A Wordful Wednesday

Down the roadish, there is a little town. Corrales, NM. One of the smaller towns in the area, but they all feed right into Albuquerque, so not that noticeable. Corrales is a bit of an artsy town compared to everywhere else around ABQ. I love driving down the main road. Which is really the only …

The Best of Week 15

It was hard to top last week, what with Easter and all. In fact, I didn't have any really amazing shots this week. I did go out today, though, and got a few to talk about. This purple flower is a desert plant. A weed perhaps. Lovely little purple petals is has though. I had …

Softness of Granny Smith Apple

Sweet Pink Tones Tuesday

Textured with Kim Klassen's Flourish and Grunged Up 2. Then I adjusted the Hue and Saturation bringing out …
