I love the family I married into...

And I love that we were able to find el-cheapo plane tickets (Jet Blue rocks!) at the last minute so we could meet our new niece! :-)

Aunt Tea said...

wowzer. really beautiful.

love the tones, especially the muted ones. any processing recipies?

SKELLER said...

Thanks, All :-).

Pam-
All the muted ones are some form of TRA's Pool Party + Lux Soft at varying opacities. And shame on me for not keeping track. If you look at the 4 walking pics you can tell I edited the 2nd two on a different day and couldn't remember the right "mix." sigh.
