Textures are HOT right now. Whether you use them on photos taken of families or seniors, landscapes, wildlife, pets, or just add them to your own personal photos…they create some amazing effects.

My husband and I, and both of my parents went on the Hendry County Farm Tour this past weekend. There were a total of three FULL tour busses in our group..I was surprised at how many people took the tour!
