Random Thought:

"The darkest nights produce the brightest stars"

Saturday, June 1, 2013


I am seriously obsessed with this tree.  It is across the road from my house in the neighbor's horse pasture.  I take several pictures of it.  I'm thinking about making a book just about this tree.  The other night I was getting ready for bed and looked out my skylight and the light was awesome.  (I know I go to bed with the chickens, but my kids get up before daylight and by 8 at night I am done)!  I just had to run down the stairs in my pj bottoms and flip flops to take a picture.  As you can tell, it was partly cloudy, and the tree was illuminated in the setting sun light.  It looked so cool.

Of course I am never satisfied with sotc pictures, so I had to play on photoshop a little!  Here, I blurred out everything but the tree, and brightened the color.

I'm kind of digging the black and white these days, so after blurring and brightening the color, I made it all black and white, and added a vignette (the darker ring around the outside of the picture).  Now I just need to decide which I like the best!

Have you heard this song?  It is my absolute favorite song right now.  So I have it on repeat and am going to listen to it until I can't stand it anymore!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  I'm trying to get back into the blogging swing of things!

  1. I still like the straight out of the camera shot :) And I have been listening to Kasey Musgraves' whole album on Spotify and love the whole thing!
