Happy St. Patty’s Day! To stave off a good pinching, my blog is wearing green today, but not just any green. This green is coming from my hometown’s Wild Hog Cook-Off which is where we disappeared to for the weekend. It’s always a dusty affair. It’s hot. It’s noisy. It hosts the world’s shortest parade. But there’s always good food, good friends, and a carnival.

Well, that’s enough green…I hope. Can you tell that I’ve been having fun with photo editing lately? I’m using the free program Picnik. If you don’t have it yet, you should get it. It has some super awesome photo effects like Cinemascope and 1970’s and Cross Process which is what I used to give these carnival photos a vintage feel. I’m sure I’ll look back at my pictures one day and say” What was I thinking?” but for now, I’m having fun. The only downfall to this program is the hours wasted sitting in front of the computer giving one photo forty different looks.
So, I’m sorry for all of the funky photo editing lately. I’m sure there will be a lot more to come. I apologize for that, too.
