Photograph: "The Haunters"


I'm not sure why I posted this picture today. Mostly I've been moving my computer, camera stuff and matte-cutting framing stuff to one large room from two messy rooms while waiting for the dishwasher repairman to come. Dishwasher is fixed, furniture is moved, and I found this picture I took two years ago...(well it is a combination of a couple of pictures I took two years ago)...and hung it on my wall. Then thought. Stick it on blogspot since it doesn't look like I'm going to write a blog about moving my stuff around and waiting for the dishwasher repairman, although I guess I just did that too. Multi-tasking and don't even know it!

  1. I like it!!! You said a "combination of a couple of pictures"... how does that work? I don't know how to do that.

  2. I can see I need to do a lot of reading on your blog to get up to speed.

    Thanks for stopping by mine, I hope I'm at least entertaining the devilish side of you! :)

  3. Thanks, Julie for looking...I agree it is a bit weird...the devilish side of me entertains me as well, the Butler side keeps me from getting in too much trouble.

    Lizzy, I've been using Photoshop but it has a long learning curve and is expensive. There are many cheaper (some free) digital picture editing programs...lots of fun but needs patience.

  5. You thought right on. Sticking it on the the blog was exactly the right thing to do. What were the images that were combined? Was one the birds and the other the branches? Interesting...

  6. Thanks for the kudos. The two pictures were were not individually too interesting. One was of the buzzards in a thicket of trees. It was in color, kind of dull bluish gray black and the sky was gray overcast. The second picture was of a sunset sky. I converted the birds to a black and white and upped the contrast, then cut out all the spaces between the branches and pasted it over the sunset. Actually it is three pictures because the tiny flying bird in the upper right was a third picture I just cut, reduced, and stuck in there. Photographic reality seems to be a thing of the past.
