Wanted to participate in Sally's Blue Monday AND play with "Picnik", which is a photo editing site that offers a free download you can use to jazz up your photos!
So took some photos of the kitchen/dinning area that wears a lot of red, white AND blue during spring and summer.
One of my favorite pieces is this old, milk-painted blue cupboard that we use for storing canned goods. Also, makes a nifty resting place for these old crockery bowls.
I confess I am one of those grandmas who, normally, would have several photos of her grandchildren on this side of the frig......but every once in a while I clear it off....so for today, at least, you can see the cool Dad's Root Beer metal chalkboard advertising sign sans photos!
I like the Picnik cropping tool but I'm not sure I totally understand the brightness option. I love the drama that can be achieved by cropping! See the photo below for the BEFORE cropping......it so easy to eliminate stuff you don't want to show and to highlight what you want to showcase!
For those of you who have been using these tools, this is old news, but to a relative newbie, like myself, it is so much fun to experiment with these tools. I think the end result is so much better, visually, and I've only begun to explore the possibilities.
No blue, actually this red and white photo was another opportunity to play with Picnik...more cropping fun!
I use a point and shoot Olympus that takes a decent photo, but it could be better, so I am hoping to improve the quality with these programs BEFORE I rush out to buy a new camera.
Hope you enjoyed my red, white and blue world and my photo experiments.
In addition to Blue Monday, I always love being a part of
