Mosaic Monday: Shades of Summer

Oh, the shades of summer.... from the beach to the backyard, summer is a time to enjoy special moments in time! For me, summer means trips to the beach and time to read those novels I've put off all year. This year, it's also meant lacing up those shoes and going for long walks through the neighborhood.




For today's mosaic, I tried to go for a softer look by altering the saturation a bit. The colors were more vivid on my originals. I still didn't quite get there on the "soft" look.

For more Mosaic Mondays, visit Mary at Little Red House! After looking at the beautiful flowers she is sharing in her mosaic today, you can scroll down and find even more Mosaic Mondays to visit.

Happy Monday!

Oh I think you've done very well with the soft look...you've captured that ethereal feel of summer.

Hmmm...very pretty. I'll have to play with my photos before turning them into mosaics one of these days. I usually run out of time.

Have a happy Monday!

Roban, this is a great mosaic! I too have been putting some good miles on my running shoes (but mostly walking in them...lol).

Roban, your photos make me want to lounge in a hammock. I'd say you achieved your soft look. Very nice!

Looks like you are having a very relaxing summer break Roban and enjoying your photography and blogging.

Beautiful mosaic and photos especially the one of your daughter. I must practise doing some mosaics they look like fun.
