Beach HeArt

Beach HeArt 2
While walking along the rocks at the beach last weekend I found this sweet thing and wanted to share with you! Pretty. I wonder who made it. I thought it looked pretty special and deserved a couple of photographs. <3

Beach Box

While I was playing around editing these beach and surfing shots, I letterboxed some and really loved the effect. I just used a little digital camera for these photos and the zoom’s not the biggest so zooming in on the photos and letterboxing them turned out really well.
The 3 surfing pics are definitely my favourites!

Beach Brights

I did up some of the photos I took on the beach and edited a few using a couple of techniques I don’t usually use. I do love the way they have come out though. They’re really bright and sparkly and I love how soft the waves and clouds look.
This one is the view from the sand of a house that caught my eye just off the beach. What a perfect spot to live! The view from that top window would be just amazing!

Andi went surfing the other day and I was lucky enough to tag along and have a beautiful day at the beach. I snapped a LOT of photos! Here are just some of them.

Meet Penny

This is my flashy new banana board! Isn’t she a sweetheart?
I just had a lot of fun playing around with these photos! I love the top one and I figured I’d better include a photo of the whole board too.
Hope you had as much fun as I did on the weekend!  Winking smile

A Photo of a Drawing of a Cat

I took this the other night after doodling this catty picture. I have no patience when it comes to my oil painting so I’ve decided I need to draw more and create more pictures in general, and hopefully some kind of patience and skill will reveal itself to me.
As you may have noticed there was no linky party yesterday. I have decided to stop hosting the parties. I don’t know whether this will be forever but there are certain aspects to the blogging world that are too easy to get caught up in.. and as a result you forget the purpose of the blog in the first place. I know many bloggers write about this but it’s true. I do not blog to blog. I blog to put down my photos and paintings. More content and less Alexa Rankings for me.
If you’re a blogger too, I hope you’re still enjoying yours! I am.

Oops I’m a day late to host my party! Sorry guys! Hope you’ll still drop by and link up your best post of the week!

My other kitty, Indiana was looking on in awe when I took this photo… apparently he had no idea that cats could climb trees! Duke teaches him naughty things.. luckily Indie isn’t quite athletic enough to do most of them though.. so he just looks on in wonder!

I love this shot, the windswept hair, the big blue doe-like eyes… what a super model.
I love this next shot too… mainly for the tongue…

Hide & Seek

hide and seek #1
I had a lot of fun taking some shots of my kittens in the garden the other day. I also had a lot of fun doing them up and fiddling around with them on Picnik. I do love that site. Do you use it?
hide and seek #3
These are just a few of the shots I got while Indiana and Duke were playing. Indie was very interested in following Duke around and watching him. Very cute.

I love the colouring in these shots. The pots look especially pretty!
