So, I’ll start with the broken reflected self-portrait.
And that’s exacty how I feel for the last few days. My head is killing me. I feel like I’m made from glass, broken and there is only a cardboard on the back of it keeping it all stick together. Sometimes I feel like I’m getting paralyzed by those headaches… From the top of my head to the tips of my fingers… It’s an aweful feeling!
… but despite my headache I’m really happy to see a photo challenge calling for “reflections” 🙂 LOVE LOVE LOVE pictures of reflections!
… and finally I’ve started to use more options while editing pictures. Before I’d had my routine: changing brightness, contrast, color balance, adding some softglow, sharpens, working on layers from now and then…
A few weeks ago I’ve dicovered the world of textures… Two days ago… I started to use the “CURVES” option more often 🙂 Actually it’s pretty cool and very helpful if you want to make LOMO or VINTAGE-like pictures… I downloaded an action (in GIMP it’s called a script) that can do it with one click… but while using the “curves” option I feel like I have more control, and I see the progress of this effect step by step.
For a Macro Friday I took some yummy pictures of our strawberry/ies.
One is ready to be picked (the strawberry, not the picture :-P), but we don’t know who should do it… I say, it’s my husband’s plant so he should do it. He says that I should do it… Today I know why he wants me to do it instead of him. He doesn’t know HOW TO PICK A STRAWBERRY. ROFL
Could you imagine! That’s so funny! That’s why he doesn’t want to do that! I mean not because it’s funny but because he doesn’t know how! 😉
So here it is! So called California’s Giant Strawberry! Does it look like a GIANT strawberry !?! I bet it taste like GIANT strawberry would taste… 😉
We’ve got two more… still green… but looking very promising… not gigantic though 😛
I remember when I was a kid I used to eat those green strawberries. Not quite riped but not totally green and hard… Those are the best! Sooo tasty!!! I’m weird… I know!
