View Full Version : Things I do when I become BORED.

I'm stuck in my house this week. Can't drive, can't walk, can't do much of anything other than sit at my desk with my leg propped up or sit on the couch. Daytime TV is BORING. So, I'm sitting here at my desk. Camera on the right of me, piece of old quilt nearby, and a dozen roses just waiting to be photographed!!!
SOOOO, I took some pictures. Then I took ONE of those pictures and transformed it in several different ways.
Yes, I need to get my knee feeling better......or get a life....or something!!! ha ha ha
This is the original picture.....
Then I started adjusting and readjusting and just playing......

Have a great Wednesday everyone!!!

After just a few days??? Your knee needs to feel better soon or Bert should be afraid of being photographed to death.......

I know, can you believe it???? This is only the SECOND day of being laid up like this, and I'm completely restless!!!! Part of it is trying to come up with something to do that will take my mind off of this stupid PAIN....Yes, poor Bert is afraid of the lists of projects I'm coming up with as I sit here watching HGTV!! ha ha ha
And I can't even get into the doctor until FRIDAY morning -- things could get pretty rough around here.......LOL

What with NazNet's inerrancy debate how can you possibly be bored!
Seriously, neat photography.
Seriously, hope you feel better real soon.

(PS -- I have been READING that thread......that's as far as it goes for me!!! Well, unless I just can't help myself.....)

Take the off time you have to really start working with Adobe Elements. Don't do the things you already know how to, but concentrate on learning new things.

Yes, I actually have a tutorial on CD that I'm going through, along with a black notebook with screen shots. I was actually learning about "layering" that day that I played with the rose picture. That has been the most difficult thing I've tried to learn so far....I didn't actually post the picture that I was successful in merging layers with that day (it was too large, and I didn't really feel like decreasing the size of it!!!). Plus it wasn't all that pretty. But...it worked. And I need to do it again and again so I can remember what I did!!! ha ha ha
So, stay tuned....I'll be posting more as I learn more!!! You mean, you were not impressed that I magically turned the red rose into purple? I hadn't done that before, either!! Well, I take it back, I had done it by accident, but this time I did it on purpose!!! ha ha ha
