Double Exposure Challenge: Cat Shadow on Beach

I thought the brightness in the cat picture mixed well with the brightness of the white sand of Destin, Florida. I wished I could have cropped the picture with the cat in it so there wasn't a huge chair on the water! Tiger (the cat) was actually watching a bug fly by, witch is also in the shadow but isn't visible through the sand. I used Instagram to apply the Hefe filter to the shadow picture and BlendCam to do the double exposure part.

Nostalgia Challenge: Ex Libris

When I see Kindles and e-readers, I can't help but get a little sad over all the things those e-books are missing. The weight of literature in your hands. The feeling of turning pages one by one. The texture of the cover. The wonderful smell of an old book that's been sitting on a shelf for years, waiting for me to choose it.
