Friendly Friday: Christmas Preparations

When this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge was posted I was working on my Christmas card for 2019. Rather appropriate for the Christmas Preparations challenge.

I always make a double sided card with a vertical image on one side and a horizontal image on the other. That gives people the option of choosing which photo to display and allowing them to stand or hang the card in either orientation.

The vertical shot on this year’s card, an Eastern Chipmunk posing in the grass.

Friendly Friday: Photo Edits

A contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Photo Edits.

A recent post for Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge made me think of the edits I have made to two shots of trees in the autumn. The two shots are of the same group of trees, one is a vertical composition and the other horizontal.

The vertical shot.

An edited version of the horizontal composition with a film type border added using Snapseed.
