A Christmas Photo
From the first moment I saw Reese, the little white goat, I pictured her with a big red bow around her neck for Christmas. I would take her picture and make it into a Christmas card. The trouble is that any good picture I might happen to take is purely by chance. It is a miracle if I get it off my camera and on my computer and it still looks good.
I was determined to make a Christmas card with Reese on the front.
Now Reese is nearly as wild as Notty so after cornering her and putting a big red bow around her neck with Alice and Buttons helping with the positioning, I decided to tuck the blue plastic chain she had on under the bow. You will see how well that worked.
I snapped away as she frolicked around the pen and didn't get anything I am really crazy about and apparently I s_ _ _ at Photoshop. I do hate that word but there are times that it is the only one that fits.
Here are some of the outtakes.
After all that, I have nothing. I'm hoping the fog and clouds will part this weekend so I can torture myself one more time.
Or if you are really good at Photoshop, even marginally good, please feel free to play with any of these for me. I want to cut the goat out and put her in a more Christmassy background and get rid of the blue collar.
