My goodness, it feels like forever since I’ve participated in one of Desley’s and Lucille’s fabulous Cover Makeover Challenges so it feels good to be dipping my toes back in their creative challenge.
As it was, I was began editing this photo of a NYC Christmas window from last year for another challenge not long after I read Desley’s post about this week’s cover makeover. One thing lead to another and consequently, here is my book jacket.
It’s so NOT the simplistic stylings associated with the jacket of an Ayn Rand, lol. Talk about going from one extreme to the next huh?
Due to the reflections in the window, I had to really beef up the contrast to remove them. However this worked to my benefit by adding a little hint of mystery to this capture.
Oh how time flies when you’re either having fun or have children who have been home for the last two month’s on summer vacation finally returning to school today albeit for only two hours.
Consequently here it is, almost ten hours later than intended, but here is my version of this week’s book jacket makeover from Desley over at Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist.
This is absolutely NOTHING like envisioned as the photo I had in mind I simply couldn’t find in my archives. Then when I went to insert this into my post, there was my photo. Turns out I’d only taken it last week. Shows you how much I can pack into a week without even trying, lol.
And now that’s done, it’s on to make dinner which sadly, is not nearly as much fun as Desley’s makeovers. 😦
This week’s challenge from the Photo Rehab Cover Makeover divas is Stephen Kings’ book The Green Mile, with the option to do either a book jacket or movie poster. As you see, I’ve stuck with the book jacket as they are my personal favs!
This photo I took a week ago when taking Master Fourteen and some mates out fishing early one morning to a new location.
We didn’t quite make it to this new part of the river sadly as there were numerous water obstacles. And although the fishing truck is 4WD, it’s a bit girlie in comparison to many others out there hence wasn’t feeling that brave!
That’s why as the road became narrower and the water across the road invariably became deeper, I apologized profusely to the boys then turned around the first opportunity I had. There was NO way I was getting stuck in the middle of nowhere.
However on the way back to the highway I just had to stop to take this photo as proof we’d at least attempted to fish the infamous Power Lines!
Once again the clock is ticking and I’ve more than likely missed the deadline for this week’s PhotoRehab Cover Makeover but it was one of those things I just had to do regardless. A book jacket “do-over“… LOVE THEM!!!
When I first read this week’s challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do; it was just a case of trawling through my archive to find exactly what I needed.
Always SO much easier said then done as I become so easily side-tracked when going through memory lane!
There’s a new challenge going around and I just COULDN’T resist!
Every Thursday The Drama Queens are going to nominate the name of a book, movie, or something then share their take on a new cover before handing it over to anyone who would like to participate.
This week’s theme is… “THE LONG WAY HOME“, a book from Louise Penny. Here’s my take on a book jacket.
I took this photo as Hubby and I were transferring flights in Hamburg last year from Tallinn to London. There seemed NO end to this translator which seemed SO fitting for this title, lol!
