Stick together… part 34… monkeying around… part 2…

It is the humanity in their faces, their eyes, that make this even better for me.

a 1 copy 3

Which leaves me wondering…

a 1 copy 4

If perhaps I should do some more of these… of famous humans through history.

a 1

The thing is… (hello, thing, where have you been hiding?)… that faces, monkey or human, are so symmetrical.

a 2 copy 3

This works best on a photo of a head that is tilted, or turned to the side a little.

a 2 copy

If that monkey wasn’t tilting his head, a mirror image would just look like a particularly symmetrical monkey face.

a 2

That is what I learned… the hard way.

Oh yeah…

a 1

My younger daughter, Mollie, got me a custom father’s day coffefe mug… which is appropriate, seeing that I am an actual Scottish Lord, thanks to my other daughter, Jessica. But I told that story already, so you should already know that, right?

Multi-media-tasking… part 1…

a 1

Okay, follow along with me on this multimedia journey. That right there is what happened when I took this image…

a 2

And put it through a digital filter called: ’emboss’. The image is of this…

z 70

Yes, it is the very first project I made in my glass blowing class, a paperweight. Except the photo above that one was taken with a macro lens for super close up photography, and it was taken in a dark room with the paperweight on a stand that has little LED lights in it that change color. That is already a few types of media, am I right? Are you with me so far?

a 3

All the rest of these images are versions of the first one in the post, so I am doubling up on the filters. That one is a ‘neon’ filter, on top of the ’emboss’ filter.

a 4

I guess the point I am making is that if you consider photography and glass blowing to be forms of media, and you take in the fact that there are layers of digital media going on…

a 5

And you remember that a blog is also media… which is just plural for ‘medium’, or so I seem to recall…

a 6

Then, well…

a 7

Then this is a whole lot of media.
