Week 4: Happiness Is…

Welcome to week three of my Project 52: 2019 Edition. If you’d like to see the prompts that I’m using, read this post.

Anyway, as promised, I’m showing the Straight Out of Camera {SOOC} image too, so you can see what I started with and how it ended.

Nikon D7500 | 35mm

I was sitting in my office on the floor with the light from the window facing me. I forget the exact camera settings and I accidentally deleted the details when I uploaded the photo. And now that you can see my office, you can see what I mean when I say I need to paint it. I’m just not sure what color… If you have ideas, please share.

Straightened, cropped, and converted to black and white in Lightroom

Watermark added in PicMonkey

Happiness is:

  • the warmth of my husband’s arms around my waist when I least expect it
  • a hot cup of coffee on a cold winter’s day
  • the sound of my grandchildren laughing and playing
  • the silly text messages from my kids

What is happiness to you?

If you’re on Instagram, give me a yell and let me know you’re there.

What’s your favorite food?

Happy Snapping,

Daenel T {Living Outside the Stacks}
