Feeling Alright

No fools, no fun.

That’s what they say. At least some of “they” say it.

No virus news today. We all need a break from it, even though it may affect our lives for many years.



And, this photograph turned into I don’t know what.

First, the picture. I started with a picture of a bush. Yes, a bush. That’s what you are looking at. I made the picture in low morning light. I did my usual devlopment and some minor post production.

But, me being me, I couldn’t leave well enough alone.

I did some major post production, so much so, that when I tried to finish it in OnOne, I couldn’t. Apparently, I made the first image that was so far gone that nothing could modify it.

So, I headed south and took the color out of it. Then i replaced a little color. Those little bits of color are from the OnOne bokah filter. I added these after I created the border. I wanted the image to look like a printer’s proof.

I’m still not sure about this image.

That’s thing about art. From the creators perspective there is always some doubt. From the viewers side you can see the image the way that makes sense to you. Often, a good art work should make you feel a little uncomfortable. I’m not saying this is a good piece if art. It may be a good piece of something else.

Stay safe. Enjoy every sandwich.
