Lettuce

Green leaf lettuce is a staple for my meals. No matter what other vegetable, fruit or protein I use, green leaf lettuce is the first layer of every salad bowl. As I learn to shop online for groceries I am also learning to trust someone else to pick out my produce. Today someone else selected my tomatoes. They looked good. Next time, I’m going to ask the store to select my lettuce.

Use Part of a Template
  • Open template 1 from Hipster Plume Template Album No. 5.
  • Place just the frames, splatter, stain, text boxes and plumes.
  • Clip photos to masks.
  • Clip a photo to stains
Mask Screen Shots
  • Place copies of internet screenshots. Mask portions as needed.
  • Place lettuce screenshots in position below the small frames.
  • Add custom shadows as desired.
  • Adjust the position of template layers.
  • Stamp brush 10 from Fare No. 1 to the left on a new blank layer below the frames.
  • Add a splatter from another hipster template on the right.
  • Place just the alphabet beads from Food WordART No. 1 on the thread included in the template.

Learning to shop on line is fun, but challenging too. I didn’t realize until today that there is a box under each item in your cart to make a comment. So many little details to learn about these shopping apps. After the pandemic ends, I may never want to go back to the market.

Shopping and Eating

Today, Glenda and I went shopping. One place we stopped was Samy’s Camera because Glenda wants a small, uncomplicated camera that blurs the background. We found a couple of options. She made notes on her iPhone so she can do more research before actually buying.

After more shopping, we stopped at Tender Greens for lunch.

We had what they labeled a Harvest Salad with citrus and chicken on a lovely bed of real greens; no iceberg lettuce on this salad.

Today’s little treat was from See’s Candies, a store we don’t have in Nebraska. I used my macro lens for this photo. I don’t want to forget how healthy dark chocolate and almonds are for me.

I actually worked with the raw files for this post. I haven’t photographed in raw for quite a while as they generally always have to be processed. It was much quicker than I anticipated. I learned a nifty trick about Lightroom in which you shift click the whites and blacks in the develop module. It worked very well on these photos.

We’re flying up to San Francisco tomorrow to have lunch with my friend, Adryane.
