Blah blah blah
Today came with a new funk. Actually I don’t know if this is the same funk, or revenge of the funk, or funk II: electric boogaloo. Whatever it may be, on these days, I always find something else to occupy myself. Get away from the norm. Avoid responsibilities. Don’t answer the phone. My family room is a mess and I have two piles of laundry on the couch next to me. Oh, and the chunks are playing video games. I’ll be mother of year tomorrow.
So, for the last few hours I was having fun looking at pictures. I then occupied myself with the development and such. I have to admit, I didn’t like digital photography back in the day (even as soon as 4 years ago). Why? For one, you could totally tell when it was digital. I was just picky like that. Even now, I can tell when it’s a digital shot but I have to take a really good look at the picture. For two, I had once learned the rare art of darkroom development. So, that alone made me a bit snooty, and a kind of purist. When I used to shoot a lot, my favorite part of the whole process was the darkroom. To this day I still want a darkroom in my house. But now, as digital is totally the norm, I know that the darkroom days will just become some sort of rare art form, like bookmaking.
But these days I just love the digital. I also love all the ways I can play with an image on the computer. I am still just learning the computer stuff. This is my hubby’s specialty, but today I had some fun. Here are just a few:
