I always wanted an orchid -- my momma can grow them, well, actually she can grow anything! So now that I bought one -- I can assure you this plant is in trouble! If you have any suggestions, please let me know --
This is what I did to get the these shots --
This was quite a contraption. I made no adjustments to these photos. I have been trying to shoot in camera raw, using the manuel setting, planning my exposure in the camera. Trying to grow in my execution is becoming a priority for me. I really did like how the background read as gray. I don't have any foam core board, however, I have heard rumors that it does exist in Istanbul. I have yet to see any. I did see an art supply store the other day in a village next to the Bosporus. That will be one of my adventures next week.
Now the question I was asked was "What brought us to Istanbul?" My husband took a position with an oil and gas company. So, for the first time in 30 years he actually has a job where he works for someone else. We have been self-employed since we were married in 1981, so this has been a real adjustment, for both of us, on many levels. We have been here a year now. I was thinking the other day how familiar things are now; compared to what it was for me when we first arrived. The area, the language and the grocery store are not so scary! (I probably wouldn't have gotten through any of them without Shana!) I really can go on about this for way too long -- please ask me anything -- anytime! How many of you have had to look at a map to see where Turkey is? I had too when Terry asked me if I would come with him --
I am looking forward to more adventures in Turkey and Europe -- Thanks for stopping by -- Love, Love!
