Daily Blessings

04 Apr


While we often spend our days



The past and the future,

We often miss 

The beauty

Each day has to offer

Just outside our tattered windows.

    Fantastic picture–and that’s great advice, too! But how did you take the photo? The weathered window looks like it’s the outside, is the landscape a reflection?

      The picture is two photos put together, something I learned how to do in the Photoshop class I took. I removed the portion of the window glass from the window photo and placed a landscape photo that I took behind it to create the picture in the post.

      When I was all finished I thought as you did, it is looking from the wrong perspective.

      I thought the same thing as Tom…neat effect though…

        It would have been fun to have such a beautiful reflection but the window were mostly dark before I began.

    Incredible! Did you take that shot, Jeanne! I’m so impressed!

      Thanks Maura. The picture is a combination of two photos that I took. One is of a window on an old shed at my husband parent’s farm and the other is a landscape shot I took on my way to work one morning.

      Now that I have the hard work done with the window frame photo I have endless possibilities of other photos I could put for the window glass for different effects.

    Your picture brings back memories of a time long ago.

    There is much truth and wisdom in this poem, Jeanne. I love the photo that goes with it. The contrast of the tattered window against the beauty outside is stunning. Blessings to you…

      Thank you Carol I consider it a great compliment from someone who writes as well as you do on a daily basis.

      Blessings on your day! Jeanne

    Beautiful post, Jeanne.

    You’re obviously learning lots in PhotoShop ~ at first glance, I thought you took the photo standing outside the shed to capture the reflection in the glass.

      Thanks Nancy. One of my favorite things to do is to learn something new. I’m having a great time experimenting.

    Has to be one of the most captivating photos I have ever seen. You should try to interest a jig saw puzzle manufacturer on this one, for sure. Yes I see wrong perspective but that makes it more haunting.

      Thanks Carl! I wonder who I would contact for a puzzle. I love jigsaw puzzles and it would be fun to see it as a puzzle. I really have enjoyed learning to work with Photoshop and my new camera.
