Team Up Thursday

This weeks theme chosen by Cat, is Books.  She chose this theme by picking up on an element from last week's photo's - we both used the Bible, therefore it was Books.


Shayne and I decided to derive our theme for the next week from the other person's picture of the previous week. So from Shayne's picture of last week, I chose "Books" as a theme. We are a family of readers - we literally drown in books and we all love it. This is a picture of our much use (or abused) board books, possibly in their final year in our home. As the Boys are moving towards 3 they are more and more careful with books and interested in other types.

When Cat told me the theme for this week I immediately had a picture in my head (you know those!) and I just have to say that I love how this turned out.  Remember the Reader's Digest Condensed Books - well we have a ton of them and i thought they would be perfect for this picture. And it worked well - i think.  The age of the books is apparent from the colour of the pages and it just blends so well with the colour of the piano and the blue of the spines.  

Just to tell you all - Cat and I have made a decision to use 'un-altered' photos for our TUT.  It is so easy to manipulate a photo to the way you would like them to look, but not always so easy to take that pic. 


Please pop over to the other participants in Team Up Thursday to see their pics!
