A brief word on editing

Lets talk about editing. As from my previous post, sometimes things don’t work out. And that’s okay. Sometimes you can fix them, sometimes you are just having fun with the editor tools to see what happens. These pictures are my examples doing that. Even though they are not superb, they have their artsy side.

1. First picture is my favourite edit. I used the exposure and shadows. It has its old school photography look. But you still knows it’s night time.

2. The second photo is the original unedited picture

3. The Third picture is I turned up the exposure to see if I could make it look like daytime.

4. The Fourth picture is softened it so I looked like a painting.

All done in Adobe Lightroom.

Meme Me

A few weeks ago I posted a picture on Instagram and asked them to make a meme out of it. The clip is from the show The Office. Here are the wonderful results. I ❤️ memes.

Funnish Fact for the Day

So while searching the internet about Tornadoes I came across an article about myths of things to do in protecting yourself from tornadoes. One of them being is opening your windows to equalize pressure. Apparently this is a myth. And now that I read about it, I feel stupid for even believing it. Reason being its a myth? Because its a TORNADO, If its crossing your path, its going to send debris through your house no matter what. Plus you are wasting time and could put yourself in danger if you go to open a window when there is a warning.

Why did I not think of this before?

Another myth that I know I was taught in school is about how the southwest corner of the basement is the safest place during a tornado. Again, when you think about it, it totally makes sense that it is a myth. Its a Tornado, no matter which way it comes from its going to through debris anywhere.

Here are the articles I found.

On a completely side note of crappy information, I found this one site that said to stay in your car. This I know is not a fact. DO NOT EVER stay in your car during a tornado.

Moral of this story: Question everything and do your own research! 

Foursquare or King’s Court

Playworks Foursquare Game

 

Do you know the playground game I am referring to? I know it as King’s Court, but some know it as Foursquare. Foursquare name really gives away the playing court. It is a square that is divided into 4. From there Number 4 (or the King as I know it) serves the ball and the others have to hit it if the ball lands your square and send it to another square.

My school yard had painted squares to play in. I do remember fondly playing it. Though I have to say I haven’t played since Grade 3 I think. (Some 20 years ago). I bring this up because I played yesterday. And the ones I played with, haven’t played in that long as well. It was quite the fun adventure.

Now the one point I want to drive home, is having fun. No matter what, have fun no matter how old you are. May be its good to shed what we look on the outside and play those games that reflect our inside once in awhile. There are some many childhood games I remember playing, yet I cannot remember the name for the life of me.

Now I turn this to you. What childhood games did you enjoy? Have you played any recently?

 

Doctor Who Conditioning

So apparently the world has slowly been conditioning me to want to watch doctor who. I was reading my copy of ” Who Ology: BBC Doctor Who, The Official Miscellany” and came across the section where Doctor who has been mentioned or shown in other shows. And low and behold, a Tiny Toon Adventure episode apparently has the TARDIS sitting with other space craft. I couldn’t find a video but I was able to find a tumblr post with it.

Besides Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, that was the only show that I know of that was secretly conditioning my brain for the awesome Sci-Fi that I currently enjoy.

Another mind blown, say what moment 😉
