I have noticed lately that there has been a lot change in my life. Ever since I let go of past ties and made decisions that will move me forward – not to mention the energy I’m putting out into the universe – good things have been happening. People are more drawn to me; for instance, in this past week alone I have gained 4 more followers. That may not mean much to some people, the well known ones – only 4 in a week – but after being stagnant in that regard for so long it means a lot. I even have new Twitter followers. (*waves at said new followers* Hi! How are ya?)
In my personal life, things are getting better. Much better. My writing is starting back up. I like it.
Yet there is still a lot of consistency too – my best friends, my relationship with Peter (which is a consistent ebb and flow of growth and stangnacy, as most relationships are), my kids, the things I see at the beach.
Even the two men who ask me to fuel their fetishes – the guy from yesterday, with that tie, and the one who comes to me to beat his ass and direct his self spankings.
I love the changes that are happening for me. I know that certain challenges are coming but I’m expecting them and am, therefore, armed to deal with them. And the growth that I have been doing will allow me to deal with them with grace.
*coughs*Most of the time *coughs*
And spring, as I’ve shown you recently, brings a lot of growth, a lot of changes in the landscape. That’s what I have for you today. I have a few treatments of the same picture of snowdrops (tiny white flowers) because I love the outcomes. I have some purple for you and a couple different perspectives on the world.
But first, fire in the sky…
Snowdrops first I think.
Snowdrops are tiny spring flowers, among the first to bloom when the season of rebirth begins. I found some I really liked.
Yeah, I turned up the brightness and contrast a bit. 😀 I like it. But then, me being me, I opened the Hue/Saturation thingy (the word escapes me) and turned the saturation all the way down to get this:
Then! I was scrolling the filters and I found the lighting effects! Of course I had to play with it! Look what happened…
I have a picture up next that my friend kitty (not her real name) says is hard to look at because it screws with her eyes. It’s an upside down picture of a tiny flower called (I think) a squill. It’s a six-petal, early blooming flower that likes to peek its head out of the snow. Once again, it’s one that I took without seeing the viewfinder. I pretty much laid the camera lens up on the ground for this. The flower is out of focus, even with the sharpening filter, but I still think the photo is pretty.
Next is the peridot. It’s a tiny, iris-like flower that is growing like …well, a weed… throughout the lawn. They’re maybe the size of a half dollar coin (US) and to take the picture I had to get down on my knees, stick my ass in the air and try, try, try to see what the heck my view finder was seeing.
I ended up with this.
Peter pointed out that there is one peridot in focus. So I isolated it and ended up with a pretty picture, IMO.
Oh wow! That’s all of them folks.
I am going to get some writing done and make some bacon and eggs. Probably in that order since Peter still has to do the dishes. *chuckles*
Have a fantastic Sunday, folks!
