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.

Sunday afternoon, we drove to Whalen Lake, part of an extensive park system in the Chicago metropolitan area.  The heat and humidity were beating down, but my husband had mentioned that there were lots of egrets the last time he rode his bike there.  Although we did spot some, most were too far away, probably due to the noise of a large group of picnickers under the shelter.  However, we did spot a number of birds and butterflies in the area, including a rare miniature dragon sighting.

I do not care what comes after; I have seen the dragons on the wind of morning.

I desired dragons with a profound desire. Of course, I in my timid body did not wish to have them in the neighborhood. But the world that contained even the imagination of Fáfnir was richer and more beautiful, at whatever the cost of peril.
~J.R.R. Tolkien

If the sky could dream, it would dream of dragons.

Dragons and legends…It would have been difficult for any man not to want to fight beside a dragon.
