Macro Friday

Sweet baby eyelashes!
 I guess by now she is not so much a "baby" anymore since she is nearly 13 months old.
This is also the time (apparently) when everyone and their mother ask you when you are going to have another baby..then some even take it a step further and make it seem like I will be doing an injustice to Seraphina if I don't supply her with a younger sibling ASAP.  Pretty Please.
Anyone else have that problem?

You know I love texture..and I love I could not resist to combine the two in the shot above.
Here is the original shot:

For the edit, I brought it into Photoshop, where I converted it to b/w and I bumped up the contrast a smidge.  Then I added a grunge layer and a bokeh layer..both of which I found HERE. Both of them were on "soft light" blending mode with the fill opacity dropped down to about 70%.
I then "erased" the texture from her eyelashes/lid and burned in that same area.
That's it.

Have a great weekend!

love that photo! i just want to kiss that head of wavy hair!
we just keep getting asked when we are having a baby period. apparently marriage=baby (it doesn't). maybe one day we'll surprise people, but for now, we like our furbaby :)

stopping by from Macro Friday! love the editing you did for this photo!

on a side note, sometimes i can't believe the audacity of people! although i am not yet married and don't have any children, i couldn't imagine having people try to dictate that for you!
