Here are two more of my “painterly” edits of photos. I wish I could paint this well. I believe the first is a detail, with some editing, cropping and deletions, of a night shot of the sky with an overhanging roofline. The second is an edited detail of a blue heron in flight taken at Sea Ranch, California. Only the “Photos” editing software that came with my Mac was used.
Definitely an off-day, both in choices of costume and mood. I’ve recently been going through old photographs. This one was undoubtedly taken by my 11-year-older sister Betty Jo. I’ve been trying to remember what may have prompted my mood. Maybe I detected that she was not overwhelmed by what my mother would have called my “funny little outfit.” My sister Patti and I heard this term countless times over the years, usually when we thought we looked just fine.
This photo was checked with creases and cracks, and although I tried to deal them, I finally had to resort to cropping or it would have taken me all day with the means I had at hand. At any rate, here it is–an early odd ball side of myself.
