Today's Texture Tuesday prompt was 'DREAM'. The very first photo I thought of was one of my sunsets in Grand Cayman. If there is ever a cause to dream, that's the place to dream about. layered the original photo with Kim's 'golden hour' & 'dream' textures. Then I added my own text--Dream.
My next thoughts on dreaming were of my daughter's African photos. I would love to go someday.
An African adventure is on my 'bucket list'. My daughter was kind enough to allow me to use her photos for the TT challenge this week. Here's the first one I altered. A gorgeous sunset.
I used Kim's 'golden hour' texture again and added the text. It was almost too gorgeous a photo to alter. I tried to just enhance it a bit. Make it a bit painterly.
The next 2 sunset shots have NOT been altered in any way. My daughter took some amazing pictures.
I love how the sun looks as though it is sitting on top of the little tree.
Just love the silhouettes that the trees make.
The leopard above was within 4 or 5 ft of my daughter who was sitting in a jeep. Great capture. I duplicated the photo, changed it to b & w, then masked out the leopard in the b & w layer to recover his beautiful spots! Otherwise he sort of blended in with the golden yellow of the grasses. Such great camouflage.
She took so many photos while she was in Africa. But I have to say that the big cats are my fave.
This little guy above had just finished eating and then walked over to within 3 ft of their jeep and flopped down for a rest. Isn't he gorgeous? I layered it with Kim's 'stained linen' and 'golden hour' textures.
Even though the big cats are my fave, I just had to show you this baby elephant.
He is too cute! I thought at first he was trumpeting his horn, but she said he was sticking his snout up in the air to smell them. I layered this photo with Kim's 'stained linen' and reduced the saturation a bit.
Maybe next time I will show a few more photos of her trip to Africa. There is a great shot of a zebra as well as a giraffe and the biggest cat of all the male lion.
Until then....live your life creatively & always carry your camera~
