yard with a view

Hello, isn’t this pretty? I got a wee plastic lens around Christmas called the Diana that can fit on my Nikon and just last week started fooling around with it. A lot of hit and misses. There is a tiny flare from the sun in this pic. It works best in bright light I’ve discovered. A lot of people can do this in photoshop and now of course the iphone has some crazy photo apps but it was fun for me to have a go with the dreamy stuff. These are two birch trees in my backyard.

Still painting…..should be done soon. Ahh. Also……11 days until New York! Very excited. I am going to do a post with the recommendations I’ve received on what to do. Any other must dos or cool shops or artisty things or great cheap eats?
