So sorry to keep you waiting, folks! This new temp job keeps me busy all morning/day so the only time I have to take pictures and post them are in the evenings. Making excuses already, and we’re only on the 10th day!! But here you are, the long, one-day wait is finally over!!
DAY 9: SOMEONE I LOVE
So the reason I chose the kitty was because she was right there, and I do love the cute kitteh! Her name is Kiera and Heidi brought her home in October of ’09. She’s very playful; here you see her in little tube. She likes to lie in it and run in and out of it when playing with her toys. She’s relatively quiet and has only chewed through 3 of my wires. I think she was still adjusting to having me in the apartment. That, or she hates me. I guess she doesn’t share the same love I have for her.
The reason the photo is slightly blurry is because while in her tube, there isn’t a whole lot of light. So I had my ISO set fairly high in order for my camera to be able to focus on her. I adjusted the red and magenta colour balances so that it wasn’t quite so red, but there was no tool I could find to sharpen the image. If you know of one in Gimp, please let me know.
DAY 10: A CHILDHOOD MEMORY
What you see here is a collection of some of my favourite childhood movies. I’m a big movie collector and my collection would not be complete without these movies. The only ones I’m still missing in my “Childhood Movies” section are Quick Change, Terminator 2, and White Men Can’t Jump. I know; what did my parents let me watch as a child??
Not too much to say here- used my macro setting on the camera and adjusted the brightness of all the colours, just to make them pop a little more, but not as much as the pop art effect gives. Nice to know that tool is there if I ever feel like pop art is just a bit “too poppy.”
