The Land of the Living

As we enter the "summer season," the weather is still on the damp side. I have been experimenting with more photo editing software and filters that produce something resembling artistic accents and flourishes.

For example, these daisies look "painted."

As does the "lonely farmhouse in the rain," below:

The software and filters provide diverse opportunities for appearance, but the final product is not simply automatically generated. It requires a good amount of creative attention. Generally, however, I find these kinds of efforts refreshing, as long as I don't go crazy and overdo things.

I also have more ways to experiment with the graphic presentation of text. These are hardly what one would call "classical" settings, but they are fun to compose. I may eventually develop more of a feeling for what "works" in graphics.😉
