Obsessed with Dirt

Percy:  Ah, it's Saturday/Caturday again.  What can we do to get into mischief today?

Micah"  Well, we could hide Jan's purse under the bed and watch her look for it.

Sam:  I think Percy meant what mischief can we get into on the blog.

Cyndi:  Let's have some fun with the spring photos we posted yesterday.

Merci: Good idea.   It's Sepia Saturday so we can start with turning them sepia.

Buddy:  Don't forget it's also Caturday Art.  We get to make any changes to a photo we want.

Marcus: You mean, like make a tree grow out of the back of your head?  Uh, sorry, Buddy.  I guess you don't like that idea.  What else is there?

Cameron:  Here is the original color photo.

Rusty:  Here it is in sepia.

Marcus:  It's pretty.  It looks like dirt.

Rusty:  Doesn't the blue tint make the scene appear icy and cold?  Brrrr.  Just looking at it reminds me of the ice storm we had last month. 

Cameron:  Three artistic views of the same photograph. 

Merci: Here is the wisteria in the pines original.

Micah:  Taken on a nice, sunny day.

Sam:  Doesn't look like such a nice day in sepia, does it?

Marcus:  I like this.  Those branches look like they're covered in dirt. I feel like I could stand below them and take a dirt bath.

Percy:  We boosted the colors in this version to make it appear more vibrant.

Cyndi:  This is the tree on the corner.

Marcus:  I don't like this one as much.  It looks bland..

Buddy:  You mean this one doesn't remind you of dirt?

Marcus:  It does.  But it doesn't look as if there is much dirt in it.  

Rusty:  Dirt must be a canine thing.  We cats would rather roll in grass.

Rusty:  We inverted the colors in this version.  The brown sky kind of looks like the picture was taken in an alien world, doesn't it?.

Marcus: I think it looks like we were all digging, throwing dirt into the air,and the sky is covered with dirt.  *grin*  And it's all going to fall on us.

Sam:  Marcus, I'm starting to think you might need counseling.  You're obsessed with dirt.

Marcus:  Yes, I am.  That's why I like you.  You've got all that dirt on you, Sam.

Sam:  Those are spots, Marcus.  Spots and freckles.


We're joining Ruckus the Eskie for Sepia Saturday.

    Jan is furry smart, our mom bean is clueless when it comes to coloring pictures. She says it 'cuz she didn't go to kidder garden.

    Again, what's up with the dirt?
