San Antonio, Texas – Throw Back Thursday Photo Collage

My cousin Sharon and I arranged my first visit to Texas right after my surgeon and I scheduled my operation for September 9, 2016. We decided on early April as we felt the weather would cooperate and not be blazing hot. Thankfully, it was fabulous, especially as I was able to fly out of Boston during an April snowstorm.

My entire family knows I am a camera head so she asked me to send her a list of must do’s and she’d come up with some activities. She did not disappoint! We had a great time finding Texas state symbols, eating delicious food, driving up and down the highway and simply acting like tourists. My joy joy included finding a store that sold a gold Texas bracelet charm for my bracelet, clapping!

This month features a few of my favorite  #tbt  San Antonio, Texas travel images.

Travel Tuesday – Walking through Jardines del Buen Retiro in Madrid, Spain

Jardins del Buen Retiro

Planning and traveling with painful surgical after effects hasn’t totally discouraged me but has made me even more appreciative of my experiences which are now only once a year versus several times a year.  My favorite travel company posted a fabulously priced vacation package last November to Madrid, Spain. I booked it for  August so that my son could celebrate his 22nd birthday on August 22nd in Spain.

Due to a medical issue, on day three, I was stuck in my hotel room until 3pm which was fine for my son who was a bit jet lagged and napped until I could manage to leave.

We chose to visit the enormous public park located in Madrid. It was well worth the visit and was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel on Calle de Atocha. Thankfully, there are plenty of benches throughout the park, most of them under tall, shady trees for those folks  like me who have to take period rest breaks.

Tip:  The photo collage was designed to show the paths are mainly made of powdery white sand.  Please be sure to wear comfortable, easy to clean, sand friendly shoes.             You can thank me later. 🙂

 

Iceland – Throw Back Thursday Photo Collage

I loved both my winter and summer trips to Iceland. I can picture myself living there for a month or so just traveling and taking photos. My goal is to finally capture a stunning photo of the Northern Lights 🙂

In the meantime, my son and I had a super great 6 day escorted vacation, last August for his 21st birthday trip. The weather was absolutely perfect. Our tour guide said our group had the best weather he’d seen in a while. Yes!

This month features #tbt gift products of summer landscape photos taken in Iceland in August. I couldn’t pick just one favorite and that’s why I get excited about photo collages.

Reynisfjara, Iceland Black Sand Beach Triptych

Last year’s six night, August escorted tour of Iceland was just what the doctor ordered. All the work was done for us, yes!  All we had to do was show up on time to board the tour bus. One of our fabulous stops was in South Iceland to Reynisfjara. My 21 year old son and I stood in awe at the magnificent basalt rock columns on our far left which he had to climb and our first black sand beach on the left  that is featured in the 3 panel acrylic print above, my first.
The original image was artistically tweaked into this dramatic wall art suitable for home, office or hotel room! Contact me below if you’d like me to modify the Iceland font and or to the text.

Tasty looking beef quesadilla photograph accepted on Alamy.com!

For years, my family has endured my fondness of taking foodie photos before anyone can eat their meal. I was a foodie photographer before it even became a thing lol.

Recently, one of my brothers and I had to travel to Maryland to relocate our Dad from an assisted living facility to the DC/VA Hospital Community Living Center. We rewarded ourselves with a quick bite to eat at Johnny Pistolas in Adams Morgan, DC. We were fortunate to arrive before the dinner rush hour and were seated at a table right by the window that had the perfect lighting for a food photo.

As an added bonus, not only did the quesadilla photograph nicely, it was quite delicious!

Gold and Gray Confetti 4302 Fashionwear

I was never much of a clothes shopper before my cancer surgery, I know, :-), Really, it’s true. And now due to painful, internal surgical adhesion scarring, I rarely leave the house. However, when I do venture out, I still like to look nice so designing fashion outfits has become a favorite activity.

I admit it brings a special joy to my soul to be complimented while wearing my creations. This print was done to match my favorite gold head wrap.

I took a photo of my gold head wrap on my iPad, added the image to one of my graphic art apps, included the colors of black and white and managed to come up with several magical selections. Happy day! Can’t wait to order these for my trip to Sweden.

 

2018 Wall Calendar Art Khoncepts

Hanging a beautiful wall calendar may seem a bit old fashion, however for quite a few of my clients and family members like being able to have a cheerfully visual back-up to  electronic reminders.

My 80+ year old Aunt especially loves wall calendars as she is not on the computer nor uses her phone in that manner. The pretty photo designs were an added bonus for her. Thanks Auntie!

A calendar theme must first be chosen; nature, color combinations or landscapes. Prior to surgery it would’ve generally take one day to chose the images, re-size the images to the correct format, write a brief description for the calendar and then publishing the finish product to the shop.  Currently, even though now it takes a few days, the process still brings loads of enjoyment, especially when viewing the end results.
