I was experimenting with special effects in my iPhoto application tonight and thought I'd share the results. The original photos were shot with the flash on, in low indoor light. Our green colored room paint, rug and curtain reflected too much green on the subjects so I chose a black and white print to eliminate that influence. A tight crop in photo editing plus selecting a diffused corner edge matte in Effects helped diminish the busy nonessential room clutter. Less than successful photographs were saved with a click here and there through software editing. I'm glad I didn't erase these images after all!
Maggie Mae is the 12 year old bossy lady of the house. She's spunky, playful, intelligent and Mom's little shadow. Wherever I am, Maggie thinks she should be also. Being held is tolerated in measurable seconds not minutes, but she insists on laying on or next to me whenever I plant myself long enough for her to do so. Although my little girl has packed on extra weight this winter, come summertime when yard play is doable, she is the fastest thing on four short legs and will burn off the excess practically overnight. She doesn't miss a thing and loves hunting mice and chasing obnoxious Jays.
