At the Edge of Midnight (8-5-09 5009v5), above, is one of my oldest pix, just fudged with this morning. And like both pix I'm posting here today, it holds (at least to my eye) the promise of life and growth. There's a whole bunch of Photoshop functions in this pic plus some MS Picture Manager adjustments. By the way, both of these pix look better in smaller versions (i.e. as they appear on the blogger screen, rather than clicking on them for a larger view). They were taken with my first camera with a low pixel count.

The Mourning Tree (8-5-9 5006ev2), above, is from the same folder as "At the Edge of Midnight." I used a slew of functions on it and did some color inverting and re-inverting, etc.

I can't say I'm delighted with these pix. However, I will confess a growing attachment to "The Mourning Tree." Maybe simply because I can still see the original tree beneath all the messing around I did. A tree that I am very fond of and miss being able to take the long walk to visit. Which is, by the way, naturally twisty. I did not change any of the shapes in the pic in Photoshop.
