Summer Daze Photo Party: Week 6 Finale

Last week my mom, sister and 6 nieces and nephews dropped in. Sis was visiting my mom in KY and rented a car to drive the 8 hours to visit. We rented a villa on the beach for a few days on Hilton Head Island and hung. Being so far apart we rarely get to be together, so it was a treat. I actually didn't take very many pics, but here's a sampling of our fun...

PhotobucketTwo photos were merged to make this image using the DXP app on the iPhone. Read more about Double Exposures here.
  PhotobucketPhotos were edited and collages were made in PSE 10. Canon EOS 60D, Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 lens, iPhone 3GS, and Florabella Actions were used on these photos.

And just in case you've been following along, I'm still plugging away on my 6x6 summer album. Tutorial and reveal to come...

If you stopped by last week and couldn't comment, I apologize. I scheduled my post and wouldn't ya know that's the day my blog would decide to go all wonky. I was actually driving and unable to get to a computer. I contacted Sarah of One Starry Night on twitter and she was able to fix the coding issue in a matter of seconds. If you ever have computer issues, she's definitely the girl to call. She also does super reasonable design work. (Take a peek at her portfolio.) Plus she's a great photographer to boot. Go check out her latest post filled with bokeh and all things lovely.

  2. What a great time!!!!!!!!!!!! I am always so amazed by how different the shore & surf looks on that side of the country. What a great summer you are giving your kids.

    I was wondering about the comments last week. I had issues with blogger so I figured it was just a blogger thing. Glad you were able to get it resolved.
