Tag: Mardi Gras
On Lundi Gras. The Monday before the big Tuesday. It’s obvious that I’ve become very interested in IA technology. I’ve set my own ground rules. The base art must be my own, as in my photograph. The big complaint is that IA software scrapes the real data from billions of pictures. That’s not true. It…
What You Could See
I think I well photograph a little Mardi Gras. The Universe needs a little inbound positive energy for my friend, Chris. I don’t think I can take and take and take… Besides, looking a this older work makes me happy. That counts for something. Right.
