Today is the 29th day of 31 Days of Capturing Blessing-turquoise is today's color:
I am not sure why the angular shaped earrings look green. I tried all the color tricks I know of to get them to show their turquoise color, but none of them worked. The earrings are lying on a scarf and the item the triangle earrings are leaning on is a headband that has a bit of shine. The band is Blessings.
Recap of week 4-Purple:
My medieval/renaissance/wearing for other occasions dress. The skirt flares and twirls nicely. I admit that I still like twirly dresses and skirts just as much as when I was a little girl.
Another summer, another mint plant that started out well but burned up in the sun. I have learned in this area that any plant that says it needs 8 hours of sun a day needs to be in partial shade. I had this in partial shade and still it burnt. The cherry tomatoes did well though and they were next to each other.
I took this shot with my phone (Sony Xperia Z1s) outside an antiques store. I liked the curves and lines of the varying iron work and the fact that the wall has beige tones in it. I could have also used this shot for copper and brown, but have other things in mind for those shots.
I got this potpourri pot as a gift for my mom. Fourteen years ago this Friday she went into the hospital and on Dec. 7th, Pearl Harbor Day, died. My father who is usually not good with dates has not forgotten that day as he is a WWII buff. I haven't either and even if we wanted to, we can't as that is such a significant day in U.S. history. Not Dec. 7th the next year but Dec. 7th six weeks later. She never met Blessing.
This rose is coral color, but thanks to using the circle adjustment (like the eye drop tool in other areas) in LR 5, I was able to make parts of it hot pink. I don't have earlier versions of LR, so don't know if the HSL (hue/saturation/luminance) panel has that targeted adjustment option in those. I do like the way this rose turned out.
Every Tuesday I participate in Texture Tuesday, so some of my photo prompts also have textures on them. It just so happened that my cat, the blanket and the texture and overlay I chose all had traffic gray in them, so fit the prompt quite well.
