You know those warnings about not wearing loose clothing near machinery? It’s true. It’s also a true statement that you should not dance near machinery. Annabel found out the hard way. Believe it or not, she was Lindy Hopping on … Continue reading Unfortunate Accident
This evening I did the unthinkable. I played with filters in Photoshop. I am a purist – I photograph to capture what I see without extreme manipulation – and I consider that artful enough. But today, I decided to explore … Continue reading Filters
