Betsy at Amicalola Falls

Betsy at Amicalola Falls, Georgia. March 9, 2011.

Betsy usually doesn’t like me to take pictures of her.  She doesn’t realize how beautiful her smile truly is.  But I think even Betsy can appreciate the ‘drawing’ of her shown above.  It shows Betsy along the lower part of Amicalola Falls back on March 9.

I’m not an artist, but I did create this ‘work of art’.  Scott, in his wonderful photo blog Finding Another View, had a post about changing a photo into a line drawing using Photoshop.  He said it was easy, and it must be because I got it to work for me.

This is the picture I took of Betsy and which is the basis for the line drawing (don’t tell her I posted the picture as well).  I can’t say I like it any less than the ‘drawing’.  I’m just glad they both show that million-dollar smile.

    You’re becoming artistic, George!! The drawing is very cool and fun, but I like the real Betsy best! It’s nice to compare, though, as well.

    Well done George. Both of them are great joy for eyes. Some years ago I tried also with same kind of experiment, but in black.

    Thank You for this post, it was so lovely.

    George, I know that you have to take a great deal of the responsibility for the great smile on Betsy’s face!

    That line drawing is really, really nice. I have used it a few times playing around but think I must have chosen the wrong picture because I have never liked any as much as I like this.

  17. Tootie Says:

    that is really neat! I’ll have to try that. 🙂 I notice that Betsy always has a smile. 🙂
