To FRANCINE (Francine in Retirement) and PAMELA (Snapitures), two of the dream bloggy friends one can have. πŸ™‚ Thank you for your kindness and generosity. Francine, for featuring me in her Thursday post, and Pamela for honoring me with a Seed of Light Award. πŸ™‚

Dream/Ivory is the current challenge by Nurture Photography. In response to this challenge, I took photos with the lens covered by a clear plastic wrap. I was hoping to get that softly focused effect on the photos. Afterwards, I played with the colors a bit to get that neither here neither there color that I associate with dreams. The results of my experimentation made me smile. Just to be sire, I asked my 8 year old to make a critique of my work. But I guess, he was biased because he was looking at Mommy’s work and was unsure of the repercussions of a “That’s ugly” comment. πŸ™‚

“I like that picture, Mommy. It has a lot of flowers.”
“I like that picture, Mommy. It is like seeing things right after I opened my eyes.”

“I like that picture, Mommy. That does not look like a tulip but many lips and it looks like it’s going to eat you.”

“I like that picture, Mommy, because it looks like it is going to eat your camera.”
Pink Tulip
“I like that my picture, Mommy. It looks like there is a party being held inside the flower. See the glow?”

“I like that picture, Mommy, because I like pink flowers.”

I hope you enjoyed my little experiment. Β I certainly had fun trying out a new thing. πŸ™‚
