I’ve spent the last two weeks communing with my computer, editing what I’m guessing is several thousand photos. I love this one, despite the obvious technical flaws. And I love that I can love such an imperfect photo.
Not much else to report here except:
1. Still not sure what to make as a contribution for Thanksgiving dessert. Pumpkin pie spoken for–any ideas?
2. I have come to the conclusion that Lightroom is like digital crystal meth, while Photoshop is like digital oatmeal, the slow-cooked kind. I love love love LR, but it makes me feel slick and a little empty inside because it is so fast and crazy and wheeee! I’m not sure if oatmeal or meth will win–any opinions out there in the crowd?
3. The one diversion I allowed myself this week, besides wincing briefly over poor Bronx Mowgli Wentz‘s name, was to follow along with the Mammoth Men, a heartbreakingly talented crew of 12 male photographers who severely and thoroughly documented their third “mancation” together this past week. Sadly, I’ve won NONE of the excellent swag being promoted by their sponsors so far, but hope flickers eternal. Below you’ll find my pathetic entry for their “Make the Mammoth Men Laugh” contest, which echoes some of their favorite activities in the past week. I don’t think it has a prayer of nabbing a win among their talented followers, but it does mean I have a ready-made BEST SHOT MONDAY. Hope my little Mammoth Men don’t hold this one against me someday, but look at the swag!
4. I was serious about suggestions for Thanksgiving dessert.
