Hello Kitty - 92/365 Photo

I'm totally not sure if one of these exists for real but what a fantastic idea, don't you think???! I wonder if I can license a patent and make millions? ;) It sure would be pretty darn cool!

I ♥ Faces - Fix it Friday!

I'm a bit late because we spent the day having fun and riding horsies! Was a pretty good day but I just could not resist adding some edits to the Fix It Friday mix.

Here is the 'Before'. This photo really did not need much touching up. It's a great shot from the getgo - good exposure, good composition, great expression. Here are a couple of my edits.


After - my 'straight' edit.
I adjusted white balance just a bit.   I then used a few of my MCP Actions.  I used the 'Extreme Fill Flash' action to take out some of the shadow from the left side of her face (her right).  I then used the 'Pop' action to bump up the contrast.  I then played around with MCP Dreamy Color action.   I also used the 'Eye Doctor' actions to bring out the eyes a bit. 
Straight edit with a bit of a crop.  As much as I love the original, I think I like the crop version just a bit better.
One of my favorites - Chocolate Covered Strawberries (from MCP Actions)
 MCP Actions - Throwback Vintage

Hello Kitty - 90/365 Photo

Some where along the line I got my numbers mixed up, but I should be back on track now. We're working on 'contrasts' in my visualization class and so all I can think about is contrasts. What could be more of a contrast than cute, adorable little HK and hard, not cute rocks and cement?

Hello Kitty - 89/365 Photo

We live in Hawaii but just got news that we're shipping out at the end of the year. Boo! Hiss! We might be playing 'Where in the world is Hello Kitty in a few months'

Ok, there is seriously TOO much cute Easter Hello Kitty stuff. I ordered an Easter basket off of eBay because I got nervous when our local Target sold out of the HK baskets early. They don't usually get more than 1 holiday shipment. Anyway, they did end up getting more baskets but I already ordered mine off of ebay. The basket I ordered was SUPER though because it came with these adorable Hello Kitty plastic refillable/reusable eggs. I know Hope is going to LOVE them!

Hello Kitty - 87/365 Photo

We had such a fun weekend that all we really want to do is cuddle in bed, so that's what we're going to do. Happy Sunday all - see you Monday!

I ♥ Faces - Dramatic B&W

This is a photo I took of my good friend Rachel for one of my classes this semester and I think it really fits into this weeks theme. I've titled it 'Isolation'.  I must admit that I've never really been a fan of B&W but I'm definitely getting when it fits a photo better than color and I think this is definitely one of them.  I'm learning to like it, a lot.

Please make sure you stop by to check out all of the other fabulous entries.  I'm sure this week is going to be a big one.
