WHEREVER THE WIND BLOWS

"Wherever the Wind Blows" (7-23-09 4124v4d) was just now morphed from another of my oldest pix. As often with a new pic/version, I liked it much more when it first popped on my screen. But I still like the color combo and the contrasting textures. Also, that sense of tumbling motion. What I worry about? That those contrasting textures will be seen as something that should have been changed, i.e. not very good editing work. Ah well, it's my vision and I'm sticking with it (cataracts and all). I even like those tiny pixel squares in the green area, middle left side ... hey, I see 'em as seeds in the wind.

STITCHING TOGETHER A LIFE

"Stitching Together a Life" (6-28-09 2988v4i) was morphed several days ago from the usual old version of an even older pic (in fact, one of my oldest). Nothing much else to say except that I do feel like a piece of messy, crewel stitchery these days. So that may be why I'm drawn to post this one.

MOONSPINNERS

"Moonspinners" (6-28-09 2988v4d) is a very old morph of one of my oldest pix, just now ever so slightly color intensified. Not much else to say except that it's one of several versions of this same pic that I considered for posting. Of course, all would need some minor adjustments, as both my editing skills and "eye" have developed somewhat since they were first worked on. But I liked the color combo most in this one, and the "texture." (Just click on the pic to see the details better.)

SEED FALL

"Seed Fall" (3-25-17 010v3b) was just now morphed from a pic taken this spring of a willow tree. (Pix of which -- both realistic and not -- I've posted here before, the most recent yesterday.) Maybe if I let my life go to seed, something new will grow from some small bit of it? Nah, that'll never happen. I just never seem to be able to fully give up. Slow down, withdraw, lots of stuff like that, but let it all go? Doubt it. Then again, I've never been 73-1/2 and getting more arthritic and depressed daily. Ah well, at least I have that much to look forward to: will I hang in, or give up and coast the rest of the way? Will I ever just let the slow fall happen. BTW, click on this pic if you'd like to see the details more clearly.

TRYING TO BEARD THE SKY

"Trying to Beard the Sky" (3-25-17 009v3) is from this spring. It's of those two favorite old willows I often talk about sitting under on my long walk rest/writing stops. (I just wrote a haiku today sitting there.) As to this pic, I think the wide angle lens effect works in this pic. Gives it a sense of motion, rushing even, toward the sky.

SLOGGIN' ON THROUGH

"Sloggin'On Through" (10-27-15 011v4h) is (as so often) a brand new morph of an older version of an old pic. Actually, there are several old versions beneath today's. I kinda, sorta like the messy look of this one. Reflects my sense of my inner life right now. I'm tempted to say some of the details were surfaced from older versions in the process of editing (they popped up as a bit of a surprise). But I don't know how this electronic stuff works. However, it certainly feels that it might operate that way. I.e., some of the details of older versions aren't so much eliminated by edits as masked so that they sometimes resurface in later versions. Well, that thinking gives you an idea of how this old brain slogs on through ... BTW, this is one of those pix that definitely looks better in a larger version, so just click on it if you'd like to check it out.

HIVING OFF

"Hiving Off" (10-27-15 02v4t) was just morphed from an old version of an even older pic, that I've been fussing at for days. Finally got it to let loose and fly. Or as much as any pix I'm producing these days fly. Yeah, it's that sort of cranky, picky mood today. Eh, what "today"? The mood's taken up residence it seems. But at least it's shot through with gratitude for having pix to fuss at (and poetry to torture into some kind of shape and feet to drag on lovely long walks ... and the occasional fully engaging talk with a friend).

PROVIDENTIAL

"Providential" (10-27-15 028v2) was just finalized today after a few days of bit by tiny bit fussing. Overall, not much was done to it. Mostly minor color adjustments, some painting out of tiny distracting spots, texture work, contrast, and cropping. Well, yeah, that sounds like a lot. I guess what I mean is not a lot was changed all the much from the old edited version I've been working on. Just lots of little things to give it a "face lift," if you will. I just checked the folder and see I don't even have the original pic anymore. Which is highly unusual. So it's quite providential, after all, to wind up with this newer version.

SWIMMING AGAINST THE TIDE

"Swimming Against the Tide" (8-12-15 019v2c) was just morphed from an old version of an older pic. And it's how I'm feeling today. Hell "today," most of my life! And it took many wanderings through other very unsatisfying versions to land here, only to wind up swimming like crazy against the tide.

WATER FAIRY

Yup, "Water Fairy" (10-27-15 022v4h) is yesterday's pic, further morphed. What can I say that I haven't said here before about getting stuck not only in a particular folder of pix, but at a specific pic? It's fun. I both like and dislike, however, the blurry effect here. It goes well with the fairy I see in it, but it's hard on the eyes' need for focus. Well, my old eyes with their cataracts (and lack of proper vision correction ... i.e., I really need new glasses) have a wee bit of trouble when I first view this pic. But at least I can still see fairies! So the world isn't all doom and gloom.

THEY SEE RIGHT THROUGH HER

"They See Right Through Her" (10-27-15 022v4g) was just now morphed (as so often) from an old version of an even older pic. I love staghorn ferns, especially this particular one on our grounds. Haven't been around that direction in a long time ... wonder how it's doing.

NURSING AT THE TEATS OF THE NIGHT

"Nursing at the Teats of the Night" (10-29-09 7924v4b) was just morphed from a very old version of one of my oldest pix. And that's about all I have to say about it, as it's obviously had a ton of editing done on it. Well, also, believe it or not, for such a fussy pic there was a tiny spot I had to do some painting over on because it was distracting. Whenever I say something like that here (or on my poetry blog with reference to a word being problematic or distracting) I think of that fairy tale, The Princess and The Pea. Am I being way too sensitive? Eh! So what! Even if I am, it's my work and I'll nurse away until I feel fully nourished. That's not to say I ever think anything I do is perfect or finished. I just reach a point of satiation.

DIGGER

"Digger" (5-27-17 018v2) was just now morphed from a month old pic. More of those fabulous eucalyptus tree root systems I so love looking at and snapping pix of. Nothing much else to say as I obviously tortured it endlessly. Great fun, especially since my mood is more than questionable. Some of the earlier versions beneath this were even darker and creepier in affect. Hey, better to torture a pic than to act out in some way, ey? :-)

A WAY OPENS

"A Way Opens" (12-9-16 009v3b) was just morphed from a new version of a 7 month old pic. It's one of those coming out of my renewed efforts at archiving and deleting photos to give my computer a rest. As I've said here before, I've set a limit of 12,000 pix -- Argh! -- and still wind up considerably beyond that over time. I started this surge of archiving/deleting at over 13,000. Though it took longer to get there as I've also begun deleting one pic as I go along for every new version I make of an older one. As to this pic, yes, it's of that same busy corner I posted a pic of yesterday. Again, with color inversion applied, producing that radiating light effect of the "path."
