Luna and I have had a rough few weeks. Three weeks ago, the day we returned home from a trip, I realized something was very very wrong with Luna’s leg. As it turned out, Luna had broken her hip. A freak accident, probably from a fall in the house. She needed a terrible surgery. So many friends and family helped with the expense so she could become well. I painted this image as a gift for my vet who did an awesome job on the surgery. Today, after three weeks of healing in our bedroom, she has been given permission to be a free kitty in the house again! Yay :)
The night was so clear last night that hubby suggested we go for a walk to capture some star trails. Little did I know that he brought along a roman candle.
3 1/2 minutes of stars :)
My computer has gone through a few upgrades and I lost all of my actions in PS…the ones I used to resize and watermark my images. I haven’t been an active blogger as of late but I intend to come up with a new watermark and action that I can use here and on facebook to keep things simple, streamlined, and make posting easier. :) Any suggestions on the best size? I’m a bit uncomfortable posting large photos on social media. I used to post 2 versions of my images here, one on the blog and a larger version when clicked on. I’m done with that. It’s too much work. And Facebook… well… I’ve been posting really small there. I just need one size I can relatively safely use everywhere.
2014 saw so many changes. At one point I thought I wouldn’t survive them. Now we are settled in a new home, and coincidentally in a spot I have always wanted to live in. With life always changing and throwing us for a loop I consider this new blessing a temporary treat. I never thought I would actually have an ocean view but I am enjoying every day of it. It has awakened me creatively too and I hope I can keep it up although a busy schedule makes that difficult.
The top shot was from a photo shoot I did in September. It’s rarely warm enough in Northern Cali to actually wear a bikini, but it sure is stereotypically Californian. :)
Meet Luna :) Luna is my new baby, a 7-month old Nebelung type kitten. We’ve had her now 2 months and she’s such a sweetie.
Lately I’ve been photographing items for people to sell on Ebay. This week was vintage Star Wars trading cards and I used the tiny white cup to prop the cards up. While working diligently, using my lightbox, there was a knock on the door. Yay, pizza is here!! Woo hoo… When I returned to my task, here is what I found! ;)
Also, check our her new sweet name tag. Found it on etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/FetchAPassionTags
I had a real fun opportunity to photograph a company’s outing on the San Francisco Bay. What a beautiful day it was, and such a treat for me since it has been years since I’ve sailed through the Golden Gate and seen the underbelly of our beautiful bridge. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, and in addition to dolphins (which stunned me and which I got no photographs of), we saw pelicans dancing and diving. Here is a 5-photo montage of one diving :)
