11/20/09 - Sucked In!
Ever want to dig your feet into the ground and refuse to go someplace or do something? But, the pull is so strong. Ever feel like you just can't escape the tedius chores in life like the perpetual laundry and dishes. You want to stop but they keep getting generated...need attention. Have that I need a vacation feeling but everyday work and life keeping you grounded? All these forces at work in life pulling you this way and that way. Which way to go? Do you have a choice?
I took this shot last Sunday and have been playing in PSE on it every day since. Thanks to Chuck Beehner for the tip of using radial blur on an image that already has the twirl filter applied. Love this vortex result pulling us into the door on the side of the barn. Will you go out the window on the other side or stay in the barn? Can you keep from going in? You decide.
No twirl but still quite tweaked version is here:
The original is the thumbnail to the right. The window out the other side and the contrast of red/yellow leaves on the green barn walls is what originally attracted me to the picture.
Thank you all for the comments on my windscape (new to me term that I really like) shot! Pictures are just no fun if you don't have someone to share them with. You guys are the best!
Hey, it's Friday!!!
We'll be getting our anual Santa Paws picture done at the SPCA tonight with our dog Blaze and Santa. It's tradition:-)
