Photo Art Friday

This week Bonnie's challenge prompt was the word 'Hardware'.
The dictionary describes hardware as:
~ Articles of iron or other metals, as pots,
kettles, saws, knives, etc. ~
My articles of hardware are my wedding rings,
and they have seen a lot of hard ware wear, 
one will be 34 years old this year.


Recipe:
water colour filter in Photoshop
poster edge filter in Photoshop
pdpa texture 'Starburst'
pdpa texture 'Old Ornate Linen'

Joining Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art for


Thank you for stopping by and
enjoy the weekend!

Lovely art work - and lovely rings. This looks like you should frame it and hang it on the wall. It is very special.

Lovely rings and what a great way to commemorate hard wear! Congratulations!

Amazing on so many levels: the interpretation of the theme; the composition, the editing choices; the use of textures; the placement of the rays of light; !!! Bravo!

They're still lovely after all of these years!
I never would have thought of photographing my 'hardware'.

It is such a pretty piece of ART... It would be such a great idea to print it big and have it hanging on the wall - Great work!!
Kind regards

I love how each person has interpreted another aspect of "hardware" and how each one opens my mind a little wider and lets more light in.

This is BEautiful and so gorgeous the way you have "fiddled" with it.

Extraordinary!!

Lona said...

Oh how lovely Jen! The star-burst effect is just the right texture for your rings. I always love looking at what you do with your pictures. Have a lovely weekend

Congrats on your 30 plus years. Your photo gives those years a wonderful patina. Don't you just love Bonnie's prompts?

Jan said...

I had never considered my wedding rings of 43 yrs to be hardware, but this is why I love art challenges! You get to see what other peoples 'take' on a word prompt is. This is great! Lovely filters to make the images so soft and serene!
Congrats on 36 yrs.....and counting.
