Two days ago I started a new class with Kim Klassen…Start 2 Finish. An 8 week course taking us from the conception of a photograph to the finalized version of that conceived idea. As class members we are invited to post to a ‘secret’ Pinterest board. As a veteran ‘pinner’ I happily started pinning away when I happened upon a photo that totally inspired me. Here’s the blog it originally was pinned from: http://nely-bluehortensia.blogspot.com/ and the actual photo that stopped me and made me smile:

When a photo touches me I sometimes feel the need to interpret it. So today I visited the abandoned properties across from me where I knew there were grape hyacinths and daffodils growing unloved. I didn’t have any pretty teapots but this big mug worked out pretty well for me.
For those of you who are Friday Finds girls here’s the metadata and overlay information: ISO 125; 50 mm Nikon prime lens; f/1.8; 1/180s. I brought it into Lightroom and adjusted the color and added a bit of a vignette. I altered it with cool grunge overlay on soft light at 61% opacity; branded on soft light at 78% opacity. Both were worked with an adjustment layer and a soft brush set at 20%. The text is Trubble set to pin light at 76% opacity. This is a posting for Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds.
