Round Robin Photo Challenge.........Summer



kmh 2004


This is my entry into the Round Robin Photo Challenge hosted by Carly at Ondinemonet and Karen at Musings from Mavarin. Below you will find a link to the journal now dedicated to the Round Robin and below my short essay is links to other participants........come join the fun and enjoy the talent of J-Landers.

Summer represents to me the greening of the world again.......after a dormant gray winter,  life comes back with a vengeance. The dance of the butterflies return to the late afternoon sky and flowers explode with every color, the lushness of a dark green carpeted lawn and the canopy of green leafed trees to cool the hot summer sun. Summer represents surviving another long cold winter and a new chance at becoming a better me.  

This is a photograph that I shot a while ago and I decided to play around with my photo editing software.  It ended up having a painted effect but it's was just a lil smudging or streaking of this color into that color. I'm liking how it turned out so much I might be matting and framing this and adding it to my bedroom wall!

What a BEAUTIFUL picture.  I love the effect you gave it. :-)  I have summer entry up in my journal.  I wanted to use my tall ladies but, was to eager to wait.  So, I used something else from that warm summery day. :-)
