Nice to see you!

Three major events occurred for me last year (2010), all in the space of about 2 weeks. I turned 50. The following day I got married. Two weeks later, my oldest daughter became pregnant with her first child and my first grandchild.

Most middle-aged people will tell you that in their minds, they still feel 20 something. It's the same for me.

Wasn't it only yesterday that I was planning a night out with guys from the surf club? That gorgeous new perm. Flaired, cuffed denims and the red t-shirt with the off-the-shoulder frill. Corked platform wedgies. **sigh**

Suddenly I'm looking in the mirror and wondering how 30 years can flash by so damned quickly!

So here I am in cyberspace, sharing my genuine shock and horror with anyone who'll listen and maybe I'll even meet some other over 50s who find themselves in the same predicament!

Welcome to my dilemna!!

Practise Makes Perfect

I say that with hope in my voice!

Most of you know that I have never been a fan of photoshop. It's a complex editing program that takes a long time to master. Especially for me.

My closed mind has only made it more difficult to learn - it was the same for me, years ago, when I was learning to work a computer for the first time. I believed that I wasn't smart enough ... and so became the self fulfilling prophecy ... until one day, I believed that computers weren't THAT difficult to use ... and so my mind opened up to the possibilities.

My mind has now opened to the possibilities of photoshop, which is kind of funny because I think that most professional portrait photographers use photoshop for very basic editing.  Presets, filters and actions are the popular way to go, to enhance photography these days.

I guess I'm falling behind the times and need to catch up!

The most frustrating thing, is that I want to know it all NOW and I lose patience when there are so many steps to each process!

Anyway, just to keep Rebel Mardi happy, I am sharing one more photo from the shoot, which includes her beautiful grandson ...

I hope that one will keep her happy while I work on the remaining photos. Three fabulous smiles!

Even though there were only four of us, morning tea with the girls was very enjoyable today.

It's date day with Adoring Husband tomorrow, so I need to get to bed. It will be an early start!

Nite all.
