Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene Lake Superior in the Fall

Taken years ago about mid October but it reminded me of a winters day with the cold winds whipping off Lake Superior.  All the tourists gone.  So Serene.

Some of my family trying to keep warm that day.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental Fun!

I love playing!  I only wish I had more money to waste on all the creative software out there.  I have not tried animation software but my Microsoft PhotoDraw has a very few animations on it at this time.  Once Microsoft stopped supporting it, the 3-D no longer operates with my newer Windows.

The following are various experimental graphics and animations with PhotoDraw.

Layered storm clouds, headstones and faded flowers called “Forgotten.”

One of my favorite stories from the Bible. It is quoted in a Charlie Brown’s Christmas describing the Birth of Christ. Bust of Angel surrounded by scripture with enhanced corners.
Luke 2:9-11

Used the same cropped flowers with softened edges on either side of another cropped lavender with bee photo over background with french text.

Had a picture of the cropped moon fade and scroll right across sunset for solar eclipse.

Animated “Forgotten.”

Daily Prompt: Mushroom

Found some mushrooms in a beautiful Fairy Garden one evening.  Magic Mushrooms I think they call them.

I just happened to saute some button mushrooms in butter yesterday.  I cook them the same day I purchase them so they are fresh and use them in various things such as sauces, soups or even by themselves.  I like adding them to egg drop soup and pumpkin curry soup as well as to my spaghetti sauces.

After knowing supposed mushroom experts that poisoned themselves when using kinds they picked themselves, I leave it to the markets for mine.  I don’t eat mushrooms all the time nor do I eat the wide variety out there.  Sometimes I don’t eat them for years at a time til they catch my fancy again.  Depends on what I plan on cooking and if any fresh are available.

Onions, Mushroom, Zucchini, chick peas, sauteaud in butter with various Mediterranean Spices of your choice sauteed in olive oil.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Temporary Summer

Shed no tear!  O shed no tear!

The flower will bloom another year.

Weep no more!  O weep no more!

Young buds sleep in the root's white core.

John Keats

Even more temporary than the flowers that bloom are the hues of Autumn.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Take a Peek at Psalm 23

Visual walk through the 23rd Psalm, one of my favorites.

Daily Prompt: Please Don’t Faint

Luke 18 1 yellow treesChildren of God, please do not give up.  Stay strong in the Word & in truth & always practice what you preach! 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge & Daily Prompt: Ghoulish & Rounded

Both will pertain to the autumn and Halloween that some celebrate.

I love to decorate for fall adding a few old time Halloween touches throughout, as cheaply as possible of course.  I wait to get my pieces in sales, sometimes from clearance the year before.

We will start out with emphasis on curves such as the altered glass plate from Ikea I hang in front of the lighted trellis.  The roundness of pumpkins, gourds & squash prevalent this time of year and various decorative items.

Now we come to the “good stuff.” The ghoulish or macabre. Not my cup of tea but many like this stuff, especially around Halloween.

 

One of my sons LOVES Halloween and really goes all out each year.  This is him as the crow and that is his own hair, no wig.  The other videos are some of the special effects that he uses.  Enjoy this very “ghoulish” display if you dare!

Enjoy my PhotoDraw animated slide show for Halloween fun!
