Why do I always end up in the same place?
Maybe ‘place’ isn’t the right word, maybe ‘feeling’ is better.
Why do I always end up feeling the same feeling? Maybe I just haven’t learned how do deal with it. I think I have though. I know how not to get there, but I always seem to be there. Started to switch back to ‘place’ there again…
But now I am way tired. I will go to bed and who knows that tomorrow will bring.

So… I have been playing with making color photographs into black and white.
There are two ways I know how to do it.
The first one you just get rid of the color information and make it grayscale. The second one is a little more complicated but pretty easy.

So you take a picture.

And you could just make it greyscale.

Or as some people say; change it to LAB, select the lightness channel, turn that greyscale, duplicate it and mix it with Soft light at about 30-40% op.

Which one do you like better?

…forgive the cobras and all the snakes.

  1. So I get to sleep in my own bed for the first time in a week… I am looking forward to it.
  2. My wetsuit arrived. At least I think it is. I haven’t opened the box.
  3. eBay isn’t the place to buy something if you want to get it fast…

Just another ancient serpent that never earned your love
But still you find me underneath the rocks and in the ground
I cowered there just short of air and never made a sound
It’s true that I’m in love with you, and even in my shame
You wipe away the imperfections and take away the pain
You wrap your loving arms around this wretched thing called me
Your love is all I’ll ever need, your love has set me free
