HF#52 Giraffes & Photoshop Lessons

Happy 4th of July to everyone in the USA!
Hope your celebrations are safe & sane.

Thanks to Scylla at Law & Motherhood

'Giraffe Favorites'

I discovered the photo of the metal giraffe (on the city street
pictured on the left above) at Ramblings by Reba
back in March of this year, and she
granted permission to share.
Click for Rebecca's Flickr page.

As always with my photos, clicking on the image will 'embiggen' the picture for a better view. I'm still really enjoying my PSE6 classes, and now that I have my new Dell Inspiron 1720 ... practicing at home is much simpler and more pleasant. The brightness of the screen and SPEED are most noticeable, but Vista does things for me often (catching me by surprise) making blog visits & commenting simpler too.

For others participating in Haiku Friday this week go to A Mommy Story or Playgroups are no Place for Children. (To see my previous Haikus, click on the Haiku Friday label below this post or in the sidebar under About Me).

You have some great giraffe shots! I love them too but rarely see them. I love the kissing giraffes. Happy 4th!

Karen (of Sillymonkeez) – Thanks … and I think so too ;--)

Maggie – I’m often surprised when I meet folks who feel as I do about giraffes … and learning how to do these kinds of things with PSE6 has been so much fun. It’s great to have this venue to share.

Rebecca –I’m glad you approve. I do love the metal giraffe you allowed me to share.

Mike – You’re such a good blogging buddy! Thanks for your on-going support and hope you’re enjoying the holiday.

Lisa – I wish I had more in a digital format. I need to transfer my slides from yesteryear and get my prints scanned one of these days. I’ve only had a digital camera since Christmas of 2004. Of course, I’ve taken lots of photos since then ;--)

To all – I’m always delighted to discover comments when I check in here, so thanks for dropping by and spending a bit of your holiday with me. Hope you’re having a wonderful 4th of July!
Hugs and blessings,

These are very beautiful. Thank you, friend.

I love giraffes. The new baby is such a cutie.

Wish I could figure out how you get the tiny font for the footnotes. Hmmmm.

storyteller said...

Sandy Carlson – You’re quite welcome. It’s always my pleasure to share … and it’s great practice too ;--)

Mary Ann – It always surprises me to learn I’m not the only one fascinated with these tall, graceful creatures. I sent email with some tips about changing the font. Let me know if you still have questions.

Thanks to both of you for visiting and sharing your thoughts. Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and blessings,

Very well done! I must say that I love giraffes as well :) I love that one of his/her tongue sticking out!

storyteller said...

Sandy – Thanks. It’s fun to finally use our own photos in our PSE6 projects and to share the results here. I had no idea so many folks enjoyed giraffes as much as I do. How kewl is that?
Hugs and blessings,
