Let the noble sentiments of yesterday’s post stand. This morning the grumps have moved in and I do not have my attitude hitched up quite right yet. Plus, I rejoice to say, I have some paying work that needs me.
So if you’re too young to know what I mean when I say I cannot appear in public without my girdle on straight, good for you.
Until matters improve, let this do for now:
I hate PhotoShop.
PhotoShop had absolutely nothing to do with the below photo. Nor did CGI. Nor did any fancy fake tekno glitz nor glitter of any kind have anything whatsoever to do with the below photo.
If you want to know what really makes me holler, here is a particularly egregious example.
By contrast, the below photo is just exactly the way the morning sun landed in my camera’s eye. I just want to be clear on that point.
I hate PhotoShop because when the real deal really does appear – the bells n whistles stand between us, and the miracle that’s showing up right before our eyes.
Reality. Sometimes it really is what it’s cracked up to be.
A great picture!!
A miracle. For which I, in my characteristic fashion of veering wildly between grandiosity and self-loathing, am quite happy to take credit. Thank you for appreciating!
Two very handsome fellas. And the photo was brilliantly taken. (No such thing as luck, right?!)
And I resemble that girdle remark.
With subjects like that, dear typist, one could hardly miss . . . . and if the girdle offends, remove it. Please. I mean.
I don’t know how to use it at all. Someone keeps asking me how I do my drawings – and not listening to the answer – and always mentions PS. Pffft.
Really. And looking at your drawings — who needs it?? You do quite nicely without it, thank you very much.
I hate photo shop, too. It has ruined the feeling of wonder at a fabulous, unique photograph, and replaced it with the nagging little thought, is it really Real? Not in your case, we know you are Really Really Real! But some animal photos, while stunning, just do not seem real or possible to me.
Spiders has said it best – Pffft for Pfffoto Shop!
Hah. Reality. It is what it is. (Deep Thoughts.)
Do you think Bugs is looking at the photo, or at the handsome cat looking back at him?
I think he’s looking at OutTV. I can’t get him to connect with his reflection in the mirror. Though I torment him with trying to, daily. Bwahah.
I am so NOT talented with Photoshop that it never actually entered my mind that the picture could have been doctored! Though in hindsight, I am relieved to hear that it was not… there has to be SOME wonder left in the world.
Oh I so agree. Especially where our furbabies are concerned. Makes me wanna howl, when people “do stuff” to the images. Have you seen a yoga calendar, a particularly egregious example? I may have griped about this before. It never hurts to re-gripe: — No. I can’t believe what I just found. I’m gonna put a link up in the text. Don’t follow it, if you think it might ruin your mood.
Jesus Tonight! Sorry, that’s a good Irish expression. That is just…gross. Not even good PS.
