In the garden.


This picture is less than two hours old. At least it is from Noon, Central Daylight Time. The time in New Orleans.

Yes. I know what I say about letting a picture marinate. That’s my theory. It’s not a rule. Even if it was, rules are meant to be broken. If you have an idea of what you are doing. Disruption for its own sake is wasteful and harmful. Just look at the current state of The United States government. As I’ve said, this is not a political blog. But, my country is leaderless unless you count bombastic tweets and threats, which aren’t law or legislation.

That’s not the point of the picture.

I walked outside. A dog joined me. We stumbled upon this scene. She stopped and let me take the picture. I knew what I had. I actually have two versions. This one. And, another in which the picture is just clouds and bubbling water. More minimalistic. I’ll show you that tomorrow. There is no better and best this time. It’s a toss-up.

Oddly, now that I’m back, I have a couple of brand new pictures waiting to go. I guess I’m ready. My eyes are working just fine. And, the pictures are just sort of popping up on the scene. That’s when you know they are getting good. It’s the picture. Not the photographer.

This picture. I already told you about most of it. I just tuned things up in post production. For those of you who are wondering, I used Snapseed, OnOne followed by Affinity. Affinity is sort of a Photoshop clone that does everything I want it to do. It’s inexpensive and the updates are free. No more monthly charges, or expensive updates. There is a learning curve, mostly because the terminology is different from Photoshop.
