gift to myself

I rarely edit my photos, although I love the artistic effects of layers and textures. I've owned Photoshop Elements for several months and all I do is crop and use the Auto Fix, one click and I am done. December Views has been an opportunity to focus on my shutterbug passion and I decided to force myself to learn a technique or two before the New Year. I finally sat still long enough this morning with a half pot of coffee and photos from our visit to Padre Island last week. The days were foggy, cool and lazy. I captured some moments that don't need much editing, but definitely deserved some playfulness. I hope you enjoy my gift.
