"Peace Day" provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982........ Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense." *Join in shaPeace Day2012-09-26 09:30:00625

Photograph On His Mantle Texture Blend

All he had left of her was a photograph on his mantle, the day the sea called her back to from whence she came...

This texture blend is a combination of two of my original shots overlayed with grunge textures and added extras telling a story.

Wishing you all a creative weekend, make it a good one!

This week I have had +Lee Daniels in my thoughts constantly, thanks to the wonderful +Beth Akerman Please see my shared post prior to this from Beth.

Remembering Lee with so many smiles and how much she used to make me laugh... an amazing soul who I am so thankful to have met thanks to G Plus <3

#MemoriesOfLee forever in our hearts...


+Lee Daniels would have wanted to be remembered with smiles... She used to call me Principessa/Princess Catharine and reading one of her comments to me made me do just that... #FleurdeLee

As I said in my post yesterday, we used to talk about designing apparel together and this comment brought on smiles through the deep sadness of losing her:

Scroll down to my comment and then see Lee's, she was a priceless soul... I will always miss her! And so aptly this link was for +FloralFriday and featured one of her most beautiful floral shots that she loved so much...

 http://blog.danielsimage.com/poppy-lightan-older-film-piece-natural-sunlight-proviafor-floralfriday-with-the/

I am sure that many of you who commented on her poppy, will smile looking back at yours and hers too... ♥

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~ For all those who knew Lee ~

Do not stand at my grave and weep 
I am not there. I do not sleep. 
I am a thousand winds that blow. 
I am the diamond glints on snow. 
I am the sunlight on ripened grain. 
I am the gentle autumn rain. 
When you awaken in the morning's hush 
I am the swift uplifting rush 
Of quiet birds in circled flight. 
I am the soft stars that shine at night. 
Do not stand at my grave and cry; 
I am not there. I did not die. 

Poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wishing we could have visited Blanes together where I shot these flowers, they remind me of you, Lee, filled with sunshine even during the dark moments... You are constantly missed... 

I hope somewhere up there you are having a blast with my late brother dearest Lee, you two would have got on like a house on fire, both gone too soon and never forgotten... I love you +Lee Daniels

Daydream Believer - Vintage Style Texture Blend

Today's #colouroftheday is GREEN +Heidi Anne Morris 🌿

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings.
The six o'clock alarm would never ring.
But it rings and I rise,
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes.
The shavin' razor's cold and it stings.

Cheer up, sleepy jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.

You once thought of me
As a white knight on a steed.
Now you know how happy I can be.
Oh, and our good times start and end
Without dollar one to spend.
But how much, baby, do we really need.

Today's #colouroftheday is BLUE - Texture Blend Photography

For +Heidi Anne Morris 's daily colours ⛵️🏝️ 🌊

Just The Two Of Us

I see the crystal raindrops fall
And the beauty of it all
Is when the sun comes shining through
To make those rainbows in my mind
When I think of you sometime
And I want to spend some time with you

Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Building castles in the sky
Just the two of us
You and I

We look for love no time for tears
Wasted water's all that is
And it don't make no flowers grow

Good things might come to those who wait
Not for those who wait too late

I want to be the one with you.

Happy 2017 Google Plus!

The biggest thank you to all of you for supporting and inspiring my photography and and especially for featuring my Texture Blend Collection!

It's brought so many new and amazing souls my way who totally get what goes into my work. And many more who have been inspired to create their own. I am back on track creating from this week for here as well as work now that we have had some time off thanks to the manufacturing companies being closed for the holidays.

Hoping you have all had a relaxing time too. Here's to the best year yet for all of us, with love from BCN...

The biggest thank you to all of you for supporting and inspiring my photography and and especially for featuring my Texture Blend Collection!

It's brought so many new and amazing souls my way who totally get what goes into my work. And many more who have been inspired to create their own. I am back on track creating from this week for here as well as work now that we have had some time off thanks to the manufacturing companies being closed for the holidays.

