One Four Challenge: December Week 4

1 4 Glaze (640x485)

Wow, the time has gone quickly in December.  It won’t be long and it will be 2015.

And this is the final week for this challenge for this year and yes, I will definitely be back next year for this challenge and it is a great one for experimenting and trying out new ideas.

“Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here.”

Neil Gaiman

I love this quote as it really represents my approach to photography.  Most important  of all it is about enjoying what I do.

Anyway the first photo is for the final week.  After the third week I really didn’t want to do any more editing as I loved that image the best of all.  But I went to the Glaze app and turned it into an oil painting but I am not entirely happy with it.

And here is the original.

And a slide show to show how the image has changed over the weeks.

You can find out more about this challenge here at Robyn’s blog.

This challenge has not only helped with learning new apps, but I have learnt how to create a gallery, a slide show and a poll.

Good morning from a cooler sunny Hastings morning.

A Christmas theme for my Oddball challenge from Cee.

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: Week 42

There is a Christmas shop in the CBD that is more like a grotto with Santa Claus sitting in his big chair waiting for the children to come and see him.

I just loved this Teddy sitting outside in the window.  So cute.
