Texture Tuesday: Love

“Love is a language spoken by everyone but understood only by the heart.”

For Christmas my daughter gave me the lovely designed tea cup in the photo below.
The handle is so expressive; the cup is wide and curvy.   My daughter knows me well.
She knew I’d love the cup, and she knew I’d want to create photos with it.

 Knowing someone so well, that you can find a gift that will touch their heart.
That’s LOVE.

The tea cup.

[Photographically Speaking] Day 4 “Vision and Blur”

Our assignment for Day 4 is: “Vision and Blur”.

I can get a fair amount of blur in my photos naturally, as I’m not always in focus! 😉

Today our assignment was to have a photo with a wide open aperture, and a nice blur in the background.  My regular lens doesn’t do that as well as my macro, of course.
The photo I took today was with my regular lens.   I softened the light from the window in the background with a light diffusing curtain.

The locket belonged to my grandmother who was born in the late 1800’s.   I thought the quote was perfect for a locket.

In PhotoShop Elements I added an overall texture to the photo at 51% opacity.   I also used a brush to add a bit of extra color around the edges and cut the shine of the chippy paint on the table top.

 Info: Nikon D300, lens: Nikon 18-135, ISO:500, 1/60, f/5.6
