A colorful walk ...

     Taking a couple of day's off from jornaling, still adjusting to my new schedule and still having some computer issues. This is an entry from last July, the photos could have very easily been taken last week because our winter has been so warm and sunny this year.

     I expect my collages to get better now that I am taking photoshop classes. The classes are going pretty well by the way.    

                                     

     This was such a beautiful Saturday morning. I took a colorful walk around the local Swap Shop and this is some of what I saw there.

     I bought Rainier Cherries and ate most of them while I was there, the coconut guy was there with his machete, cutting the tops off of coconuts and serving them up with a coconut shell scoop or with a couple of straws. No pictures of that, I am still not to comfortable asking to take random photos of people, to bad.

     On my way home I found a new nature preserve less than 2 miles from my house. I think it will prove to be a new favorite place for quiet walks and photos:-)

     It is really raining out, perfect time for a Saturday afternoon nap. Without all of this rain things would not look so lovely and green here.

In a public market, I'm sure the vendors are used to tourists...so snap away. :-)

Oh, the pics look nice.  Reminding me of spring to come.  If you have time, do you mind telling me what type of program you have for photos?  Is it called PhotoShop?  Where do you get it?
I like to mess around with things like that.  I'm enjoying PaintShopPro.  
Thanks
Sonya
