As of July 1 I began posting my daily photos over at my main blog, A Fresh Perspective.
I found the need to eliminate one blog, and since this one came second, this is the one.
I hope you will choose to join me over at A Fresh Perspective for daily photos, photo challenges,
and some other fun stuff thrown in.

ISO 400, f5.6, 1/250s, white balance custom (from earlier in the day - I forgot to change it for this photo, but I don't think it matters)
We had a much-needed beautiful, sunshiny day today.  A little above freezing, which helped to melt all the ice that has become my driveway.  However, Alex wasn't feeling well today so we stayed home.  Which left me searching for something to photograph.  The sunset was gorgeous, but I didn't want to show just another sunset.  Instead I put one of my carousel horses in my window and played around with getting a different shot.  I cleaned my window inside and out but you can see a little streaking, so I added the Lightly Worn texture from SKC Photography (her textures are FREE by the way - thanks Sharon!) and set the blending mode (?) to soft light.  It helped a little.
I also played around with different blending modes to see what they looked like.  Go here to see what this same photo looks like with the mode set to Difference.  Very cool!  Since I only like to post one photo a day, I resisted the urge to post it here also.  :)

Beautiful. I love putting things in the window at sunset and trying to capture the wonderful light.
