During and after the busy time getting ready for the Christmas holiday, it was nice to take a break now and then and play with my photos. Here are the results.
Some notes on a few of these images:
#9 and #10 were created as part of a fun challenge for one of my Flickr groups, Kreative People: Photo Manipulation Art. That challenge gave us a starter image of a peacock feather provided by Flickr user, judith511. #9 was an additional departure for me in that it does not contain any of my images; the second image of the women on bicycles is in the public domain from Wikimedia Commons.
#11 was created for a similar challenge in the same group. The starter image for that one, Pearls, Lace and Roses, was provided by Flickr user plumnutz.
