It’s easy to find beautiful natural settings around here, without needing to travel very far. I read about the Cascades at Lake Mohegan in Fairfield CT and went there for a walk today. With blue skies and temperatures in the mid 70s (~23 °C) it was the perfect day to go exploring. Many people were out walking their dogs and enjoying the day.
This week’s Think Monday – Think ATC challenge was “Script.” I know the focus was supposed to be on the actual writing (script), but these words from Revelation drew a vivid picture in my mind. However, I don’t think I captured it successfully. Also, I created this multi-headed dragon but I’m not happy with my end result. I used several images to create it and morphed pieces together, but it didn’t come out too good. I need to practice morphing images together or find a tutorial on how to do it.
This week’s 4x4 Friday challenge was “Observations” which meant Open Theme. I wanted to make a multi-headed dragon but I’m not happy with my end result. I used several images to create it and morphed pieces together, but it didn’t come out too good. I need to practice morphing images together or find a tutorial on how to do it. I used medieval illuminated manuscripts for the background images.
Well, he’s not really a tiger cub, but he looks and acts like one. This is the new addition to my family. He weighed 1 pound 1.5 ounces when I got him and my vet estimated he was 6 weeks old. He’s a flash of energy but he’s also a cuddly purring machine. He’s 9 weeks old now and this Friday he gets his first shots (vaccines) which will probably conk him out for the remainder of the day.
This week’s Theme Thursday challenge was “Buildings.” I had this old book drawing of the Hartford CT State Capitol so I used it and added the state bird, state flower, and a reference to the Charter Oak.
This week’s Mixed Media Monday challenge was “Past Loves” where the theme is something you used to like to do, but don’t do much of anymore. I loved going out dancing. I went out any opportunity I got. Unfortunately I haven’t done that in awhile. One great dance song currently on the radio is “I Like It” by Enrique Iglesias, whose lyrics I used in this.
