First Day of School 2009

We have a tradition for this day… the boys put on their first day of school outfits, and sit on our porch and I snap away.

Typically by the 3rd image, the scene has deteriorated pretty rapidly. Monkey faces, laughter, hands on ears, big grins, giggles… the list could go on and on.

I’m lucky to get a decent image for memory sake (although the out takes from the day are always favorites when you take a trip down memory lane).

Wanted to finish the image a little differently so I turned to Topaz Simplify. This app, which is part of the Topaz Suite (the Adjust module, rocks!), allows you to add drawing and painting effects to an image- this is called hard pencil… again, something different…

The original image of these two crazy boys is below…

Enjoy!
