I noticed the reflection of an old church in the windows of this modern building in Vienna.  I love the contrast of the wavy lines in the reflection against the straight lines of the building.

Ice Cream...

Is there a child in the world who doesn't love ice cream - I think not!  This adorable little boy and his grandma sat at the table next to ours in a sidewalk cafe in Vienna - I couldn't resist snapping this photo.

The Mad Hatter...

We were watching some folk singers perform in Budapest and along came this woman.   I watched her for quite a while. She looked like she was trying to make up her mind - should she stay and watch the entertainment or not?  Where would she sit?    She did stay - sat a few seats away from us.  I took a lot of photos of her.  I love her hat and sense of style.  I could never pull this outfit off in a million years.

Texture added over top of my original photo.  Mouse Over to see original.

Keeping It Simple

It's amazing how something as simple as a brown paper bag can make a photo look special!

Some gourds and a pumpkin from our local market.  I made my own bokeh brush in PSE and added it to the photo.

Flowers in a water glass placed inside the paper bag and tied with baker's string.  Two versions of the same bag shot in different light.

Here's looking at you kid...

My husband and I drove out to Koreshan State Historic Site in Estero FL this afternoon.  We found this gopher tortoise peeking out of his hidy hole.

Here Comes the Bride...

Saturdays are wedding days at St. Stephen's Basilica in Budapest.  We saw quite a few happy brides making the rounds in the square.

Since it was a an overcast day, I added a Naples, FL sky to brighten things up a little.

"Dive" texture courtesy of Kim Klassen added overtop of bride's photo.
