A Pioneer Woman Photo Edit
It's midnight and Eldest is babysitting.
So instead of going to bed I decided to wait up for her.
She is probably being smart, and is fast asleep on their couch.
Grumpy mom tomorrow anyone?
So what does one do in a quiet house when everyone else is asleep?
Funnily enough, I decided to browse around the internets.
I hadn't visited Pioneer Woman for awhile,
so I decided to stop on over for a late night (early morning) visit.
She had posted the picture above, of her daughter and cat, and opened it up for some edits.
So I decided that if I were her, as much as I loved my cat,
which I don't, because I don't have a cat.
I think I would love my daughter more.
Cat lovers correct me if I'm wrong.
But I think I'm on the right track here.
And this is what I came up with.
While cat is still center stage, daughter is looking so serene and beautiful,
with those beautiful green eyes that match kitty's perfectly.
Here is a link to the other edits.
I was too late to include mine, but I think I rocked it.
I can say that on my own blog right?
And if I were being really truthful?
I would admit that I enjoy the editing of pictures
as much as the taking of them.
When I first realized the extent to which pictures were being manipulated
I was appalled.
But once I tried my hand at it, I was hooked.
It allowed me to stretch my creative wings.
While I am no painter;
when I am tinting here, and softening there.
I sure can pretend I'm one.
It is one of the newest joys I have found in my life.
It makes me feel like a for realz artist!
In fact I may have to change my name...
How does Michael Day-Nangelo sound?
If you are wondering where to give this a try yourself?
I used the tools on Picnik.
A free editing sight for everyone, unless, like me you've splurged a bit and for $24 have a pro account.
Try your hand at it and see what photos you might be able to add your own personal touch to.
It's a whole lot of fun!
Especially when you are waiting up for sixteen year olds after midnight : )
