Photo Taking

Wow, it's been since December 2009 that I last posted something on here. I often come back and find myself looking at all the thing I have posted about and man there is so much I have left out! The main one I will have to blog about is our trip to Greece for R&R this time around and one of Mom and Ron's visit to see us. I know, I can't believe they came either :) So happy they did!!!

So this post is going to be about my picture taking and a new photo editing thing I have found that does everything I have ever wanted a photo editing program to do, and it's easy :)
This is the first picture I ever edited the exact way I wanted it! It's from my garden in the back yard and just turned out perfect! A little zooming, croping, sepia-ing, removing color, putting in color, and smoothing out the petals is all it took! I love it!
Johnny Blayze, Love the little boys blue eyes and that tongue! He's so adorable!!!
Stop and smell the roses, oh wait, that's a poppy! Love the picture of my IzaBella acting like a little princess. She's got it down perfect!

While my Mom and Ron were here we went to a whinery in Vo, Italy and had some wine along with a tour of their grounds. We made a toast and this is what mom said and it's just stuck with me since then. Thanks mom for the may words of wisdom over the years. I'll be sure to pass them along to my kids!
This one is of grapes at the winery in Vo. Another great picture!

This one doesn't need any explination......

Villa Contarini....not sure where exactly this place was but it was incredible! The little canal in front of it just made it look that much more exquisit.

Ah, the boy. My handsome little Benjamin Blade who isn't very little any more. Amazing how fast they grow up and he just keeps getting more handsome every day!

Using the "spooky" effect on my editing of this creepy door up at the Piazza Della Vitoria here in Vicenza, Italy. It's georgeous up there! A great place to take some coffee and a book in the early morning!
This was my latest picture, at the Renissance Market in Thiene, Italy. They were posing for another person taking their picture so I thought I would get one too! Turned out great don't ya think?
So there ya go, a little bit about our summer in edited photos. I'm glad I have found my program and will be using it all the time from now on. Christmas pictures are going to look so much nicer this year even though we will be taking them ourselves. Now I can make them look good :) I'll try and do better at putting up more posts and getting all caught up on the cool happenings of here. (with Brandon gone there really hasn't been much more then work and our occasional trips away from the house) Once Brandon comes home there will be alot more!!!!!! Until next time :)
