GLOBAL WARMING and more


GLOBAL WARMING

"Global Warming" (Archival PICT 1729v5[2]) was just morphed from a very old pic of mine. I didn't do a whole lot (flipped it vertically and warmed up the colors a bit) but those little changes made quite a difference. And that (to my understanding) could have been said about global warming, too, when we humans first began taking note of it.

LOST IN THE ABSTRACTION

"Lost in the Abstraction" (10-24-18 005v2) was just ever so slightly fussed with in MS Photos. The original and the version I worked with here, are about 10 months old (babies compared to the vast majority of my pix :-D). That title may be a little pompous and also a bit off the mark, but I like it. So there!

SUMMER'S LAST HURRAH

"Summer's Last Hurrah" (11-20-18 002[2]) was just morphed from a previous version of a 9-month old pic of mine. Not much else I can say about it. I do kind, sorta like it. But I keep itching to get at it (and just about any photo I've worked on since getting my new computer) with that version of Photoshop I have on my old 'puter. But given the givens of the editing program I do have available, this isn't an awful pic. Just not one I'd write home to mom about. :-)

On a different, if related subject, I've noted an increasing resistance to taking any new pix. Up til now I've pretty much credited that to not have an editing program I'm happy with. However, I think there's more going on. My shift seems to be more and more towards morphing whatever pix I already have (thousands of them). Torturing them into being non-representational, or very close to it. And there may be a connection between that and all the spectacular, very good realistic photos I keep seeing online that are making any of mine look more and more amateurish to me by comparison. Not that I was ever professional, but I had a certain amount of ego denial going on that allowed me to like some [sic: a very few] of my realistic pix. When it comes to non-representational pix, well, maybe I'm fooling myself there also. But I tend to think that overall they're better art than my realistic ones. Uh, well, maybe my newer ones tend to be better. In any case, I enjoy messing with my pix and turning them every which way but up, and morphing the behoositz outta them. Gives this old (and rapidly getting older) lady something to do with her still curious and active mind. Other than record her night dreams and write poems about them, something I still do. (You can Google for "Roswila's Dream & Poetry Realm" to see some of those night dream and other sorts of poems of mine.)

NATURE'S CROCHET

"Nature's Crochet" (7-30-09 4671v4[3]) was just fudged out of an old version of one of my oldest pix. It's another example of the "meh" work I'm producing these days. I'd like to think, mostly due to the lack of an editing program I can learn without feeling like I'm way down the road to dementia. And that's only partly a joke. In any case, I see a tree in this "abstract" and wanted to somehow include "tree" in the title. But could not find a way to do so without producing a name for this fussy pic that's more like a poem all by itself. Yeah, there's no pleasing me today. LOL...and so I think maybe with good reason. Not everything (or even a rare thing) can be a masterpiece. (BTW, this is one of those pix best viewed in a larger version, so just click on the image if you'd like to see the details of the "crochet.")

OUT OF THE CHASM

"Out of the Chasm" (Screenshots-many 2-10-19[20]) was just fudged today out of an already massively fudged with old photo of mine. No surprise, then, that I see some sort of burning creature or disaster, surfacing within its busy shapes and colors. :-) Not all that happy with this pic, but can't do much better by it given all I have is Windows10's very limited Photos program. (I'd do much more with it's focus/clarity.) I continue to miss Photoshop V.11 terribly. And still haven't had (and may never have) the energy and focus to teach myself that really old version of PS I do have, or to struggle with endlessly dense GIMP. Even SUMOPAINT, which I'd begun to develop a working relationship with a couple of years ago, is beyond me now. Sometimes getting really old sucks the big one. Most of what little energy I have these days goes to trying to clean out (and clean up) my rooms. And my inner life ... that chasm of self has gotten awfully crowded with junk and unwelcome stuff over the 11 years I've been here in CA.
