It is texture Tuesday again with Kim Klassen. Our challenge this week was to photograph something related to "two" and apply her beautiful textures.
Today was a bleak day here in chicagoland...no rain, but no sun. I found myself outside even though it is cloudy and damp, just trying to soak up the remaining outdoor weather while i can.
I so dread the winter with its bitter winds, heavy snow and cloudy days. The cold just seems to settle in me.
I went for a walk with my daughter and my doodlebug to take some pictures. Even though Jake is only nine months, he has learned to sit patiently while i do my photography...what a good doggie!
We headed for the Japanese Gardens just down the street from us in hopes of finding something i could photograph for today's prompt...two.
I was planning on taking a photo of two leaves, but as i walked i came across a rose bed with some bright red roses still alive! The colour caught my eye right away. I just loved these two beautiful roses against the dried grasses in the backround. It was perfect for today's prompt.
I applied Kim's new texture, Phoebe, using the soft light blending mode at about 50%. I then applied her CrackerJack texture, again using the soft light.
I played around using the text tool in PSE and added the beautiful quote from John Keats.
I found that if i looked around i could still find such beauty among the fall decay!
That sure made my day!!

Until next time...
