the happiest years of my life in 2 tiny little Baptist churches in the great state of KY. The church had a piano, but not always someone to play it. That is when the auto harp kicked in. We sang all the old hymns and harmonized with that auto harp. When the movie ended, I pulled up my good friend YouTube. The is what I found.
Farther Along, on auto harp, the words are at the bottom of the post. Sing along, I did and AM. this is one of the songs my Dad and I did as a duet, many times.
I do realize Brad sounds better than the auto harp and some of you may never have heard one.

Night Blooming Cactus, also called Queen Of The Night, because it blooms only in the dark. Picture above was courtesy of my husband holding a flashlight at 4 AM, in order for my lens to focus on it in the dark.
The plants opens in the dark and the moment the sun rises the bloom droops more and more as the sun gets higher, by the next morning it is in full droop.
