Double Vision

what is a friend

Today's Texture Tuesday theme is "Two." I went back to my archives for this image, taken at St. Mary's Sewanee last summer. Many butterfly images came out of that visit.

The texture used here is Kim's latest, "Phoebe." I love, love, love, this one and I'm sure I'll use over and over. In fact, I used it on a different piece that will make an appearance later. On this one, I pulled out the edges of the texture to remove the framing as it didn't work with the image so well, and added a layer of Shadowhouse Creations' "Black Box Mask-5."

While we are on the subject of friends, I want to share with you a shot of my son and his buddy Nick taken on the day they deployed. On the last deployment, they were almost literally joined at the hip and are serving together again this time as squad leader and team leader. They were both promoted to Corporal in August. If you've noticed that I've been sneaking in images of men (mostly mine) in uniform this week, it is because I'm honoring my favorite veterans all week leading up to Veteran's Day on Friday.


I stayed up way too late last night working on photos and I slept in a little later this morning. So, I can only make it to one of my favorite Tuesday linky parties. How much more productive I would be if I didn't need to sleep or go to the bathroom.

Thiry Days Of ThanksToday I am thankful for....

Friends - new and old, far and near, online and offline. And, coffee!
