The Sunday Creative - Nostalgia

Maegan couldn't have picked a more perfect prompt for me this week.  This is my last full week in Kentucky and as I wrap up the project I've been working on, pack and close up my apartment I've been filled with nostalgia.  I've loved living here this year.  I've met some incredible people and been charmed by the beauty of the surrounding area.

I'm posting two of my favorite photos of the Kentucky Horse Park after I've spent some time editing them.  I'm loving the use of actions and textures, it gives me the ability to take my photos in fun new directions and makes me feel even more like an artist.  (For those of you who care, I used Pioneer Woman's Heartland Action and Kim Klassen's Extreme Grunge texture.)

One of my favorite artists from Kentucky - Dawn Landes (thanks Cindy for the introduction to her music.)
