Just for Fun --

 [Thanks to Flypaper Textures]

There are many sites/blogs on the web where you can have fun with photography, and I will feature them from time to time so that you can join in the fun, too (you all do photography these days, don't you? :)  Today I introduce you to Kristy's Life-n-Reflection, a rich site where you can do all kinds of things -- enter photography challenges, learn about different kinds of processing, and get lots of tips on how to make your photographs great.  Today, among other things, you can enter the "Texture Twist."  If you like to use textures, as I do, you can enter the challenge by posting a picture on your blog and leaving a link to it on Kristy's Texture Twist page.  Whether you win or not, challenges are always fun, and they really help you grow as a photographer -- I owe much of my initial development to a couple of great challenge groups on flickr (more about those another day).  So pick up your camera, fire up PS or PSE or GIMP or whatever you use, and have fun.  That's what it's about.


Here's my entry, from a recent trip to Cabo San Lucas -- this beautiful Madonna and angels are in the church in El Triunfo, an old silver mining town between Cabo and La Paz.


And here's a link to Kristy's page:

That is beautiful Madonna. I love challenges, they give me opportunity to show my photos, I have shooting years just for me and what is point of that!? I'm so grateful for starting blogging and found the whole new world:)

Henrietta, thanks for stopping by -- isn't it funny how the whole world opens up when you head down the internet highway? Glad to meet you.

I like the fact that it's slightly off-center, but not. It's so balanced and light. Lovely.
