I don’t always see the world the way other people do.
These two fuzzy babies were at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. The photo was taken in 2010 but I just recently edited it.
Here is a link if you want to know more.
Although I thought of getting a cat for some time, when I got Triton it was kind of a spur of the moment thing. While making space for the new girl I just threw down a sheet of cardboard where her feeding area was. After a time this grew to be a bit gross. I decided she needed a special spot just for her.
The top is the original concept that I worked up in Photoshop. Things evolved as it went. The cat in the bottom right was left out. I found print duct tape at Joann’s. The letters did not come out exactly as I wanted. The whole thing is covered in clear contact paper. It is not as sticky as I would have liked. However, overall I am happy with the end result. Triton? I really don’t think she gives a lick.
If you know me, you know that I am very much opposed to animals being forced to perform for us. I am against circuses and I’m not so keen on zoos.
However, back in 2008 I did go to the Oregon Zoo. It was then I was able to photograph this beauty. It is a shame that animals such as this are kept in captivity while the wild tigers are being pushed to extinction.
The Big Cat Rescue in Florida works to keep out of horrible situations that the sometimes find themselves in. Big cats should not be pets, or in canned hunts, or in petting zoos. They are not for us to exploit.
It seems that a lot of people are addicted to the “Angry Birds” game. This guy is angry for real. This is from the winter storm we had back in 2008. Apparently seagulls don’t like the snow.
I was able to go to Photoshop World in 2010. It takes place in Las Vegas. Since I have never been there before, I enjoyed playing the tourist. I spent part of my time snapping random photos. In front of the MGM Grand Hotel is a big golden lion. Of course I couldn’t resist photographing it. When I got home I could help but to notice that there were a thousand distracting elements in the photo. Ah… but what a great photo to practice content aware on.
I used a combination of “content aware fill” and cloning.
