On the living room floor


I was experimenting with various textures today and created these two images, one using an algebra book as a background and the other using a dryer sheet that I'd soaked in coffee. Abby's eyes grew wide when she saw the feather, but stayed back when I asked her to. For a change. P.S. The Sacramento Bee interviewed me this afternoon regarding California's wildflower season and asked about where their readers should go to see the flowers this year in northern California. Those of you who get the Sacramento Bee, let me know when the article appears, unless, of course, I sound stupid and clueless. Which has been known to happen. ©Carol Leigh

I am really liking the coffe filter idea, and that algebra book is wonderful. Lots of ides and not enough time. Just wonderful!

Who knew? Great "Green Photography" - reusing something before it is discarded. The Earth tones, contrast and balance work well. Simple, creative and perfect still life creations.

I'll keep an eye on the Sacramento Bee. Thank you again for your continued work on your wildflower and fall color reports. Excellent job Carol!

Thank you, Marsha, for stopping by and commenting. I took a look at YOUR blog and man, you are one BUSY person! Loved the shot of the raccoon. --Carol Leigh on the (today) sunny Oregon coast
