Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues


Maybe yes, maybe no.

As colorful as possible.

A Facebook and Instagram friend is going to be sure that I’m trolling her with this picture. I’m not. But, she doesn’t know me that well. She lives in California in the hills way up above Malibu. She’s a pretty good photographer so I followed her on Instagram. She followed back. After a bit, she friended me on Facebook. Of course, I friended her back.

She’ll think that I’m trolling her because two days ago she posted a heavily post produced hydrangea on Instagram. And, here I am.

She doesn’t know that after all these years on WordPress, I’ve learned to plan my weeks according to new the pictures I have on hand. The only time I stray is when I have a picture that is calling out to be published, like today’s moon. Or, if the well is dry and I have to go out looking.

My hydrangea image was reworked in a very different way than hers was. I have no idea what she did. I think it’s one app. I started in Snapseed on the phone and finished with big boy/girl software called OnOne.

For those of you who have been around for awhile, you know that I gave up on Adobe products like Photoshop and Lightroom a couple of years ago. I wasn’t a hard decision. I got tired of paying $9.99 a month forever.

OnOne does a lot of production things faster and more efficiently than Adobe ever could do. Besides, Photoshop really should be used by designers and repro houses, which is where I first started using it back in 1992. It wasn’t called Adobe back then.

Anyway.

Stay safe. Stay mighty. Mask up. Keep your distance. Enjoy every bagel and lox sandwich.

    1. Then, you should have one. 🙂 It’s a green, peaceful day today. I’ve been listening to a musician that I had forgotten about. Mary Chapin Carpenter. She does a weekly “songs from my kitchen” show. I realized that she does what James taylor does for me. They bring me a sense of peace. Today, I started working through her back catalog. I should have been listening to her from March 15, when our lock down began. Musical miss is getting nervous. Kidding.
