This shot was taken outside my front door. I was actually able to be outside without suffocating. Even the radiant sky was smiling in approval at the break from the oppressive heat.
Processed with a preset in Lightroom called CSI Miami. I've been wanting to use that one for some time but never had the right photo until now.

Used Kim Klassen's Break Free texture and the Sunset Boost part of Coffee Shop's Magic Sunset action.

She's got to have her security blanket and be in a lap. Never mind that her humans are on fire with her AND a blanket smothering our limbs--she wants what she wants and will not be denied. She's a demanding little toot.
Sorry for another Izzy photo, but I was feeling horrible after work today. Shot 20 photos of Izzy and 2 of my bare feet from the sofa. I'm finally starting to come out of it.

Leo made it through the first night and I took him home after that. He was so wobbly he could barely stand up straight to do his business. I thought, "What in the world have I gotten myself into." After about a week or so he became stronger. Before I knew it he was bossing all my other dogs around. And bark! Oh my dog, this boy has a set of lungs!
For the last 5 years he has lived happily with my youngest son. They are inseparable.

When she announced the price hubby said rather loudly, "Did she just say $101.00?" I shook my head yes and gave him a look that told him not to say another word. We were in a ritzy area of town and I didn't want to be embarrassed.
When we got in the car I told him that I would forgo DSW Shoes and Macy's. He said, "Good, let's go get something to eat." I also said I was sorry that all my hobbies seem to be so dang expensive.
I'm still in shock over that price tag!

I seriously need a break from 365. But I'm not giving up yet. Once I start on a project I always see it through to the end, even if it kills me.

Having a difficult time with 365 lately. Maybe it's the stifling heat. Well, I'm tired of stressing out; this is supposed to be fun, after all.
Processed with Paul Grand's "crackled glazed paint on dresser" texture, using the soft light blending mode at 100%. Removed texture on the angel with the Smudge tool.

Processed in Lightroom using Gavin Seims' "Super Hero AUTO" in combination with the general Punch preset.

Processed using Kim Klassen's "Peace" texture and Coffeeshop's Golden Vintage action. I love Kim's textures; they are the best!
Minimal processing in Lightroom. Sunburst is real. :)

Spent most of the day cleaning, then shopping. Didn't really have a chance to do anything for 365, so while we were waiting for dinner last night in Frisco, I snapped some pictures of longhorn statues with my iphone, thinking that would have to do. When we got home it was right around sunset; walked out the front door and shot this. The colors and light were amazing.

I really like the way this shot turned out EXCEPT for the fine hair which has somehow found its way around the flower's stem and leaves. I suspect it's my dog's fur, but I'm not sure. My eyesight must be getting really bad because I didn't see this through the viewfinder, even while zoomed in at 250mm. :/

Sounds like she's singing...
Whoo... whoo... whoo...
Look who joined the party! We actually had several white-winged doves, along with the usual mourning doves and sparrows. The cardinal made a brief cameo this evening, but as soon as I picked up my camera to point it at him he was gone. And he didn't come back—I waited for over an hour. :(
