New Orleans Spooky


Ghosts, pirates and gang members.

T

his whole post might just be a rant. I know what you are thinking. “Oh no” I’ll try to be funny even though I’m not feeling that way.

You know I don’t have much time these days. Time is my most precious commodity. Not just now, even in the best of times. But, especially right now.

I started working on this picture by finishing the it on On1. It fought me every step of the way. It shut down. Then colors wouldn’t stay accurate to what I was trying to use. Finally, The color and type size of that little piece of type on the bottom right. It would not remain at my settings. The color actually reverted back to the one I used two pictures earlier. The type size moved up and back no matter how I set it.

Those were just my problems with editing software.

Then I opened WordPress. Arrggghhh.

It wouldn’t open. It wouldn’t open to the new post setting. I rebooted WordPress. That seemed to help.

And, here I am, almost two hours later.

Now comes a comment from a friend who says he hasn’t been seeing my Storyteller posts on Facebook, and did I shut off Facebook? Short answer, no, I didn’t. I have no idea what happened since the link looks like it works.

How’s your day been?

New Orleans can be just downright spooky even at the best of times. This is an archive picture that I re-discovered for my Picfair project. I accidentally darkened it a little too much and thought, “Wow.” So I decided to work on it a little more. And, I eventually came up with the picture that you are looking at.

Spooky, huh?

One thought on “New Orleans Spooky

  1. “Spooky” is very good.  “Like”

    If you scroll down, there’s a place that says “Leave a reply.” Trying to
    use that is where I got into trouble.  Am I supposed to sign in to
    Facebook or Instagram there to leave a reply?  No clear instructions for
    us dummies.

    But until problems started on Facebook recently (no sign of
    Storyteller), I never bothered with what’s below on WP.  Anyhow, I’ll
    keep life simple.  Reply using email as you suggest.
