Weekend Freebie 03-23-18: Gradient Paint

Each weekend, starting Friday evening, I will be giving away something for free; to start it might only be textures, but as I get more into (digital) mixed media, it might be digital stencils, digital brushes, or even an image that you can use. I hope that you enjoy creating with the freebies.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Favorite Place

This weeks Photo Challenge, Favorite Place, asks us to “share an image of your happy place, a secret spot you love, or a faraway location you return to again and again.” For me that is an easy answer. Chiang Mai, Thailand stole my heart in 2009 and 2010; the actual place that I feel is my home away from home is Horizon Village and Resort.

Camera-M App

I find myself carrying my camera around less and using my iPhone SE more for taking pictures. My go to apps were the stock camera app, Pro Camera, Pro HDR X and 645 Pro.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Story

This weeks Photo Challenge, Story, wants us to “be a visual storyteller.” If you saw my Weekly Photo Challenge for Cheeky, then you’ve seen the egret in the following slideshow. The photos were taken as I was stalking lizards with the egret. He/she didn’t seem to mind me tagging along as long as I was quiet and kept my distance. I took a lot of photos of this great hunter, but the last photo was a one in a million shot! No photoshopping of the lizard, or egret…I didn’t even know that I had gotten that shot until later in the day when I sat down and scrolled through the photos. I just wish I had a lens that was over 300mm that day.
