A textured Friday . . .



"Everywhere water is a thing of beauty
gleaming in the dewdrop,
singing in the rain."

- John Ballantine Gough


Oh wow, I haven't even been out with my camera this week - I haven't felt well, which is why it's been a little quiet on my side of the pond. So, I finally went to the doctor and have a sinus infection, fluid filled ears and seasonal asthma! UGH!!  It's amazing what a couple of days of medication can do though . . . which is a good thing . . . because I'm not very good at doing nothing.

This week at Bonnie's photo art Friday the theme is liquid. So I went to my archives for a few photos with some kind of liquid and decided to have some texture fun.


This first one, dew drops on a weed stem . . . 



If you haven't noticed, I do seem to have a fetish with water drops. In fact I carry a small spray bottle in my camera bag along with an eyedropper . . . yep,  my big tip for the day!!

{Photo Art Friday and Foto Friday}


This one I textured with her new freebie, Blue Depths in overlay - just love how it complimented the stone wall but in a subtle way.





These are the same rose, different textures . . . the bottom photo has her soft sunset texture in 2 layers, both in overlay. Such a great painterly effect . . .

Short and sweet this week, I'm going to go take a nap now! ; )

Have a great weekend!
Love, Kim

These are all so lovely! But I have to say I REALLY love the one with the wall/water. Gorgeous! I'm so sorry you've been under the weather...it seems that's going around right now. So many people I know (including myself) are fighting off germs! Have a wonderful weekend - thank you for sharing your beautiful photo art.

Barbara said...

All of these are marvelous Kim, love the processing on them also.

Stephanie said...

Lovely photos - all of them - but that single drop of water is spectacular.

June said...

Hope you're feeling better very soon, Kim! Enjoyed your water droplets - great work!

Emily S said...

Very lovely! I love that painterly effect. Enjoy your nap!

Bonnie said...

Sorry to hear you have not been feeling well. Bummer!

As you rest (and balk at doing nothing) you can revel in the fact that you are just a natural artist. Whether with photography or photo art, I just come away feeling inspired to get out there and try to create something that reaches your level.

Love how you are using my textures, btw! Love your subtle touch.

Thanks for the tip! I have used a spray bottle but not an eye dropper and have not thought about carrying them in my camera bag.

So pleased you link you work with Photo Art Friday, Kim.

Pat said...

I like all these images. I love the subtlety of your texture work.

I'm so impressed by the details you captured on the second shot! it is amazing! I actually love all your shots today but this particular one is spectacular!

Marvett Smith said...

Beautiful images Kim! You are so good at the water shots. Absolutely beautiful!

P.S.- I hope you get feeling better soon. I hate sinus infections!

Amy said...

Oh wow... Just gorgeous! Love the one you entered into FotoFriday! the rest are so beautiful!

Kim, I read your blog every day as it comes into my e-mail but rarely seem to get over here to comment. THIS post required a comment! Just love each and every photo and what you've done with them! I've used a squirt bottle but I never thought about an eyedropper! Great tip! And those textures! Love them, especially the soft sunset painterly one. I went to her site and can't figure out which set that one is in. Do you know the name of the set? And finally, so glad you figured out what was making you feel lousy and are on the road to recovery.

Good to hear the medication is helping. Sinus infections are no fun at all.
Love the waterdrop photos. The one on the feather is awesome.
Speaking of awesome...those roses are fabulous.
