I didn't pay enough attention to the light. This boy was preaching in the park. He's holding a bible which is almost invisible here. I cropped the top of his head. I just spend too much time trying to get every mechanical thing right. Again, though, I think it will get better.
I also need to spend some time in post-production. I want to begin to hand color the photos. I've done it before. It takes a lot of time. But I have an idea I need to try. I think I can give them a bit of translucence as if they were autochromes. Sort of. I haven't tried what I have in mind yet, but soon. . . .
But it was a good idea. Bible Boy. It is fun to walk to the planet with a camera. It is a nice way to engage it for me.
I've been laid up with a stomach virus that I may have passed on to Ili. It lasts for days. I think I am better today, though, but she is incapacitated. We are frail humans.
Another Super Tuesday is coming, but the big show is ready to begin. I'm talking about March Madness--the NCAA Basketball Tournament. This year, I think, will be crazy. I don't watch sports any more and haven't really seen any college basketball at all this year, so I have to make my picks sentimentally. I'm pulling for underdogs all the time. I love to see the upset. Turn over the applecart. Let's see what happens.
I have had a week off from the factory, but I return today. I didn't have much of a vacation, but it was better than working. Now I go to see the rumpled faces of the sleep deprived who have gotten there before I.
The way of the world, I will say. So it is.
