We had storms starting Saturday night and all day Sunday. I lost track but I think we pretty much had it all. Snow, Freezing Rain, Sleet, and Ice, we even had some Thunder and Lightning. Of course this being Oklahoma we were just glad we didn’t have a tornado. The only thing Heather knew to do was get some paint and clean rollers and start painting. She is good at it.
My blog friend East Gwillimbury Camera Girl intrigued me with a “Tiny Planet” photograph of hers. She told me that she uses Photoshop to make hers. I’m lazy and I’m too cheap to buy Photoshop so I found a Tiny Planet App for my generic android phone and I’ve been trying it out. Above is a dawn scene at Orange Beach Alabama. All this snow has me wanting to go get my feet wet in the Gulf of Mexico again. Seriously go check out East Gwillimbury Camera Girl. She is a very good and prolific photographer.
This is my favorite brick wall in downtown Tulsa. All rotated and Tiny Planeted.
And here is the view out my old cubicle window.
And just when you can’t stand any more, I have more. This is sunset on the banks of the Arkansas River. I promise, no more. Today at least.
I found another app for my Ipod Touch. It is called Diana. It is about double exposures with different filters. Its fun to play with but it takes a while to find pleasing results. I like the trail through the city above.
And this is our neighbor’s big willow tree and son Logan. (Not my neighbor’s son you understand.) I like how the willow drapes around his shoulders. I’m not much for the SOOC concept. I don’t think it means much with today’s cameras. I don’t think it ever meant much.
Anyway, paint, snowstorms in March, and new apps are the only changes around here. I’m getting about that age.
The past few months I’ve had some lesions froze off my face and hands. Monday I got a persistent little bugger scraped and burned. Wasn’t that big a deal except a big headache after the local wore off. I have a tiny little bandage. The nurse said if I wanted she wrap my head with layers of gauze to get more sympathy. I told her no thanks, I’m with a tough crowd. So I got the little bandage. A plain one with no cartoon characters. And no sucker. Thanks Obamacare, thanks a lot. You took our suckers away.
So I’m going to upping the defcon level on SPF and wide brimmed hats and long sleeve shirts in direct sun. I’ve worn sun screen 365 days a year for over twenty years and I always wore hats. But they were ball caps. The front of my face, including the world’s biggest solar collector nose is fine. It was the side of my face that the ball cap didn’t cover that was the problem.
Hey so what’s new with you?
