You miss so much when you’re the driver. The sunlight, the animals, and what’s along the road. The farms, the rural landscapes, and the country wagon all pass us by, giving us glimpses of history. For a second.
There are certain things that can remind you of home. The smell of a warm candle, of someone cooking, and the laughter of family can bring it all together.
It isn’t always about what is received, but when the gift is thoughtful, it makes is special.
Just like so many of the cars we see in our community, these miniatures make us dream of the days gone by. When times were easier, simpler. Yesteryear.
This week we were to create an image using selective color. I thought about it all week and didn’t have any ideas. I thought I was going to have to take an image and create the selective color in Photoshop. But then, while I was making breakfast, it came to me. I hope you like it 🙂
This week we were to create an image using the zoom burst technique. It had just recently snowed. The lights in the yard were a nice warm glow. I headed outside to see what I could get. What I captured was a good zoom, nice color contrast and a acceptable composition. Sometimes, though, you just have to take what you get.

It’s rich. It’s rare. Well, not that rare, but it is smooth. The color says it all and once it begins to breathe, you can smell the richness. From the Pacific NW. Pendleton.
This week, in our 52 week challenge, we were to make an image that would represent a quiet moment or scene of serenity. To me, there is nothing more serene than a hot bubble bath. The room makes the experience extra special if it decorated in a calming color, like blue, to help calm you completely. So this is my quiet moment.
Everyone collects things, delicate things, toys, cars, and cans. Over the age of time, there are so many variations of beer cans that one could collect them forever, and have fun doing it.
