Open for Coffee

I love playing around in Photoshop.  Here's another Before and After of the open sign in our local coffee shop Viento y Agua on 4th and Termino in Long Beach, CA.  

I duplicated the image, changed the blend mode, added a few layers of different textures changing the blend mode on each.  Added a solid color adjustment layer and changed the blend mode on that too. Used the crop tool to extend the image, filled it with a white border and used the dissolve blend mode. Too much fun!!

Christmas Eve Morning

Christmas Eve morning was a perfect day, warm and toasty inside and cool and rainy outside.  We walked to the local coffee shop, Viento y Agua on 4th near Termino where we sat outside with our lattes and a shared bagel with peanut butter.  We almost ended our dog walk there since the rain just wasn't letting up but we decided to keep on treking.  My the time we got to the Colorado Lagoon, the rain had stopped, the sun was peaking out and the dogs got their chance to run and play off leash.

More Before and Afters

 Had some time today to play around in Photoshop with some images that I shot on our dog walk this Christmas Eve morning.  It rained all night long and even sprinkled a bit on the dog walk but it was a beautiful and mostly clear morning as the dogs, Joe and I ventured out to the park, the lagoon and the much needed coffee shop.  Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
