Boise Photo Walk – part 3

We walked into The Grove and there were kids running around and playing in the Fountain.  This is where the Capitol City Market starts.  There are all kinds of Artisans here.   We didn’t have time to go into the market and explore.

We then walked down to The Basque Block.   Southwest Idaho has the largest population of Basque’s in the United States, next to their homeland population in Spain.

Week 25 – Fatherhood

The theme this week over at My Four Hens is Fatherhood.   Since my Father is no longer with us…  I wasn’t sure what kind of picture I was going to take. 

I was at my Son Eric’s house Saturday afternoon and his Son, My Grandson Carter was showing off his new bike riding skills to me.   No training wheels.   Well…  he biked across the yard and didn’t quite turn quick enough and crashed.   His little toe was bleeding.    I quickly grabbed my camera and captured this as Eric was applying the band.aid to Carters toe.

Custom Watermark {brush}

Do you know how to create a custom watermark for your photography?   Here is a great tutorial on creating your own custom brush.   I made one a couple of years ago…  which I rarely used, so I created a new one using my own handwriting font.  I probably should start using one again.

Hint…  To create the copyright symbol  the keystrokes are  Alt 0169

I used a different font for this one.  (some handwriting fonts don’t have the copyright symbol)

I Love This Shot

I had a hard time deciding which photo that I want to contribute to the Boise Photo Walk contest going on over at Love That Shot.   I would REALLY love to win the Lens Baby.   I’ve been drooling over them for quite some time.  The composer  is exactly what I want, too.    I chose to enter this beautiful rose that I captured from The Rose Gardens in Julia Davis Park.   I really love the colors!     Wish me luck on the contest!

Boise Photo Walk

Saturday was the World Wide Photo Walk.  I went on the photo walk with my niece and daughter in law.  It was a lot of fun.   It was sponsored by Love That Shot, two local sisters. I discovered a few fun places walking around Boise that I’ve never noticed while driving.
We started off at the rose gardens in Julia Davis park.  There sure are some beautiful roses there!
