I've been working all day on putting pretty blue skies in some R/E pictures. We just haven't had many pretty days over the last couple of months.
So, I didn't have much time to put my brain in gear and think of something exciting (I know, you haven't seen exciting yet anyway) to shoot.
The dogs get a biscuit every time they come in from the back yard (hmmmmmm is that why Lola is a chunky munky????). Eureka -- take a picture of the biscuit jar.

Actually, I took a picture of the biscuit jar so that I could try (like this is my 100th time trying) the pen tool in Photoshop CS4. I can't count the number of times I've tried this tool, and after a few minutes ran with my tail between my legs. This puppy is one hard tool to figure out. UNTIL TODAY! I found a great tutorial on Vimeo by Aaron Weiss. I watched the video about three times and the light bulb finally came on. If you've tried, and tried again to use the pen tool. Check out Aaron's video.
Well, I can't just leave well enough alone -- so I did my Photoshop thang and came up with this:
I know it's not going to win an award, but hey, I used the extracted biscuit jar!!!!!
Here's to the wonderful people who help keep my light bulb burning!!!
Have a great evening!