Hoping you have all had a relaxing time too. Here's to the best year yet for all of us, with love from BCN...

My heart beats in rhythm with the drums of Africa!

'African Daze' exclusive textile design for our business, Louisa Catharine Design, is now on it's way to Southern Africa. Many thanks to those of you who have been such a great inspiration this past year and especially my business partner aka JB. Without him life would definitely be monochrome!

Work has been keeping me extra busy this month as the manufacturing factories were all closing for Christmas, hence my bit of time off photography. I look forward to being on G Plus more often now and getting back into my regular routine creating for here too ;)

Wishing you all very happy holidays!

Never allow anyone to make you feel like the girl in the mirror!

“Someone out there is looking for exactly what you've got…and will never try and undercut your value or question your worth... Some things in life just can’t be bartered over or placed on the sale rack – and your self-worth is at the top of the list...”

Wildflower Memoirs - Texture Blend

“It is easier to tell a person what life is not, rather than to tell them what it is... A child understands weeds that grow from lack of attention, in a garden... However, it is hard to explain the wild flowers that one gardener calls weeds, and another considers beautiful ground cover...”

Early good weekend wishes to you all!

Photograph On His Mantle Texture Blend

All he had left of her was a photograph on his mantle, the day the sea called her back to from whence she came...

This texture blend is a combination of two of my original shots overlayed with grunge textures and added extras telling a story.

Wishing you all a creative weekend, make it a good one!

Brihuega Lavender Fields With The Boys Who Keep Me Smiling

Brihuega, Guadalajara, Spain, is a must see for anyone who loved ancient architecture, long hikes and diverse nature! Texture Blend of an unforgettable long weekend in Northern Spain with my fellow BCN photographers.

I added a vintage touch to my original shot to looked as though it was developed from an old roll of film. Just two texture layers gave it this aged look.

Wishing you all a beautiful Wednesday, I am speaking to one of these awesome nuts right now, their humor is priceless! (And yes, haha I am multi tasking this morning).

Christmas At Home - Dogs Are Family 🐩🐾 🎅

“If you think dogs can’t count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them...” ~ Phil Pastoret

Today's +G+ Worldwide Family Christmas Album post is a little different as it's dedicated to my sweet Troy. This will be my first Christmas in BCN without him. He played a big part in all our Christmases and was part of my family, not just a pet.

Troy loved Christmas food, but especially Italian Panettone and had to have it on one's lap at the table! He would sneeze when there was none left ever so dramatically, asking for more and a little grin would appear! Poignant memories which I hold close to my heart.

~ Khalil Gibran

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

This particular texture blend will become part of our Louisa Catharine Collections for 2017/18 featured on a number of products in a slightly different ''fashion'' to what you see here.

The Age Of Innocence Texture Blend

"Once he drew
With one long kiss my whole soul thro'
My lips, as sunlight drinketh dew..."

~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

Inspired to use textures a little differently this time, ageing my original shot three times over with varying vintage film filters. Followed by the use of two grunge textures and finally processing it to look like one of my art pieces sold online.

Texture blending has no limits, break rules, be creative and follow your artistic streak! Happy Thursday all 🎉💃

Kassiesbaai Fishing Village, Arniston, South Africa

"I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in, twelve-thirty flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company

Part Of Her Would Always Remain In Ancient Egypt

The Double Trouble Series inspired by +George Marquardt ;)

“...as my eyes grew accustomed to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist, strange animals, statues, and gold - everywhere the glint of gold. For the moment - an eternity it must have seemed to the others standing by - I was struck dumb with amazement, and when Lord Carnarvon, unable to stand the suspense any longer, inquired anxiously, 'Can you see anything?' it was all I could do to get out the words, 'Yes, wonderful things...”

