I’m still knitting-impaired (whine, whine, whine), knitting is slow and limited, so no news on the knitting front.
But last weekend, after taking a few fall pictures, I was having fun with my (freeware) photo editing program and thought you might enjoy seeing some of the results. Warning: obviously extremely picture-heavy!
Here’s some leaves from my little Japanese maple:
Unadulterated other than cropping to square.
Now let’s skew our perspective a bit:
Effect named “Explosion”:
Looks more like looking through frosted glass than an explosion, but interesting.
Just makes the maple look like some exotic cultivar.
Not as evident in this photo as it might be with another subject.
Fragmented (don’t adjust your glasses or your brain, it’s not you):
(Look at those leaves go!)
Snow (by the way, yes, it certainly can snow here at the beginning of October):
Polar coordinates (I like this one; it looks as though the leaf has fallen into a quiet whirlpool):
And two more of my favorites, “twirl” and “swirl”.
Or is it “swirl”and “twirl”?
Tomorrow, the second half of the series, playing with color and line. Fair warning!
