About Me

My photo
Thank you for visting my blog. When I started this blog, it was just the vehicle for which I had hoped to share photos of our life in Chicagoland with our loved ones, but it has turned into so much more for me. Life is ever evolving in our household and time no longer stands still. Every moment is precious and worthy of being captured and treasured. In addition, through my love of the camera, I have had the opportunity to meet and also capture moments in others' lives. It is my hope, with this blog, that when my memory fails me, the words and photos on this blog will remind of where we were. History...Through My Glass...

lensbaby...and footprints

I realized that I had not posted any pictures from the free seminar I went to in November with the Bogen Cafe. I found this picture that I took using the lensbaby lens that they were promoting and I didn't really care for it at first, but now I really like it. I'm not sure I used it correctly, nor do I think I'll ever buy one, but it makes a neat picture...especially with the antique preset in LR, which am loving!

Here is the original.

I also learned how to add a texture to pictures. I re-did one of the Michigan Dunes pictures with a rust texture.

Here is the original.
