1. Old and New
Old -  a photo of a vintage crayon box, my research says it is from around 1890. New - a box of Crayola crayons. I used one of Kim Klaussen's textures to add a little more interest.


2. Night Photography 
This is a photo I took from the end of our pier, with the lights from the house reflecting on our kayaks and on the water. I thought it created some interesting reflections, but realized I have a lot to learn about Night Photography. Since I am a beginner, I can't wait to learn more. (So much to learn and never enough time).

3. Music 
Music could be an old Beatles album cover & record saved from my childhood (I suppose that dates me). Or it could be a photo of a row of saxophones that are part of a marching band sculpture located in a local park. On this one I added a texture I created from an old piece of sheet  music.

4. Cheesy 
Yes, this is about as cheesy as it gets. I talked my husband into posing...trying to steal the cheese from the top of a pile of mouse traps.

5. Sun
I thought this one was going to be easy...sunset, sunrise, sunflowers...(I took photos of them all), but I wanted something a little different, so this is a shot taken very early in the morning, as the sun was just peaking out behind my cherished waterwheel (built by hand with lots of love, by my father).

Loing the sun. You get your hubby to do the coolest things!

Your sun photo is gorgeous! I wanted to photograph the sunrise or sunset, but I never quite made it!

Night photography is definitely a challenge for beginners like you and me! Luckily I have a tripod, which makes it a little easier.

Very nicely done Kay - loving your first and last shots.

What a great set! I also find that adding textures to still life adds so much interest. LOVE, love the cheesy one!:) And the last one is just gorgeous!

Fabulous photos!! I just LOVE your old/new (that is some awesome treasure you have with the old crayon box) and the music shots are both incredible.
