A New Paint Job
Well, I finally got it right...I wanted to paint and did but,it was way to dark I loved the color but it just wasn't right for a bedroom...I went back to, picked the same paint but just ask that they lighten it a bit....I think, it turned out just right! Now, I may never be able to match it again.... I moved things around as we were painting.... everything old is new again, even Miss French got something new to wear..... Enjoy the Day!
More Photos and a Thank You
First, I want to thank each of you for your kind and thoughtful words concerning my health. You don't know how they all made me feel when I read them. I even cried...thank you so much! I am a "hugger" so I wish I could give each of you a (((BIG HUG))) in person. But the cyber hugs will have to do. I do know one thing though, God has definitely blessed me with all of you! Now on to more photos that I've taken with the new camera. I still haven't fooled with the other lenses, just still shooting with the one. I didn't feel too hot today, so I kept them all inside. I took them all in natural lighting (no lights) and I am quite pleased with how they turned out. There are settings that allow me to adjust the brightness, but I am still just using the "auto" setting for now. Not bad being in a basement, huh? I did add some softness to this photo...it makes me sleepy looking at it, lol. I'm like that kid who got their first pair of glasses and seeing things in detail for the first time with this camera! It's how the lighting looks, no editing other than lightening the photo up a bit. I mean, the colors are dead on! If anyone who's edited a dark photo, they'll know that the colors get distorted and whacky. Not with this! The green stays green, and the details stay crisp! I am so very pleased and my mind is going 90 miles a minute with all of the possibilities! I have always been fascinated with photography, but have never been able to afford a really good camera. Watch out world, Melanie is on the loose and I am going to capture God's beauty in everything! Can you tell I'm excited? I love how it captures the room like I see it. Now that really makes a statement when taking a photo. You see it with your eyes, but some cameras just don't pick that up and it's disheartening. I moved some chairs around today. I'm liking the layout a bit better. I can't wait until Christmas...to capture the twinkling lights and all! Louis helped me with being my subject...he's so cute! He's spotted a bird, can ya tell? He loves coming to this room and lounging by the window. I've taken him outside, but he's definitely an inside cat, lol. He claws me to death trying to get back in. I think he's quite happy just being a spectator. He didn't have a clue I was behind him...see how his hair is standing up? lol I love this cat, he's my little buddy that follows me everywhere. And last but not least...my sweetheart posing for one last photo for the day. Wonder what he's thinking? Well, that's all for now. Thanks for stopping by. I pray you all have a blessed week full of good health, peace and lot's of love!
