IMG_9235Challenge Day 21: Reflection

It took me about an hour of image editing to get this photo to look like this. It may have just been easier to retake the photo.

IMG_9319Challenge Day 22: Your Shoes

My shoes are in pretty bad shape, so instead of trying to come up with an attractive picture, I photographed the inside of the shoe. Then I ran it through Paint and Picmonkey to create an abstract. I actually love the results.

IMG_9327Challenge Day 23: Something Old

I’m not sure of the age of these books, but they must be at least 30-50 years old.

IMG_9368Challenge Day 24: Guilty Pleasure

As I may have mentioned before, I am obsessed with books. This is my reading journal where I list all the books I’ve read within the last year.

IMG_9374Challenge Day 25: Something You Made

This is a page I painted in This Is Not A Book by Kerri Smith. Kerri Smith writes a series of adult activity books.

IMG_9340Challenge Day 26: Color

This photo is from a slice of scrapbooking paper that I photographed and then ran through Photoscape.

IMG_9380Challenge Day 27: Lunch

For a quick meal/snack I sometimes layer corn chips, salsa and cheese on a microwave plate and heat on high for 1-2 minutes.

IMG_9356Challenge Day 28: Light

This is a night photo of the view from my balcony. I decolorized the photo using Photoscape.
