"Last Minute Crush" (6-28-09 2985v4b) is (as yesterday's was) from one of my oldest pix, just now morphed. I had a devil of a time getting anything today that felt at all post-worthy. Mostly because these old pix are hard to fudge much with as they were taken with such a low pixel count camera, and cropped, to boot. So they go wonky all too readily. I either then use a blur filter (which changes the pic a lot, and isn't always a solution), or give up and move on. Either way, the pic I'd begun to like doesn't happen. Why work at all with these old pix? Because something about them still calls to me whenever I have reason to look in an old folder. And once in a while it's worth the effort. (BTW, I can't always even go back to the unedited original versions of these old pix and start over. Somewhere in the first year I took pix, I began deleting the originals, thinking that was that, once I had an edited version of a photo. I caught on soon enough, and still find myself surprised when I can't find the original in an old folder as this was, thankfully, not something I did a whole lot for very long.)
