In whom all the building fitly framed together whom ye also are builded together for an
habitation of God through the spirit...Ephesians 2: 21-22

Susan, suggested that I crop the previous picture to make it look like I really was a painting in a frame which is what I did. I also decided to brighten the picture of myself. Susan is a bright spot in so many of our lives and we love her and her sense of humor that she presents so well on her site.....Thank you for the neat suggestion, was a good one.

To make it look like both sides were even on the frame I cut off the left side of the frame and flipped it horizontally to add to the right side...and also did the same for the top of the frame to place on the bottom edge and then pieced it together...It is the first time I did that and it is a little more difficult than it looks but it was fun to see what I could do.

Some of you might be wondering why my eyes looked a little teary...I wanted so badly to blink but with the slow shutter speed that I used in this experiment I forced them to stay open...It reminds me on a smaller scale of the slow shutter speeds that were used when cameras first were invented and the subjects always had a serious look on their face:) I think I might have been also worried that with how long it was taking that my camera had quit working on me...

Thank you for the comments on my previous effort for the challenge but decided I like this one better for "against the wall". I will keep the other photo posted to show the before and the after results...

Thank you so much Susan for the Spotlight on this photo...Very appreciated!!!
