I Love My Lensbaby! This is one of the images I took in June under Project 365, but didn't pick this one for the highlight image of the day. Sometimes I get in a hurry or I pick a certain photo for a purpose and not necessarily the best image of the day. Sometimes I'm not particularly excited with an image at first and then on a second look...
The image is titled Hush, RAW Image.

Scott moved while I was shooting this image and I liked it better than any of the images that came out clear, Sometimes "accidental" images can be your best or favorite pieces. That's why my motto is "continuous shooting"! I do like to motion the camera when shooting too. However, this one was all on the model.
When thinking of a kitten, you think, soft, fluffy. This image appeals to that description. Makes you "feel" the kitten's softness, the fluffy fur. The hands look comfortable and protective. The bokeh helps the color come together in a pastel, again, "soft" look. This shot makes you think of a "helping hand" or a protector, .....angelic . The "blur" helps with the thought of motion....is he is moving this animal to a "safer" place, shielding it from harm.
Accidental images are much more FUN these days with digital cameras, then they were in film! Film cost way more than an sd card! And "deleting" waste nothing. I think that's why not so "perfect" images have been recognized as "art". Yes, this image is "blurry", but the blur "says" something, it adds to the story. The crop my seem odd, but it also adds movement and emotion to the image. I just love when I'm "surprised" with a sweet shot!

Outside my window...
This is what the excellent Lensbaby creative apertures are for! To make my forestland of green outside my bedroom window, look like a dream. Edited with a graduated layer to take some of the green out.
I'm going to try to have a video made for each month on pics I've taken for this project. Lots of work ahead in the next couple of days. I take about 16 GB of images per month so far as an average! It can become a "chore" sorting through to make a video....but I'm determined to help myself become more "creative" and I do want to sharpen my video skills also. So from time to time, I may post a short vid in place of a pic I took that day. I would like to try recording with my Lensbaby optics! There is a new movie out, "Much Ado About Nothing", that uses Lensbaby optics and lenses to film "flashback" scenes. I need to see this film! See scene below....

This is Bitty Sister, one of several cats we have that all started from a pregnant stray a few years ago. She's still here (we call her Mama) and has quite a family! We got most of the girls ( Lilo, Stitch, Snoflake and Mama) fixed and most of the boys have gone, except Zulu, he's our dark charcoal cat. Beautiful and very furry and friendly, Bitty Sister isn't fixed, but she has had two litters of kittens that she hasn't been able to raise beyond a couple of days. Guess she's just not the "motherly" type. She's always just outside of the door. All our cats are very friendly and kind and have the loudest purrs. I just love'em to death!
I'll have to post pics of them all. Most of them want me to pet them as soon as I go outside and they don't understand that I'm trying to snap a shot...so I get a lot of close-ups. Here's a cool Portrait of Lilo.
Have to venture out this weekend! Do something "Random"!

I moved my Muse optic in and out of zoom focus, while pointing at a covered lamp in low light. Got some really cool textures and flowing color. These images are available for download on my deviantArt page. ~leapdaybride
