F E S T I V E

Welcome to PICTURE PERFECT

a weekly photo-blog

rules (not that anyone pays them the slightest bit of attention) for the newbies

Each week a theme will be posted up on Wednesday, and you are invited to put up your best picture

with that theme in mind, it should be just

 ONE and ORIGINAL,

 not off the internet,

then post a comment on this page

so that everyone can link to your page and see your pic.

By all means mention your camera and lens used!

Open that page for viewing for all...and visit as many as you can! try and post a decent size pic on your blog page, so much is lost if the pic is too small or too big.

The entries will close at midnight on Friday.

Most importantly....have fun out there!

 

Festive

 

taken with my cybershot digital cam on the black and white setting, and this time I did soften the edges

 

Soft lights

Arabian nights

velvet dresses

gifts of gold

desert breezes

waft of perfume

 clear sky

a precious cheek

gentle kiss

joyous

 festive

 memory

a fleeting magic

carpet ride

  1. Really well done. And, I want to thank you. Unwittingly, you have helped my husband decide I REALLY DO need a better camera. I think there might just be another gift that is going under the tree.

  25. I love the shot miss foto! I also love the added softened edges. I think it directs the attention to the more important part of this beautiful image!

    Thanks so much for your kind comments on mine as well! I apologize about posting mine so early. I felt the need to with good reason (we had a car stolen yesterday - not yet found) and I was worried that I would be cut short on time later this week while dealing with all of this chaos.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!
