Spring has arrived rather early this year.  I had wanted more of a winter but admit to enjoying the longer days and warmer temperatures.  Been busy the last week or so - and don't see that changing in my immediate future.  And I haven't been out on what I would call a 'proper' shooting trip for what feels like a long time (though it's probably been a week or so).  I have been keeping up with the daily photo challenge and using that to experiment with subjects and processes that are new for me.  I don't believe that a new direction is coming out of the daily shooting challenge - I have gained some experience and knowledge that I didn't have before and expect to use again in one fashion or another.  In this example, I used layers in Photoshop to add a texture to the original image, experimenting with different blending modes and opacities.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
