Not a bad way to spend the end of the day.

I have a couple of old cameras on a bookshelf in the living room. I have two Polaroid Land Cameras, another Polaroid, a Brownie, an old Canon 35mm and a Panasonic point and shoot, my first camera besides the one I made out if an oatmeal canister in elementary school.
I bought a couple of them with the intentions of using them but have never gotten around to it, digital is so easy.
Originally I wanted to try to put some orthofilm in the land cams and brownie and try to make an exposure that way... I still might try one day. But know you can buy film for the Polaroids again.
It is food to have dreams and ambitions it what you could call a Pipedream.
Mornings are better than ever now. Every morning I get up with my son and have a few hours with him before I have to start my work day.
He gets to roll and now crawl around on the floor and play and I get to enjoy my morning cup of coffee and roll around on the floor with my son.

I found a tutorial on painterly effects in Photoshop in where you duplicate the image change its blend mode, I used soft light, and apply a motion blur at 90 degrees and crank the distance way up to the three or four hundreds. Then you repeat this two more times. On one you change the angle to -45 degrees and the other to 45 degrees play around with the distance for both. If you turn the first duplicate layer to a smart object and then duplicate that in makes it a little faster.

It is always a battle between my wife and myself when it comes to Black & White vs Color... well that is a little over the top. She generally likes color and I want to feel artsy so I go with black and white.
I thought the dark brick and white mortar would be a good candidate for black & white but it might just all run together.

IPA Freely is a new blog about beer and things related by my friend Beth. While I have never witnessed this peeing freely business I have drank more than a few beers and discussed beer with her many times. She is very knowledgeable and seems always to be learning more about it.
She is also part of the Hardywood Community Hopping Project and you can follow her progress growing hops for a local brewery.
Have a beer and click on over and check it out. Sláinte!
