love notes...

"flowers are love's truest language"
~park benjamin~

It is almost the end of February and we are having the most delightful winter
Chicago has ever seen!  Yesterday the temps rose to a balmy 52 degrees
with abundant sunshine!  The days are getting longer and soon we will be setting our clocks back to Daylight savings time!  Yippee!
Dare i say it?....spring is in the air!

I am sitting here with my laptop watching The Bachelor.  Ben is down to three women, taking them to Switzerland.  I do not know why i still watch this show.  I really do not think that love can work this way...with all the cameras, the competition and in such a short time. I guess that my hopeless romantic side, always hopes that they find true love! 
I do so hope that he does not choose Courtney.  But i have heard many rumors that he does!  Oh, no!  But will she say yes?

My new all time favorite television show is Smash.  If you have not seen it, be sure to tune in.  It is about the making of a Broadway show...Marilyn Monroe.  I am not a big t.v. watcher, but this one has really captured my interest!

Today is Texture Tuesday the White edition.
  Our prompt this week is to photograph something white and use at least one of Kim Klassen's wonderful textures. 
Using the gradient map adjustment layer, i was able to desaturate my photo.  I always think that it gives it a softer look. 
Then i added Grey Slate texture on the soft mode.
I used Beyond the Rain script from DaFont.  It has become one of my favorite fonts!

Be sure to click here to see everyone's White textured photos. 
I hope it inspires you to pick up your camera and shoot!

Until next time...


  1. Beautiful image and texture processing. I also started watching Smash and love it...a wonderful plot is brewing :-)

  2. What a gorgeous photo. I also watch the Bachelor and I have a feeling he is going to pick Courtney.. YIKES!! I do believe he will get his heart broke once again!!
