Pullin a "Late" Nighter

Straight to the point.
I am tired.
Tired. Tired. Tired.
Go to bed? Me? Psh. That never happens 'till around 2 AM!
Why?
Because I am unorthodox I guess.
Hehe..sorry for being random and rambling.
Going to link up to a few of the Tuesday Challenges and get some photos ready for link-ups that aren't up until tomorrow!

First off, Trendy Treehouse! The theme these is Tint. Gosh this could be interpreted in SO MANY WAYS. However I chose this way:
Tints and a funny face
I took this photo tonight of little man in his playroom. I must've snapped at the perfect moment to have captured that face. LOL! Anyways this action is from Nelly Nero's B&W collection & it's called "Ain't(and/or Isn't) Life a Peach? It's a black and white action that has a peach tint to it. After it runs the tint is usually more subtle but I amped it up to give it that "tint-y" tint feel for the theme :D To see more tints to over to the Trendy Treehouse by clicking the button below!

Sweet Shot Tuesday
Sweetness!
There's nothing that says "Sweet" more than a man getting his wife flowers for their 56th wedding anniversary! This is my Pappaw and Mammaw. On December 31st of 2010 they were officially married for 56 years! (For you all wondering and it's okay if you are my Mammaw has a disease called Huntingston Disease..it's a terrible life-altering disease that there has not been a cure found for yet and my Pappaw has been taking care of her splendidly for the last 40 years. He is a Saint in my eyes! He works more than anyone I've ever seen!) Want more sweetness? Click below! Also, the theme at Simplicity is Happiness and this photo doesn't 'say' happiness it SCREAMS it!

Edit:
After
I just used some basic editing to give a little warmth and 'pop' to the photo. Added contrast, brightened up a bit, smoothed the skin and played with the colors! I really love the final result! To see more head on over to Paper Heart Camera!

I think its great that you can be so organised with your photos for the challenges - hardly ever have time for Tues and Wed posts as I'm always on catch up with returning comments for other days.

I love that look in your tint photo - thats so cool. Congratulations to your dad on being such a devoted carer to your mum. He sure knows what it's like to love and to hold in sickness and in health.

I really like your edited shot aswell - those colours just pop now.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your pictures!! I'm going to have to check out some of the links you gave. What camera/lens do you use? I have a Canon and I recently got a 50mm. I'm loving it, but one of these days I want to upgrade.

Thanks for stopping by yesterday! Hope you're having a great day!

jennykate77 said...

Oh, and I just wanted to say that I love that picture of your grandma and grandpa. My Granny took care of my Grandpa for a long time...just melts my heart to see that pic. My Grandpa passed away last August. I miss him so much. I think my Granny is a saint too...or an angel...something phenomenal.

Deb said...

Kara said...

i should just stay up all night! i barely get 2-3 hours of sleep lately with the way gun has been sleeping. every little noise wakes me up, and pregnancy makes me pee constantly! so at least you're up getting something done while i'm tossing and turning :P

i love dill's facial expressions! as long as we don't get all this crappy snow & whatnot it's calling for, we should still be on for friday. i say that because sean may have to work which leaves me with no car :(

hes goin to louisville tomorrow with his work!

and btw, those flowers are really pretty. so sweet ♥ even all these years later!
