Sometimes, I get a little too busy to share all the goodies that find their way to my mailbox, so on this exciting Saturday night as I get a jumpstart on laundry, I’m stealing a moment to share the beautiful notecards swap-bot Sharp Shooter “Midteacher” sent to me a few weeks ago. These were sent for a “Red, White and/or Blue” swap hosted by one of the group founders, Lou. She hosts a color-themed photo swap monthly.
Isn’t this a beautiful bundle of cheer to find in a mailbox? Check out the detail of the raspberries! Midteacher edited the two photos on top in an app. I love the linen fabric treatment.
I played around in an app with two of the photos I sent to my own partner for the swap.
You might be familiar with famous Cajun artist George Rodrigue‘s loup-garou, better known as the “Blue Dog.” There are three of the “dog” sculptures in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Gardens at City Park in New Orleans (there’s also a yellow one). I edited these two in the Waterlogue app which was an obsession several months ago. I think I like the app because it makes me feel like an artist. 😉
Here’s another of my “Blue Dog” modifications:
Only the dog kept his color. These photos were shot three+ years ago. Frankly, I’m not crazy about any of “dog” photos–original or modified. If I were to capture them again, I’m sure I’d take a completely different approach.
What’s red, white and/or blue in your world?
