Ahh, Mercury retrograde. I can always feel it immediately. Things just don’t seem to move forward easily at all, starting new projects is a complete nightmare, things break (especially electronics). In fact, as I started to write this post, I discovered that our refrigerator stopped working…bye, bye brand new block of Beecher’s cheese that I just bought. Go figure!
Anyway, I have decided I’m going to spend this month working on developing those tips and tutorials I talked about sharing, so I can take some time to refine the content and present them in the best way possible. March is looking like it’s going to be a wild ride…so taking one thing at a time seems like a smart move.
This is a photo I took of a glass; it came out looking really abstract and cool to begin with, and I went to town editing until it ended up looking like what you see above. I have been really into arty photography lately, especially still life and more conceptual pieces like this. I find it very soothing (and fun!) to take a seemingly ordinary photo through a series of manipulations…always yields interesting results.
