Day 30 - Drink Positive

Day 30
30th January, 2009
Pretty random shot today - pretty desperate. Must admit though that I love the way the camera has caught the condensation and water droplets.
Anyway thought that water was as good as any photo to take cause I figure hey without it we wouldn't be here.

Someone in this house is having a birthday today. Like this photo - deep in concentration. Love that close up rugged look too.
Since we have celebrated Australia Day this week, thought I would capture some of these Aussie Native flowers.Haven't had much of a chance to play with photoshop tonight. Too busy celebrating. Might have a play with some of these photos though over the next couple of days.

Day 26 - Australia Day

Well today being Australia Day, I would share this photo. It was taken later tonight. I did however take some other photos today which I will also share.
We had a pretty uneventful day - Steve worked in the yard and I cleaned up inside and then had a play with Photoshop Actions. I took this photo of Steve mowing and then used a CoffeeShop Honey Retro Action, I like the effect and can see that I am going to have a lot of fun playing with some of these in the future.
The photo above is the original

This one is the result of using the CoffeeShop Honey Retro Action.

If you want to discover some great actions and they are free, check out CoffeeShop Free PS/PSE Tutorias and Actions. These are photos that I have shared before, but ones I played with today using some of the actions I downloaded from CoffeeShop. I love the effects. I have shared the original and then those photos altered by the actions. Original
Grunge Texture Effect.

This was the Original - now check the changes below. These were all different actions applied to the original photo.
This was the blur action

The above photo was using the Honey Retro Action
This was was using the Sharpened ActionThis was using the Vibrance Action

This one was using the Vintage Action
And finally this one is the same photo but was changed by using this tutorial.

Well that is about it for today.

Day 24 - the Wedding

Day 24
24th January 2009
We attended a wedding today so my photos for day 24 are Dave and Katies wedding photos.
Unfortunately we didn't manage to get any outside photos as it started pouring rain, just after they got out of the church. These are only a few of the couple of hundred photos I ended up taking for Katie today.

A bit of Singstar happening at ourplace lately. Caught in the act. (you can see I am getting a little desperate for photos today. )

Day 21
Wednesday 21st January, 2009

This has been much more difficult to do now that I am bacl at work. This is not a brilliant shot, but given the circumstances at the moment, it was about all that I could do. There is a little too much sunlight breaking through the shade cloth.

It;s getting late - gonna call it a night.
We have a wedding to attend. Hoping to have some beaut photos of a wedding o share tomorrow.

Day 20
Tuesday 20th January 2009
A bit harder to get motivated to take photos now that we have arrived home. This photo is of the new additions to our family today - 6 baby chickens, 3 black and 3 white. We lost all our Chooks on Christmas night when some dog ripped open their coup and killed them all. We were pretty upset when we came home and found them all the following morning.

Day 19
Monday 19th January 2009
"SUMMER FRUITS"It is stinking hot here at the moment and this is all we feel like eating - this was dinner tonight.

Day 18
Sunday 18th January 2009
"MY FIRST RINGYou can see I am a little desperate for a photo for today. We spent the day in the car driving home from holidays. This is a photo of the first ring my wonderful DH gave me when I was all of 17 years of age. Now my girls are fighting over who gets to wear it.


Although this photo was not taken today but a couple of days ago, just wanted to share it also -Love this photo of footsteps in the sand.

Now that our broadband and phone lines have been fixed, hope to get back to update daily again.
