Theme Thursday: STAR


Wow! I'm actually participating in a Theme Thursday!!! I don't usually have a great idea to match the theme until AFTER Thursday, so I was completely bedazzled when I saw the theme for this week was STAR! When I saw these stars at the fair last week, I took about a dozen pictures. I don't often wish I had a tripod, but I would have given anything to have taken a great picture with a slow shutter speed so I could show the lights transferring from one star to the next. I even looked around for something to prop on, but didn't see anything with a view that would work. Not to mention, M was like a Tasmanian devil by this time of the evening and it took both of us to contain her!

So, I took a mediocre shot and edited the mess out of it. I'm rather fond of the results. Maybe not something I'd scrapbook, but definitely something I'd keep messing around with. So here, my friends, is my contribution for STAR theme Thursday.


(Yes, I'm posting early, but my mornings are rushed, so I'll want to contribute Thursday morning and won't have time to upload AND post!)

No...its a beaut as we say here. (actually no one says that anymore...but it's still a beaut photo :-) How great that you found just the right thing!! I am finding photography frustrating at the moment and I sympathise with your need for a tripod.

Fun stars. Love the vivid color. Yes, you need to get a tripod. I had mine forever, but only recently began to pull it out.
