Picture A Day Challenge for 12/20/07

I took a picture of a Christmas gift I plan to give my father which I made last night. But as I was driving to work this morning, I watched the most beautiful dawn. Since we started this challenge, I have become more acutely aware of light and shadows. I'm not just seeing objects, but the light on them. So, because the dawn held long enough for me to park my truck at work, here is today's picture of the day, the Tower of the Americas at dawn.

I had planned to make a heritage album with the stacks of photos I got from my parents' house at Thanksgiving as a Christmas gift for my father, but I started way too late. When I was at Hobby Lobby the other evening, I picked up a clock movement at the impulse rack by the register because I had been wanting to make a clock for sometime. It sat in my scraproom for two days until I had the brilliant idea to make the CD clock with pictures I've scanned for Daddy's album. I used some of the ink techniques I learned from Tim Holtz' blog this month to distress the black and white prints I made and decorated an AOL throwaway CD I've had for a long time.
I hope he likes it.
