With the all seeing dog on the mend I hit a wall. I wasn’t making new pictures. I did the next best thing. I worked on older pictures, experimenting every step of the way.
The good news is that the dog in question is feeling better. She took me for a walk this morning. I put the brakes on about half way through a normal routine because I didn’t want to tire her out.
I did make some new pictures. You’ll see one tomorrow since I was already was working on this one.
Of course, even getting this picture here took an act of God. It started when a client forced me to use some alternate way of uploading PDFs.
It took me the better part of two days to fix all the issues including working in the safe mode to clean out the bad data.
This guy still wants to be a client. That’s fine. My basic billing rate is triple what I normally charge. Shut me down for two days and his accounting department is going to have questions.
Finally, a picture that can take some technical talk.
I built this one sort of backwards. Normally, my pictures are full of color.
This time after layering the images and getting them approximately where I wanted them, I worked backwards.
I removed color. I removed contrast. I almost came close to just leaving the dots in the file. Them I built the image up a little and that’s what you are looking at.
It’s a picture for late spring as we near summer. The brightest colors are fading. Others are starting to appear.
The mystery of life.
