This week's theme for the Photography Challenge at A Step in the Journey was "What Makes You Smile?" I love this theme, because there have been quite a few things this week that have definitely not left me smiling.
|Anyone know a good tile guy?|
But then yesterday morning as I was drinking my coffee, I heard my daughter Bailey playing in her room. When I peeked around the corner, I found her sitting on her pink ladybug beanbag, playing with her dollhouse, singing to her toys...all while wearing fairy wings. This definitely makes me smile!
I snapped this photo early in the morning with my Sony Cybershot point and shoot camera. Using Picnik, I lightened the exposure just a bit and hit it with the Orton-ish effect (one of my favorites) reduced to about 50 percent. I like the glow that this effect gives it. I think it makes her look downright angelic...it's a great optical illusion! haha!
Next week's theme...bold colors. This one's going to be fun!
