Nerdified Photos

As some of you may know, I am a pretty big nerd when it comes to sci-fi stuff, especially Star Wars stuff. But something you might not have known –because I just started getting into it- is that I like to photo-shop pictures. So with this new found talent and my geekieness (not a word) I came up with these pictures.
      The first picture I found on the web and then changed it a bit, so it would work as my cover for the book I’m writing The Cold Killer.

The hardest part was getting the glow from the lightsabers to reflet the eyes.

When I say a bit, I actually mean a lot, because this is what it looked like before I got it.

Before I got my hands on it. See what I mean by "a lot"?

The next one was a little more involved and I needed some help with it. My sister volunteered to help me out with it (her being the photographer and me being the model). So she and I went up to our backyard hill that looks very wild like. And me using a stick as my lightsaber we took some pictures (some meaning like 50). I’m not going to show you all of them of course, but here are two of them that we took.
What they look like without the photo-shop….

Now here is what it looks like with the changes....

And yes I have redish skin. You should see the one with me having purple hair... Now that's freaky

This next one my sister took after I got dressed up like a pirate. It was in the field behind our house. It was getting dark but we wanted to get this picture before we went back inside.

This is why.....

Making my hair dark was the hardest part, but I think it looks pretty cool. I have always wanted black hair. J

Well that’s it for now. Hope you like my nerdy photo shoot. Till next time…
Yah Bless!! :D

Attack of the Little Furry Monsters

Waking up to a blaring sound.
Blurry eyed I crawl out of bed,
Unaware of what's around.
Not ready to start the day,
But know I have to.
Brush teeth though still asleep.
Try not to fall over while putting on clothes.
Reflection staring at me as I untangle my hair;
Looking as tired as I feel.
Finally it’s time to face the day.

I go outside to embrace the day,
But I am hit with horror instead.
Ready to scream I look at the destruction that as gone on.
Holes dug.
Petals pulled.
Leaves chewed.
What creature caused this mayhem?

Then I see.
Not creature, but creatures are the culprits.
They look up at me daring me to scream.
But I can’t.
I am speechless as I see them rip my flowers.
Their small clawed paws tear at the defenseless leaves.
White teeth ripping without any care to what they've done.
They are my little furry monsters.
