Photography & Photoshop



I love this East Texas country cat hiding in the tall grass. She follows the ancient blueprint hidden in her bones that calls her to do what all cats everywhere have always done — hide, slink, hunt.

The polaroid effect was a Photoshop action. Here a click, there a click, everywhere a click, click. Done.


Here’s the original photo. You can see that you can change the mood of a photo just by how you choose to crop.

  1. I love what you do with your photos. What kind of camera do you use? I currently only have a point and shoot camera but am dying to get either a Cannon Rebel or a Nikon D90 or any of the D models. But alas I am poor do to the boy child. Oh well he is worth it. 🙂

    How is Sean doing in K? Is he liking it anymore? Also what happened with the tally marks?

    Nikon D80, a selfish splurge last year that I do not regret. I love it with an unabiding and utmost affection. But I would also totally dig owning a Canon. Can’t go wrong either way.

    You can get some great shots with any old point and shoot. It’s more about composition than having an awesome camera (although that helps). And these days, even ugly step-sister shots can be turned into Cinderella with cheap/free photo editing software. There’s just no excuse anymore not to have great pictures.

    Sean is liking kindergarten. I finally convinced him to go with the base 5 tally marking system. Like his mama, sometimes he’s just a little too creative for his own good.

  2. Love this photo. It makes me want to take photos… maybe I can! I’m rather poor at point and shoot even, but surely I could learn. Such a neat wat to journal life.
