Lincoln City and Henry Rollins

Recently I went with my friend to Lincoln City on the Oregon coast. She was hoping to find one of the glass floats that they hide.  Every year hand-crafted glass floats are placed along the 7-1/2 miles (12 km) of public beach in Lincoln City, from the Roads End area to the Cutler City area. We didn’t have any luck with that.  However I was able to take some nice photos.

Henry Rollins Quote

I’m a fan of Henry Rollins.  His writing and spoken word stuff is fun.  I thought this quote worked with the image.

 

Gold Text

I’ve been working on getting my business cards made.  I probably would have had them done a long time ago, but I wanted them to be “perfect”.  Eventually I will have perfect cards, but for now I have adequate cards.  I have 500 very orange cards that match my very orange couch.  I like the orange, but it makes me realize that I have to calibrate my monitor.  These cards are ORANGE!   Yes Kymm, there is a difference between print and web.  I will post an image of the card later.

Meanwhile, I’ve been working on upgrading my skills.   I was reading Photoshop User magazine and I found a very nice text effect. (June 2011 edition)

It gives the effect of gold.  It looks very nice.  I put the lettering on a background that I made using “clouds” and “glass” filters.
