One More from the Big E

A parting shot from the Big E: my two daughters, plus older daughter’s boyfriend, riding the big yellow slide – a perennial favorite at the fair.  I thought my pictures would make a cute slideshow.  In addition to the kids, the faces of the spectators along the stairs are fun too.

Stripping Down – Picture Fall, day 11

No, not that kind of stripping! 😉

I’ll admit to being a little disappointed at first with today’s photo prompt.  We were supposed to look for light showing off the texture of the photo subject, then strip away the color in photo editing software.  I’ve never been a big fan of black and white photography, but I can appreciate it when it is done well.  Because I love vibrant color so much, finding subjects that do well in black and white is a weakness for me.  As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I took many pretty, colorful, fall pictures on my visit to Pickity Place, and was disappointed I couldn’t use one for yesterday’s prompt.  Then I remembered a shot I took yesterday that pretty much screamed texture:

Picture Fall, day 11

Bonus for me, since they are sheep, I didn’t lose much by removing the color.  And I can admit, I think the texture of the wool is slightly enhanced with the lack of color.

Now, how about that Pickity slideshow I mentioned yesterday?  Here it is, bursting with color!

What’s Blooming – June Edition

I decided to try something different for this month’s edition of “What’s Blooming.”  I’d seen several people using WordPress’s new slideshow feature, so I thought I’d give it a try.  It turned out to be fairly easy, although I don’t know if I’d use it all the time.  It seemed I had to upload these images directly from my computer’s hard drive; there may be a way to do it using Flickr, but if so, I haven’t quite figured that out.  If you have figured this out, could you kindly let me know how to do it too? Isn’t there some sort of space limitations here on WordPress if you upload media directly to your blog rather than using a hosting site like Flickr?  This newbie blogger welcomes any WordPress tips you’d like to pass along.

I hope you will let me know what you think of seeing this edition of What’s Blooming, slideshow style.  I have captions written on each of the shots, and I believe you can use pause, play, forward and back controls on the slideshow by hovering your mouse over it.
