Morning Walk Photo Dreams

I am a pretty good photographer.


In fact, I have taken some photos that blow me away,


and that I am really proud of.

I think it comes from walking through life with that artist's eye.


That is something I am grateful for every single day.

Sometimes I see things and immediately think what I could do with them in a collage or painting.





Or if I knew more about Photoshop and Digital Photo Manipulation.


Maybe with some good lessons from a pro like Susan Tuttle

I could consistently create the dreamy, moody, soft, prvocative, eye-catching kind of photos

that I see in my artist's mind...

Honestly ?
I need a lot of help.
And it just so happens that Susan's brand new book, Digital Expressions, is available on Amazon
and looks like just the thing I need to get me creating art in a whole new way.

Plus the Computer Geek Hubby, who took Susan's Digital Manipulation On-line Class and raved

about it, would love to have the book as well.

And guess what ?

Susan is offering a giveaway of the new book on her blog right now!

Maybe I will be lucky enough to win the book,

and if not, David is a Daddy to some furry kids and he should get a Father's Day giftie too, don't you think ?

Here's to always looking at the world with fresh eyes.

Happy Friday, Beautiful Ones !

Always love your pics here Kim and these one's are beautiful. Your Artist's eye is a powerful one!

The book looks very illuminating - maybe you could buy two so you won't have a tug-o-war with it with your hub :)

Hmm, well, I don't know if I should bother entering that contest since you are on such a winning streak! Oh what the heck - you can't get hit by lightening if you're not standing outside in the storm, right?

You do take wonderful photographs and there were plenty of photos in this post to prove that. I hope you win the book, or at least it comes to live at your house so you can borrow it.

I still can't believe I got all those Golden products for almost nothing. I am used to buying them one at a time with a coupon.
