On the rare fifth Monday of the month, our challenge is to play with editing with various apps, then share our creations (masterpieces?) with the blogging world.  I don’t know if the blogging world is ready, but here goes.  The most difficult part of setting up this post was trying to find my first photo.  As I have a PC and the app is for Apple products, I edited the original photo on my phone, then emailed it to myself.  Once I was able to find it on my laptop, I had a terrible time figuring out how to get it into Picasa so I could add my name and the date.  It took a ridiculous amount of time.  Hopefully, next time I’ll remember how I did it!

The first photo is a Distressed FX edit of a leaf covered with raindrops.  To me, it has the feel of a Klimt painting and I love the rich colors.

The second photo is a Matter edit of the bottom of a glass with bubbles, sitting on a coaster from Cafe Milagro in Costa Rica.  Of course, the pyramid was added.  Thanks to Allan of Ohm Sweet Ohm, master of apps, for turning me on to Matter.

“A still life (plural still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on).”  (Wikipedia)

For this fifth Monday, when we use themes from Week 4 to show various editing a/o processing techniques, I’ve chosen a still life.  However, I’m fudging a bit, as my still life is still alive.  My objects are natural (flowers and plants), but I didn’t pick them, only photographed them.  Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy them.  If it makes you feel better, imagine a dead rooster next to it, something that comes to my mind when I think of a still  life.  🙂

I apologize a tiny, tiny bit for all the photos, but I was having way too much fun with this and then I bought 10GB more space (as I was down to less the 1.5% left), so I went just a little crazy. Thanks for bearing with me.  Sally, if you would link me when you see this, I’d appreciate it.  I won’t be around much on Monday or Tuesday.  Thanks in advance.
