Finally started working in the studio again.  I made a few changes to some of my small unframed pieces.  I lightened the impact of the text.  The top row is before and the bottom row is after.  Hopefully, I will have my blog more active again in the coming weeks.

There has been heavy for all day (Oct. 18, 2012), I took advantage of this and photographed a cemetery near my house in GA.  It is a cemetery for Mt. Zion Baptist Church, though, it is not next to the church.  I turned my Digital Camera (Cannon Rebel XTI - 2005) to Black and White in order to take advantage of the fog.

I photographed my husbands matchbox cars.  I am not sure if this is working yet and I might re-photgraph them on a different surface with more cars.
