As serendipity would have it, I was playing around, creating merged images with pixlr express early this week and found it quite easy to use. I wanted to place similarly colored flowers in groupings of three in a post, and the collage feature helped tremendously. So you can imagine how happy I was about our photo challenge for this week – Merge! If you’re an amateur photographer like me, this is a fun one to use with your pictures. I shared this on the Daily Post page so use it to create merged images. If you have other free and user-friendly suggestions, do share.
When we take a moment to step away from our comfortable way of doing things and try something new, the familiar becomes a canvas on which we can create new worlds. I got to experiment with textures and colors and more. Hope you like my merged and blended photos… It was fun playing around and I’m looking forwrad to visiting other participants of the challenge.too.
“We shall find in our troubled hearts, where discord reigns, two needs which seem at variance, but which merge, as I think, in a common source – the love of the true, and the love of the fabulous. ” Alfred de Vigny
One thing I love about NYC is how versatile and culturally mixed it is. As you move from one neighborhood to the next, it is easy to forget that this is not the norm everywhere. Sure there is variety in many cities in the US, but we experience the full range of it here. Recently, I celebrated a birthday and my kids took me to a Japanese restaurant for the occasion. The maître d’ and staff brought me a tray with an orchid, a glass of delicious pudding and a happy birthday chocolate added to top it off. I was touched and grateful. Here’s hoping your birthdays and weekends are joyful. More below!
