The theme this week at the WordPress photo challenge is between. I’ve been working on a lot of things lately, too many perhaps, and I have decided that I have to choose between a few of them and make a choice about what I am going to focus on for the rest of the summer.
I was out biking a few weeks ago, and since my point and shoot camera is always with me, I got this shot while I was taking a rest:
I used the macro setting on the camera and was really pleased with the way the background was blurred, giving the field a bit of a romantic feel.
One of my work projects for this summer is learning Adobe Illustrator. I’m taking an on-line course that you can do at your own pace. I created this image from my original photo in Illustrator using Image Trace:
I imported my .JPEG file photo into Illustrator then chose Image Trace-Low Fidelity Photo. Then I cropped the image.
I was pleased with the result, but what do you think? Learning Illustrator is one of the projects that I am having to decide if I want to continue. What that means though, is that I need to decide between this blog and the Illustrator class. Because both the blog and class require on-line hours, I feel like I can only do one or the other if I am to keep the rest of my life and work in balance. I chose the class, it was actually a hard choice for me to make, I love writing this blog. I felt in the short term that the class needed to take priority, so this blog will be on hiatus for the rest of the summer. Since I am behind in follow-up visits to other blogs I am hoping to take a bit of time every day to visit a few. I am hoping this will keep my in the loop and excited to resume blogging in the fall.
As always, your comments are welcome below, and I would like to thank all of you who have stopped by to take a look at my blog.
