My daughter made these cookies today. It’s great that she can make them all by herself now–except she does get tired of the baking part after the first batch comes out of the oven. I usually give her a break and finish the baking.

Day 50 of my 365 project. Seems like a milestone but there’s still so much left. I’ve decided I love pictures of shoes. There’s something so poignant about a pair of empty shoes. These are my daughter’s much worn, now outgrown ballet flats. Soon to be on their way to the Goodwill store.

I had some fun with the processing here. I’m still such a novice at using Photoshop Elements. My main problem is that I don’t know when to stop, and also I can never remember what I did to get a certain effect. That’s two problems I guess. At least.

Here’s a creamier version that I also like:

I recently have admired several images of stacked bowls and other dishes. Also the theme for the week over at Shutter Sisters 365 is White, so here you go: my white bowls. I used the Golden Light texture from Eddi 07 although I did change to image to B&W before I used it as a texture. Baby steps…

My husband took the good camera to work today to take some pictures of a construction site and left me with our little point and shoot. I tried to get a good shot with it because I used to be able to get good shots with it, but it just wasn’t happening. So I waited all day for Mitch to come home and then I frantically ran around trying to set up a shot. I took a bunch of shots of a candle/lantern light and a bunch of shots of this apple. This was the next to last shot I took. I had been going for a close up of the apple and cloth but as an afterthought I pulled back a little. It’s not perfect, but as it’s almost 10 p.m., I’ll take it.
