Before posting my pic for today (below) I should say that it's my last posting for a while. I'm taking a spring break from blogging. Oh, I'll keep writing my dream poems and working on pix, for sure. And reading and answering comments and emails about my blogs or otherwise. I just want to free up some time for other things that are pressing right now. Don't know how long I'll be on a blogging break. Depends on how everything goes. Now to the post:
"Seeding the Night" (5-9-12 11935v10) seems like an appropriately titled pic for my last post for a little while. Maybe it will seed some good ideas and, better yet, lots of fruitful activity during my spring break. It's clearly been heavily fudged with in Photoshop, even beginning to go really wonky. But working with a blur filter rescued it, ultimately making those swirly streaks into interesting vapor-like trails. This pic, BTW, illustrates what I most enjoy about the effect of the "surface blur" filter. Sometimes fine tuning of the filter's effect adds a sense of depth to a pic.
