Patti Moed is taking us back to the basics for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #126–namely, the ABC’s. She’s starting at the very beginning with the letter A. This challenge runs from noon on Saturday until the next Friday.
The featured picture for the post was taken in Australia of a store window at night anticipating Christmas.

I wanted to create a double exposure, so I went to the guided section of Photoshop and started playing. My edition did was too old and didn’t feature the double exposure effect.
It did have some other options. The first picture is a paintbrush effect. You just wave the magic brush across your picture to give it more of a painted look.
When I saw the puzzle guided feature, I had to try it. Most of you know that I am addicted to digital jigsaw puzzles. One of the steps in the guided instructions was to remove pieces. I’m not sure what you are supposed to do with them after you take them out, but I did what most puzzlers do – laid them on the picture until I could figure out where they went. Of course we all know where they go, but I didn’t figure out why we were supposed to remove them in the first place. This is not a puzzle you can play.
The two men playing here were my blogging friend, the Eternal Traveler’s husband whom she calls Mr. ET from Australia any my husband from America. It was wonderful to have them visit us for a week and travel in the US just before the COVID restrictions hit.
Both of these pictures work for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Sunset to Sunrise started Dec. 1.
Have fun everyone, and don’t forget to check back with both of these challenges and visit some new friends and check in on some familiar faces as well.
