Safety in numbers… (Wordless Wednesday)

Here one week, gone the next! (WPC: Temporary)

My favorite part of autumn is watching the many different mushrooms that pop-up in the undergrowth. One has to be quick however as they are only a temporary fixture, disappearing as quickly as they appear.

Temporary is The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.

 

 

 

 

 

The Under Belly (One Four Challenge – Week 4)

Oh how time flies when you are having fun! Here we are at the fourth and final week of the One Four Challenge, hosted by Robyn Gosby from Captivate Me. For this final week I had fun… and lots of it!

For this week I transferred the image to my phone to edit it in Snapseed. For some reason known only to my inner being, I feel completely uninhibited when editing on my phone. One thing, leads to another, which leads to another, and voila!

Obviously I added the grunge filter, and I dare say I’ve done a little of everything else when it comes to brightness, contrast, saturation, ambience, highlights, shadows and warmth. Most likely there a vintage filter has also been used.

Below is a slide-show of all my submissions for November’s One Four Challenge. Hope you’ve had an opportunity to check out everyone’s awesome submissions for this challenge.

Many thanks to Robyn for hosting this fabulous challenge – fingers-crossed it makes a return in 2017!

Magic Mushroom (WPC: Magic)

Miss P from Life is Like That suggested this week’s prompt of MAGIC for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge, was a perfect opportunity to share the results of our combined efforts from a few weeks back. And I have to say, I agree!

Knowing my love for mushrooms, whilst on a visit to Vancouver Island, Miss P shared with me this photo of a mushroom she’d recently seen. It was glorious. However as you can see, I couldn’t help but have some fun, adding to it just a tad, lol!😂

Thank you again for thinking of me Miss P – and as you say… Life is Like That!

The Under Belly (One Four Challenge – Week 3)

‘Tis Week 3 of the fabulous One Four Challenge hosted by the lovely Robyn Gosby of Captivate Me.

This week curiosity had me editing to see what my ‘schroom would look like in the ageless sepia tones. Needless to say, it didn’t disappoint.

What was interesting after this edit of converting from colour to sepia was, for me at least, it felt as if I cropped the image which I hadn’t. The only other edits after changing the photograph to sepia, was to bump up the contrast and to straighten the image ever so slightly. Below are my previous week’s submissions for comparison.

Oh, and if you aren’t familiar with the One-Four-Challenge, it’s where you choose one of your own photographs and for four weeks you edit this photo differently each week. It really does makes you think!

The Tiny World Below (WPC: Tiny)

Time seems to be flying by. Without any security or passport control to slow things down, its disappearing at the most alarming rate in this countdown to Christmas (and Hubby’s return… 36 days and counting!).

The Daily Post for their Weekly Photo Challenge has offered… Tiny. This tiny mushroom proving very apt for this challenge!

WPC - Tiny

This tiny mushroom comes complete with an assortment of our local mosses surrounding it, highlighting just how tiny it truly is. Clearly mushrooms has become my unofficial theme for this week, lol!
