Good morning, kittens and dawgs! This is another WW and #BoTB double feature post. Last week, I asked y’all to cast your vote in the Santana Battles Toto covering While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
This was a very tight showdown. The tightest battle I’ve had in a long time. In the beginning, I thought I knew which artist would get my vote. I flipped back and forth between these covers both stirring me differently. I gave both songs one more listen yesterday and I decided Toto’s vocals were a closer match to the Beatles’ original touching on my emotions the same and earning my vote. The winner is….
The finally tally, Santana 9; Toto 8!
Thanks for y’all votes. It truly adds to the fun of each showdown. Please join me on the March 1st for another battle! 😉
Ok, moving along to my regularly scheduled post. Last year about this time, we spent the day in the Great Smoky Mountains in the Upper Tremont area. By the time we stopped beside the Middle Prong Little River, the sun was slipping farther west creating shadows in the already heavily shaded area I stood to the picture.
It was a gorgeous February day spent in the mountains as you can tell how the sunlight hits the water, especially in the first photo. I did a little photo play with my image. First I converted it to B&W format which is nice and I thought I’d love to draw this but I’m not that talented yet. *hee-hee*
So, in Pixelmator, I applied the sketch effect. Now, if only I could doodle as good as this photo-art creation!

I’m gonna leave you with another this song selection by India Arie and invite you to come back for another peek through my lens with my newest edition of Skywatch Friday & CTST!
Have a fototastic day!
