52 of 2013 - Week 26. Picaboo's theme for the week is 'Summer Photography'. My Focus 52 - Pixel Project theme is 'Spheres and Orbs'. I don't really like this collection of photos. I like them individually, but together, it's not working for me. Ah well, here they are, my summery photos of my girl posing for me, her new running shoes (purchased the last week of school, because we just could not have one more day in the previous shoes), a paperweight that fit the 'orb' criteria and a close up of the bubbly fun inside the paperweight. The last shot is, I'm told, a peony tree shot from a tree in my backyard. I don't like it. I don't hate it. But I don't like it. The tree gives us these weird round balls of 'might be fruit' that turn into these not so lovely looking, and downright horrid smelling flowers that attract large flies. It has to go, but I just can't be okay with the idea of 'getting rid' of a tree for those reasons.

52 of 2013 - Week 25. Picaboo's theme for the week is 'Understanding Contrast'. My Focus 52 - Pixel Project theme is 'Cloning'. I think I've covered both topics with one photo again. I cloned out pink sock monkey's tail. It was a little bit of white that looked more like a bunny tail, coming out to the left of the pink monkey. Edited with Photoshop to clone out the tail, and sharpen. Edited with PicMonkey for the Urbane Filter, which I'm terribly guilty of over-using.
Taken with my Canon PowerShot G12 (the fancy point and shoot), edited with Photoshop and PicMonkey.

52 of 2013 - Week 24. Picaboo's theme for the week is 'Manipulating Color with White Balance'. My Focus 52 - Pixel Project theme is 'Delicate Photography'. I think I've covered both topics with one photo. I'm not sure what these blossoms are. They are very fragrant and the bees are in love with the blossoms on the trees and the ants are in love with the ones that have fallen to the ground.

52 of 2013 - Week 23. Picaboo's theme for the week is 'Mastering Composition'. My Focus 52 - Pixel Project theme is 'Playing Catch Up'. I don't know if any of these three capture the themes or not. I must be covering one theme or other in playing catch up. I just liked these shots. So here they are.
