I love new things.......

This week I have been on a massive spending spree.......

A little naughty I know, but I have bought so many great things, including these:

and my new quilt cover:

Can you guess what my favorite color is?

That's right it's RED!!!!

I really love those shoes, the only problem is they are a little higher than what I am used to. Well I can only fall flat on my face once before I will walk in them more carefully. Lets just hope that it don't happen in public......

Post Cards

I just joined a Photography Post Card Swap on swap-bot that can be found here, it is on my watchlist at the moment because being a newbie to the swap-bot site I can only be involved in 5 swaps at a time.

The requirements of the swap were to take a photo of a post box and turn it into a postcard, then send it to 3 different swap partners. I took my photo and decided to make it interesting by altering the photo in Photoshop. Here is the original photo:

Here it is with a grunge like border and a filter added to it (don't remember what filter I used). Looks good but I decided it needed something to make the post box stand out more....

So I took all the color out of it except for the red of the box itself, and here is the final result.

I am getting better at this whole Photoshop thing, so much so that I have decided to enroll in a course that teaches you about Photoshop, the only issue I will have is that the course requirements are that you have Adobe Photoshop CS4, and I only have CS3. I will have to get in contact with the course lecturer to find out if this is OK. I hope it will be otherwise it will cost me a fortune just to upgrade my version to the correct one.

Let me know what you think about how the photo turned out....

Historical Port Adelaide

I had to go to Port Adelaide early this morning, so on my way home I decided to snap a few photos using my new iPhone app. I altered them a little and overall I am quite happy how they turned out. Here they are:

The first one is an old rundown building on the river not sure what it was used for and it is really hard to get to because of the new development that is happening.  The second one is of the old Birkenhead bridge that crosses the Port Adelaide River. The bridge shot looks a little dark because the sun was behind the bridge, but I like the way the bridge looks like a silhouette. I would love to get a shot of this bridge open but because the government built a new bridge a little more up river this one hardy opens anymore.

Going to head down to Semaphore later today to get some historical shots of some of the buildings and monuments there, there is heaps down there as Port Adelaide and Semaphore are both historic suburbs of Adelaide.

Recently I walked into a shop in Port Adelaide that sold antique photos of the area before the 1950's, I would love to buy some of these but as usual they are rather expensive, and my purse won't allow me to buy them. Besides what would I do with them anyway, they would be too good to cut up and use in a collage. the only thing they would be good for would be putting in frames on the wall, I don't get enough visitors to my house to show them off so to me that would be a waste of money that could be spent on art supplies.

Well that's all form me for now, hopefully I will have some more photos to show off later, I am really loving the new photography apps that I downloaded so I will have to try them all out.

Until then, have a great Tuesday.
