Still goofing around -

"Fashionably Green"
$50 Unframed - LUCAS GALLERY

digitally manipulated photograph by Mick Mather
I'm still taking advantage of this long weekend to settle into the secret visual laboratory and play a little bit more. I've used a lot of that playtime pushing the limits of some of the filters that I don't use very often - although lately, the reverse has been true. Anyway, this is a photograph with no additional elements added beyond the various filtered and manipulated layers. In the end, this reminded me of a nature center where I used to walk about 3 days per week, including snowshoes during the winter months breaking trail through 2 or 3 feet of snow some mornings.

It's definitely raining in that pic, it's early in the morning and she's rushing to eork, getting wet and soaked.
Bloody autumn.
And Monday in a few hours.
And work.

And they promised it'll rain tomorrow again..

I say thanks so much for the positive comment. Yes, it's a manipulated photograph that's about 4 or 5 layers deep.

susupetal:
It was that wind blown, rainy day quality that I liked about this one myself. The photo was actually taken around 11:30 in the morning on a very sunny, but chilly, Spring day. Not a lot of difference between that and Bloody Autumn except for the season to follow. I do hate to say it, but let Monday come. This Monday is our Labor Day Holiday and I'm off work! Hooray! :D

A rainy day, yes. Sorry about commenting so little and often so late, but I'm rather busy with my work. I'll do better when it calms down. If it does.

I have my feet up, a cup of coffee, twirling a pencil and plans to do NOT ONE THING today! :D

elegia:
As I look again, she looks like you! Except for the short haircut. Are you a zombie, Elegia? :)
- By the way, I would never erase one of your comments. Griesmail had the same trouble a few days back so I suspect it's something to do with Blogger ... I'm not sure though.

hpy:
It's quite alright. I've noticed that commenting often goes in cycles that follow our schedules of work and available time. I would never criticize. Even our own beloved Kirsi has been otherwise occupied and saying little these past few months. In that regard, we must understand that real lives often intrude and, of course, we forgive such petite transgressions for absence makes the heart grow fonder. Since we've all mentioned work in one way or another, perhaps a question to be answered with another drawing or artwork: What do each of us do for our work?

griesmail:
Thanks, Trijnie, I plan to lounge around in my jammies ALL day!

I'll think about redoing a post about my work. I already showed my office once.

I enjoyed seeing the photograph of your office and look forward to another post about what it is that you do there.

O-ou, my comment IS here. I didn't see it at the first time. Maybe I was morning blind. Sorry! Perhaps I'm a zombie without eyes... ;)

We all suffer from temporary blindness from time to time. :)
