Story morsel

©2010 by DiDi Hendley
Been working on the story every chance I get. Got a hint of a title...thought I'd share this little morsel before chores take me away...It's story-related.

Looking back, her life's been a whirlwind –
spinning uncontrollably yet with discipline.
Fate takes us in directions that we cannot know-
and if we knew, would we then go?
In search of a dream, he became her world.
Through the days, the journey and the love unfurled.
But when the journey draws to its end
Will the lessons and the love they shared transcend?

Bottom BBDD Photo Bar

In honor of my most recent comment (!),  I thought I would share more of my artwork images in the BBDD photobar at the bottom of the page.  Click this Post Title or the image to jump back and forth.

Blaine's Bubble2
This soap bubble is the result of the same bubble overlapping (via PhotoShop). The exterior is completely PS.

Connor: The Angel who Hangs the Moon
(Themed Angel)
Connor holds the Lunar Bubble (shown in top photo bar).

Ally, The Basic Angel
(Basic Angel)
Ally's AB image here was based on her mom's specific idea. Mom appears in the upper right corner, smiling down on her "angel."

Britton, The Basic Angel
(Basic Angel)
Britton's AB image was based on her mom's specific idea. Pronounced "Bree-Ann," Britton's mom asked for an eagle image to be included, and also requested that the Bible's Isaiah 40:31 be printed on her image: "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint."

Jack, Garden Angel
(Series Angel)
Jack sits on a magnolia flower, holding stamen for the bees.

Maya and Madison, The Snow Angels
(Themed Angel)
Maya and Madison peer into a snowglobe with a snowflake inside as they float on a cloud.

Jack, The Guardian Angel of the Sea
(Themed Angel)
Jack is the angel baby who guards the oceans. His staff includes the Alpha Bubble.

Blaine's Bubble
This soap bubble is the result of the same bubble overlapping (via PhotoShop). The bubble center appeared as an eye.

Angel Babies

Intro to my photobar...It just occurred to me that there's no explanation or introduction.  Click this Post Title or the image to jump back and forth.

The Alpha Bubble
This was my first "art" project with soap bubbles, taken 4th of July quite a while ago. The "beams" are photoshopped, but the bubble itself is unretouched photo. I really like the elements (earth, air and with a good imagination water) and the yin-yang effect.

Mikala, the Rainbow Angel
(Themed Angel)
Mikala was playing at a church picnic, running down a hill when I captured her. She was my 2nd Themed Angel Baby.

Rece, Garden Angel
(Series Angel)
Rece was my original AB, (shown in next image), and was my first Garden Angel as well. I had so many flower images in my catalog and nothing to do with them. So, by Divine Intervention...Garden Angels were born.

Rece, Inspiration Angel
(Themed Angel)
Rece, was my first AB. Born several months premature, my first images of him were so sad--he was so small with tubes everywhere. He was about 6 months old in this photo. His mom and I met at a fast-food joint to catch up. Rece's older brother held him on his hip in this shot. So quite a while later I was cleaning up a laptop hard drive and ran across his photo. Searching for respite from a difficult job, I started playing around with his image and voila!

Ally, Garden Angel 
(Series Angel)
Ally Angel is playing in a hydrangea.

Ally, The Time Angel
(Themed Angel)
Ally's photo was from a photo shoot for her AB image--her mom had specific ideas of what she wanted--which was more a Basic Angel. As soon as I saw this image of Ally, I knew she was my Time Angel...had more trouble finding the hourglass than anything. Don't let her steal your time! lol

Michael, Garden Angel
(Series Angel)
Michael is playing in an orange azalea, or mountain azalea.

The Lunar Bubble 
The Lunar Bubble ends the photobar. This is a soap bubble overlayed onto an image of a full moon. I really like how it looks like an opal.
