Images and Words~~~ New

 
"

Seneca quotes

(Roman philosopher, mid-1st century AD)

 

While searching for a quote with the word "new", I found this.  It rang very true for me.  I have come to the end of a beginning, and a new beginning awaits.  Then I searched my photos, and found this.

Childhood is a beginning.  Childhood ended on this day, and a new beginning was made with two people that are now one.  One day, another new beginnng will come...children, grandchildren. 

Endings can be a very good thing.

Picture Perfect Competition Time #1 ~ Ethnic

 
The theme this week is "Ethnic".  It is defined by PP as follows:
 

ETHNIC

(ethnic: pertaining to or characteristic of a people, group, religion or culture)

 

In our little area of the world, farm land is a large part of our culture.  Sadly, a lot of it lays dormant these days.  Many of the farmers have had to take on jobs to make ends meet.  On my cousins farm, there are no fields, only a garden with enough vegetables to carry the family over.  There are, however, animals that must be tended each day.  Above is a photo of my cousin doing just that.

Mono Monday Plus....The Gathering.

HI all, I'm a day late, but I'm here this week.  I've been playing with a picture of my sister.This is what I came out with.

This is the original picture:

 
 
 
Using a quick mask, I cut my sister out of this picture and pasted her onto another background.
 
 
 
 
 
All of the above was done in CS4.  Then I went to picnik.com.  These are my final pictures.
 
 
 
 
 
And that's my entry for this week.  For more MM click here.
