We have a new extra credit Challenge going right now:
Another Creative Challenge-COLLAGE
The Self Portrait Challenge seemed fun & successful, so I wanted to add another this
week. Again, you can enter anytime you want.
The collage can be of anything...you decide, post it on your blog, come back here &
leave a link. You can add a little explanation on what you did & why. PLEASE
follow GUIDELINES (use permalinks). Like the last creative challenge, there will
be no judging.
I have posted these collages in past entries, years apart. I won't make you go back through the archives to find them, I am putting all three collage examples up here for this extra credit. I have done other collages of sailboat regattas, too, but hey, that would just be overkill, LOL.
I saw in another entry on this Extra Credit Challenge some editing techniques that are new to me and I want to spend some time learning how to create in a similar fashion. Don't be surprised if you see more collage samples in the future.
This is the first collage I ever attempted with my digital camera which, at the time, was a Fujinon. I was inspired by our newly acquired kittens.
Most of my long time readers have come to know about our cat Emmie and the special bond that developed between the two of us. This collage was inpired by Emmie.
This final collage was done over two years ago to demostrate the process of removing huge items of debris that gets trapped in our marina from time to time. These items, if left in the river, would prove to be a danger to any boat. They are hard to see and easy to hit.
I wish I had the time right now to experiment with the new techniques I have observed, but I must finish two loads of laundry that are both in progress and get ready for a road trip tomorrow.
Paulette has to attend a training seminar in Athens, Georgia, about a four and a half hour drive from here. I have taken a few vacation days to drive her there. I will take my PC with me, (the hotel advertises wireless internet), and my guitar as well as my camera. I'll amuse myself each day while she is in her training sessions and I hope to return with some good photos. The hotel is on the grounds of the University of Georgia, so I am gauranteed some interesting sights right off the bat! We will return home on Wednesday. For all the thieves and burglars out there, Sandy will be remaining at home. (Just kidding J-Land, I have more trust in you than that, LOL).
If you see a guy on a street corner in Athens, Georgia over the next few days playing guitar with a cup on the ground in front of him, toss in a coin or two, it could be me and you know what the price of gas is these days. (WINK)!
