I enjoyed playing with the storyboard that Kim gave us last week. I used several textures on this to get the look I was after "canvasback", "KK2" and "luminious". The tutorial for putting the colors in the swatches was very easy to follow. Fun project. I am sure we will see more than one storyboard used this week. Texture Tuesday keeps me creative, thank you Kim. Join us over at the Cafe`.http://www.kimklassencafe.com/
Which brings me to camping. It has been a couple of years since we have been able to get out camping and this summer we made plans to go in mid August. It seemed summer had finally arrived and we were having sunny days and lucky for us the sunny weather held out and we had 4 beautiful day camping and hiking in the gorge. I have to admit I have not even edited the photos from that trip so this post will be continued later. I will say that Brandon, my youngest grandson, Jacqui, my good friend and Harry, my boyfriend and I had a wonderful time camping. More to come later with photos of the gorgeous waterfalls we saw on our hike and a few stories from camp. Although, it might be that what happens in camp stays in camp. LOL.
The next thing on the list was my promise to do Senior photos for my grandson Tyler. The post above this one explains the story but to summarize, he asked me to help out a friend too so one afternoon we all had time and set out to photograph.
The boys were troopers, and seemed to really get into the spirit, that made it easy for me. I had been afraid they might be a bit shy and not want to try poses but that was not the case, they even came up with a few of their own. It was not the best time of day for shooting and the sun was very bright so we will be going out again this week later in the afternoon to try again. I cannot believe that Tyler is going into his last year of high school. I am very proud of him, he is on the honor roll and works very hard at his studies. He is also an awesome football player and I am looking forward to seeing more of his games this year. As a senior he will get to play more.
