This time our creative prompt is more of a specific challenge – to use a lightpad to create an interesting backlit photo. You may be thinking, “I don’t have a lightpad” but you likely do.

The more of these letters I send, the more I feel they are benefiting me as much as anyone else. 💛 💜 Dear Friend, The world outside is reopening but I am still staying at home. One of my big courgette plants was broken off at the stem this week. Normally this would be sad […]
