Well, I finally got the second assignment finished!! It seems like it took me forever to get around to it due to the holidays, but here they are. Portrait mode was rather fun to use. I really like the effect! The two toys are ones that the dogs got for Christmas and I thought they were rather cute. LOL. The pink "thing" is a scarf that a friend made me for Christmas. It is so warm and soft - I just love it! It made for an interesting picture. The last photo is one of my ornamental grasses - I just love grasses and they look great during the winter too. Thanks for looking!!
