Picnick (See Jane Edit)

token tourist pic
 Just a little fun with Picnick, which I recently discovered via my normal editing program, Picasa.  And there went a good two hours of my life.

Isn't it funny how obsessed we are with retro-looking photos now that technology had given us the ability to take the clearest pictures ever?  Nostalgia is a funny thing.

I use the Facebook version of Picknick all the time -- easily one of my favorite ways to procrastinate. I love that first photo; it's absolutely stunning! And your nephews are TOO cute.

These are wonderful - it's so cool how much your family members resemble one another. For years I asked my parents if I was adopted b/c I didn't look like anyone. True story.

And hel-lo Eiffel Tower!

I love picnik too! I use Picasa mostly, but should probably use picnik a bit more! Adorable pics! :)

Taylor said...

So fun!!! And I totally agree, why do we do this??

Do you make your collages in Picasa too? Meant to ask you that...I don't have photo shop and can't do it in Lightroom...but would much rather find a better way that sep images!

PS- We should get together again...maybe soon?
