Stella, my daughter in law, is doing a course in nails and pedicure. I am a model to practice on. She did an excellent job with my nails.
These are my own nails. I think they look very cool for a beginner! What do you think?

Last night was an awesome night. My friend and I sat in the front row of the theatre where Kaffe Fassett explained how and why he started his knitting and patchwork designs and patterns.
He wore the same shirt as in the video clip.
It was a wonderful experience to hear him speak and look at the examples of his designs.

Today, pay attention to how color affects your images. Experiment with one color, and think about how to feature it prominently.
Today’s Tip: As you train your eye to look for color, keep it simple:
Choose one bold color against a neutral background, instead of several colors competing for attention in a scene.
Look for a strong color within a basic composition of uncomplicated lines — your pop of color will stand out more.
Continue to experiment with light and POV as you shoot color-as-subject — the color may transform as you move.
Don’t ignore soft, pastel shades — colors like mint and pink can make statements, too.
Juxtapose pastels with black and darker shades.
