summer skies

At last... the much anticipated summer skies post!! OK, so it was only much anticipated by two people (Hi Natalie! Hi Andrea!), but still. :-) I mentioned in my spring skies post that I would try to do another collage for summer, and two of my favorite blog buddies kept me on track to finish it, checking in and encouraging me along the way. Thanks friends! I probably wouldn't have done it without you! xo

My summer skies collage isn't as much a testament to my photography skills as it is to my memorization skills. Last Friday as I was adding the last photo (no kidding, the LAST photo), Photoshop crashed. Amid fervent prayer to the Photoshop Powers that Be, pleading that I had recently saved my collage, I reopened it to find 7 photos missing. (sinking feeling) I couldn't even remember which photos I had used, let alone where I put them in the collage. It's not like I had 16 photos waiting neatly in a single folder. I was using photos from throughout the summer and two of the photos were from the iPhone vault. (Trust me when I say you don't want to go delving into the hideousness that is my iPhone folder). *cue horror movie soundtrack*

Anyway, I'm pleased to report that no Macs were harmed nor husbands snapped at in the redoing of this collage, and somehow I managed to put things back together.


Hope you all have a wonderful week... and Happy Fall! :-)

These are lovely. The top left one is so gorgeous and I love a bright blue sky with white fluffy clouds! Someday I am going to take a bird on a wire picture. It is on my list!
I am going to try to get mine posted sometime this week. After asking you to get yours up I realize mine aren't quite ready to go. oops.

Oh I've had photoshop crash on me at bad moments and I've had to walk away.

Nice collage of the summer sky that I already miss!

Beautiful! So happy to see your post! Now I need to get going with mine. Eek! I know all to well the iPhone photo horror...AND I have a lowly PC to try to deal with all of the photos I download from my phone. What a pain!
So glad you were able to recover from the crash and that no computers or family members were harmed in the process. ;)
