Wow!

Pam, over at Mind Trips, took several photos of my cats and turned them into this! I don't know about you, but I absolutely LOVE it. I am going to print it off, frame it and give it to my dad. He will absolutely adore it. If you haven't been to her blog, you are in for a real treat. She is a genius with Photoshop and I mean that. She is incredibly talented and a wonderfully generous person. She is very active in conservation efforts and is teaching her grandchildren to take care of our planet as well.


Not long ago, I saw the artwork, above, on her blog. I contacted her and she allowed me to use it for a PowerPoint presentation I was making and also to use it on the cover of our annual conservation banquet programs. It fit perfectly with our conservation theme and received rave reviews from all of the people attending the event.


And finally, Pam took the mountain photo I was complaining about a few days ago (above) and removed the powerlines and poles (below).


Now that's a photo worth looking at!

KUDOS TO PAM! Thanks, Pam, and thanks, Laurie for sharing this incredibly talented lady. I bookmarked her for future visits.

She must think very highly of you, Laurie. Her word is more than worthy of framing.

Laurie said...

Squirl, I love it too. She's really talented, isn't she?

Chani, I'll watch for your email. :)

Mary, I'm glad to share her blog with you. She's a wonderful person and so very gifted.

Gorgeous work by Pam...and it's amazing how she could just remove those power lines.

Do you think she can she put some of the hair back on the places where I'm losing it off my head?

Laurie said...

WW, do you want me to ask? While she's at it she can shave a couple of inches off of my nose... ;-)

Carol said...

As always, your pictures are lovely. I have a lot of catching up to do on your blog. Good to be back. Hope you're well.

Pam said...

Laurie, so glad you liked the pics, it was fun. I was afraid the cats might have been a bit out there. And thank you for the compliments, you are very kind.

As for "Within Without," yup, we can add hair. = )

I had no idea you could do such amazing things with photoshop.

I guess "photographic proof" is a thing of the past now.

Anvilcloud said...

She does good work.

Cuppa said...

I also linked up with Pam through you gals and now have her blog bookmarked for daily reading. Well, as daily as I can get these days. Must admit that my visits to any blogs have been pretty scarce lately. Don't know why!!

Pam's art is amazing and her writing uplifting. Thanks for sharing these pics with us.

Thanks also for continuing to stop by my blog and share the joy of my new Grandbaby with me.

I'm not familiar with Photoshop, but I've seen some of the stunning results, such as what you've got here. This makes it so much easier to encourage creativity with the camera. I'm all for it. That top photo of the cats reminds me of fractals. If you can, check them out, as they are simply stunning.

Gina said...

Much better without the power lines, you're right!

MsLittlePea said...

That's cool. I want Photoshop! Yay Pam!

catnapping said...

Hehe, I wish someone could photoshop all the poles, lines, and cars from our whole state!

love,
cat

Laurie said...

Carol, so good to see your typing! I've missed you!

Pam, thank you so much. I absolutely love what you've done to my photos. And the cat one is absolutely adorable!

Thomas, I have Photoshop and can't do much more than auto fix things with it...I wish I had Pam's knowledge and talent.

AC, that she does. You're no slouch with Photoshop either.

Cuppa, she's extremely talented and has such a dear heart. Your granddaughter is beautiful and I totally understand you wanting to spend most of your time with her.

Bonita, thank you, I'll check it out!

Gina, no kidding!

Mspea, I have it, but have no clue how to use it. I need to take a class or spend some time playing with it I guess. :)

Cat, I totally agree!

butterfly girl said...

Totally awesome!!!

If I had more time I could do stuff like that I guess. She's good.

KGMom said...

Pam is a very gifted artist. I love to visit her blog and see her newest creations.
Isn't Photoshop amazing--actually it's scary. I don't think you could use photographic evidence anymore!

Cathy said...

That is just gorgeous! Now I know what Pam's been doing this past week. I should have guessed she'd be creating something lovely.

How the heck did she make those telephone poles disappear?

Thanks for sharing Pam and her work.

Laurie said...

Butterfly, she's amazing, isn't she??

KG, I think, so far, they have ways to tell if photos have been doctored, at least according to CSI they do. ;-)

Cathy, I have no idea how she made that happen. I am in awe of her talents.

jen said...

Kristen said...

Laurie said...

Jen, she is so talented!