~ Howard Carter

#textureblendphotography created using four texture layers, one my original portrait, then adding a second, playing with the placements and finally adding a fiery touch of warmth. #louisacatharinephotography #doubletrouble

My loves aka the gentle giants in my life

Adding to my Africa Collection per request of one of my amazing Google Create friends. So many photos from my last visit to still process...

My second "home" in Africa where these sweet souls have brought me so much joy, they never cease to amaze me. Always eager to see one and share cuddles.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and for those who celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope yours was extra special <3

“But perhaps the most important lesson I learned is that there are no walls between humans and the elephants except those that we put up ourselves, and that until we allow not only elephants, but all living creatures their place in the sun, we can never be whole ourselves.”

~ Lawrence Anthony, The Elephant Whisperer

Looking into your heart I see the world...

Looking into your eyes I see beauty; looking into your soul I see passion; looking into your mind I see intelligence, but looking into your heart I see the world...

When texture blending, you often don't need tons of textures. For this self expression shot, I just used two layers of water shots and processed it to look a little like my film noir series.

Experiment, be creative and break the rules when it comes to photography and art, who knows where it will lead ;)

The Beauty Within Texture Blend

I spent most long school holidays every year with wild animals in Southern Africa from the age of five when I fed my first fully grown male elephant by hand.

Thus being asked to go to BCN zoo this past weekend was not my idea of fun as I tend to avoid zoos whenever possible. However, curiosity got the better of me and I went along, highly recommended if you have children. Though do bring along wet wipes if you plan on sitting down at any time as the pigeons tend to Picasso all!

This is the first of my shots which I texture blended to create a rock like effect reminiscent of bushmen paintings I grew up seeing, but with my own contemporary arty touch. I used a grunge like texture, rock shot and a bevelled texture too.

Wishing you all a creative Wednesday 😘

Sailing Takes Me Away

Well, it's not far down to paradise, at least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

It's not far to never-never land, no reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy of innocence again
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Fantasy, it gets the best of me
When I'm sailing
All caught up in the reverie, every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me?

Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be

Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be

Well it's not far back to sanity, at least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find serenity
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me

Wishing you all a wonderful Monday and thank you to +Petrus van Zyl for the reminder to process my Waterfront shots :) Apologies Petrus, that it's not Quay4 but close to it ;)

Denim Day Afternoon - Texture Blend

"Whenever I have found myself stuck in the ways I relate to things, I return to nature. It is my principal teacher, and I try to open my whole being to what it has to say... "

~ Wynn Bullock

These beauties fascinated me, I shot many photos of them including a video. I chose to texture blend this shot just by adding clouds and a denim like effect to age it slightly.

Happy weekend all!

You Color My World As No One Else Can

Colour is uncontainable... It effortlessly reveals the limits of language and evades our best attempts to impose a rational order on it...

To work with colour is to become acutely aware of the insufficiency of language and theory – which is both disturbing and pleasurable...

~ David Batchelor

Flight Of Freedom Texture Blend

“In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence...”

~ Robert Lynd

I shot this in Brihuega as I watched this little bird take flight, unforgettable moment in the middle of this deserted field! I added two texture blends, one grunge and the second, a slight canvas layer.

Wishing you all a great weekend, make it a good one!

Thinking And Feeling With You - Texture Blend

“We live and breathe words... It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone...

Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt...

I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you... I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted--and then I realized that truly I just wanted you...”

~ Cassandra Clare

I created this texture blend using one of my flower shots and adding three layers. One a vintage style, one ancient love letters script and the third a s light burlap texture.

Wishing you all a great Thursday!

Fading Memories Of Cape Town Waterfront Texture Blend

''The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in the historic heart of Cape Town’s working harbour is South Africa’s most-visited destination...''

Here you can see the Tigresse without my texture blending:

http://www.waterfront.co.za/activities/Sea/tigresse-sailing-catamaran

I texture blended my original shot from 2013 last night to add a vintage touch to this bright daylight capture. Fading memories of my most recent visit to RSA.
