Oh Jonesie… You slay me with those eyes and your jowls hanging out on the floor! Mr. Mr. is two now, pretty sure. Being a rescue, it’s hard to tell. We celebrate his adoption/homecoming date instead, which is in July. But he’s essentially a teenager in dog years, so there’s that. He learned he can […]

Aaaaand another one from our recent camping trip! This one taken with the Canon and edited for exposure in PSE. I was taking some close-ups on the forest floor, and then turned to the sky without thinking about adjusting my settings. Smart, huh? A quick select in PSE to capture the trees, then a brightening, […]

   So I’m posting from my phone this week, hope it works out! If you follow my Instagram, you know we went camping over the weekend. It had a very soothing effect – aside from the freezing cold! I snapped a few pictures with my camera, but due to the extreme temps, I used my […]

Oh, man.  Seriously, you guys.  Where has my motivation gone?? I’m starting to get it together, so thanks for bearing with me! This is an oldie taken at Tempe Town Lake at Oktoberfest 2014.  I didn’t do much to it, aside from leveling it out and cropping it eversoslightly. I played around with brightening it up, but […]

I took so many pictures on our trip to Europe, I thought I’d share a random street shot taken in Bath, England.  Bath was so picturesque, with all the flowers and cobblestone, the limestone, courtyards and beautiful shops.  It was SO hard to leave! I cropped this picture, lightened it a bit and straightened it […]

It’s kind of surreal that I’m in the third year of wandering eye wednesday.  I hope you are still enjoying it – I know this weekly post definitely kept me committed to the blog last year when I wasn’t feeling very creative or social. I have a post coming up with the last photos of San […]

So I think I’ve talked about Snapseed, right? It’s a photo editing app for your mobile device, and I FREAKING LOVE IT.  I don’t remember what all I did for editing on this picture, because you just choose the “Tune Image” icon, and then swipe your finger up and down and select what you want […]
