i didn't really do much to this photo, slight adjustments to levels and contrast, set the background to
lighten blend at 100% and added a layer of kim's new texture "mayzee" on multiply at 44%.
the texture was perfect to add depth to the solid wall of fog that was right at the tide line.
if you've been following me for a bit you've probably heard me mention my dock out at the cabin. the poor old thing is really past it's prime. it's tilted, soggy, wobbly. it no longer serves any working purpose. it's not sturdy enough to tie anything on to, almost scary to walk on. one side has a beautiful covering of neon green algae, the other a fantastic crop of barnacles.
my husband loathes the dock, probably because it no longer serves any working purpose. he refers to the poor thing as "the wood pile." every winter i shamelessly beg him to let my dock stand for another year. every spring i hold my breath as we round the corner of the spit - is it there? cullan tells me if it's okay to look or not.
the dock is my happy place. when the sun shines and there's no work to do, there is no better place in the world than the dock. with a book, a cup of coffee, some knitting. or nothing at all. the dock makes everything just a bit more perfect. heck i wish i had a dock at my town home...
gerry tells me he doesn't get my obsession with the dock. i just point to his barc-o-lounger.
please, give yourself a mini-vacation and go see all the other beautiful work at texture tuesday!
