I've been enjoying snapseed on my iphone for some time now. 
They have a desktop version for macs - being a sucker for photo apps, I tried it out. 
It does everything you can do on your phone. I haven't messed around much with the editing features, but tried out some of the other edits. I like the ease of center focus in snapseed, as well as the easily applied vintage effects. It's super easy to use, and will 
be handy when processing lots of photos. I'm looking forward to trying it combined with textures in photoshop.

I just signed up for Susan Tuttle's  toy camera with photoshop class. I'm looking forward to learning more photoshop techniques. I've been a fan of Susan's photography for some time, and am excited to have the opportunity to learn from her.

Summer !!!!!

School is officially out, and while teachers everywhere are celebrating, parents probably are not.
I wonder how many kids are bored already?
My niece is not bored - or boring for that matter.
Wearing pink, glittery Chuck Taylors are sure to brighten up any rainy day.

Gloomy and Dreary?

(If I could, I'd invent a sniff button so you could smell these lilacs...)

The weather around here has been just plain dreadful.
Raw, rainy, foggy and plain old depressing.
My lilacs are in full bloom under my living room window, and it's too cold to
open the window and enjoy the smell wafting in on a warm breeze.
Of course, the dogs don't seem to care if it is raining or not, and need to be walked.
As I meandered through my misty neighborhood with the greyhound and his puggle, I could hear all birds calling and singing, going about their business. The trees, bursting with green, drip-drip-drips of rain landing on new leaves
seem to be relaxing
after the business of coming alive again.
It made me realize that this weather isn't so bad after all.

Keeping Up

silent night and history textures by Kim Klassen

I've been busy trying to teach myself photoshop... I am no good in classes that all seem to be taught by men who are scientists. I always feel like I need a translator.
Thankfully there many amazing blogs and tutorials out there, with people more than happy to share their expertise.
(And I wonder why I am still in my pj's in the afternoon, with housework and laundry piled all around me...)
