What really makes the world go ’round?

My husband and I love to travel. Instead of taking a trip last year, we bought a house. So, this year, I am determined to go somewhere! I have been in 26 countries but only 14 states. Funny, isn’t it?

My parents got us this globe for Christmas. This photo is actually composed of two images. I overlaid the image of the globe still with one of it spinning, then played with the opacity of the layers. I wanted to be able to see the motion of it, yet make out the shape of the continents. This is my favorite photo I have posted on my PaD so far.

*sigh* My passport has not had a stamp in it for over a year. It makes me resless. If anyone is interested, our travel website is It hasn’t been updated in aboout a year and a half though.Posted by Picasa

  5. I love this! What a creative way to shoot a globe. (At least for me, I haven’t seen it before).

    Dang.. I need to get more creative with my PaDs.. lol

  6. very cool – I like the way you overlayed one photo over the other to keep the continents visible. I’m not that talented with PS yet.

  7. Excellent photo, really well done motion blur! :)
