Before/After...

It's my favorite time of week once more! I'm sitting here, watching the calander, checking UPS Tracking progress, and watching my camera creep it's way from California......... it looks like it's gonna be Monday!

So, until then, I must keep busy with some bloggy fun!
Here's a shot I took at the Memorial Day Parade earlier this year. It was Noon, and crazy hot out.......... I felt so bad for them in full uniform!


So, I am a newbie to texture.....still learning what I'm doing! I loved Monica's Before/After shot of a old-fashioned camera last week though, so I thought I'd play around. (It was fun!)
So, here's what I wound up with:


So, hop on over to Pixel Perfect, and go see everyone else's amazing edits! I learn so much from this blog hop every week!
