An Elephant in the Jungle
What do you think of this elephant? It is another Lensbaby attempt. I was trying very hard to get the focul point on the elephants eye. I did not succeed very well, but out of all the photos I took today, this was the closest. This is a wooden sculpture with actual ivory husks (I probably should not admit that) that my mother had for many, many years. I do not know if she purchased it herself or if it was a gift. I am sure that at the time it was all very legal, just like her real ivory earrings!
A real ivory tusked elephant…
I tried converting the image to black and white but I was not happy with it. It will take a while to get the hang of this Lensbaby – but it will be fun learning! I finished up the ceremony photos today from the wedding. I went on to the formal/fun photos, but Photoshop kept shutting down on me. I guess I had done enough for today! I will try to finish tomorrow. The weather warmed up today. Willie is barbecuing us a nice steak for dinner. That has always been one of my favorites. When my brother’s and I were growing up and it was our birthday, our mother always gave us a choice of what to have for dinner. I always chose steak! I don’t remember what Frankie and Howard chose. I will have to ask them!
