More Snow

A couple of lines from Paul Simon's song I Am A Rock came to mind as I put together this collage:

Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
(These pictures, however, were not taken through the window. I had to go out there to get them!)

I truly love the way you are making your collage, you are so creative and i hope you dont mind me borrowing your ideas. they speak a total story all in one frame instead of several photos in a row, today it says Snow for sure

I really like the border style!

DawnTreader said...

Sandra, thank you. Just glad if I can be of some inspiration. With this snowy weather we've been having all January (and still), I feel that I'm just taking the same pictures over and over again, even when I do get out with the camera, because I don't get very far ;) Collages is a way to do something a bit different. So there are going to be collages and experiments here all week this week!

Rae, one of the things I've been experimenting with is using the picture itself for border, instead of just one colour (there is a little button to click for that). Very interesting effects sometimes.

Dan Felstead said...

Dawn Treader...WOW...I have really gotten behind and missed some of your great pictures! I like the borders also. So different than your run of the mill black or white borders. I love the design of the house and also the ice crystals. Sorry I have been AWL (absent without leave)lately...busy and very unorganized of late.

Dan, with your number of followers it must be a tough job keeping up with everyone while also busy with things in the so-called Real Life. I appreciate your efforts to catch up here whenever!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
