A Polarized Merci

Cyndi:  This is one of our favorite days of the week.  It's weekend art time.

Micah:  Every day is my favorite day of the week.  There's always something fun going on.

Rusty:  There is?  Do we live in the same house?

Micah:  Yes, Rusty, we do and there is.  It's all a matter of catitude.  I choose to be a positive cat.

Merci:  We're going to play with one of my old action photos.  I was swinging a ball on a "rope".  This is the original.

Marcus:  Since today is Sepia Saturday, co-hosted by Ruckus the Eskie and Earl & Ethel, we'll start with the sepia version.  Don't you just love all that dirt!

Cameron:  We keep telling you it's not dirt, Cameron, it's sepia.  This is tomorrow's black and white photo.

Buddy:  Jan was playing around with filters and Merci yelled stop!  She really likes this.  We all do, so this version and the next are our pictures for Athena's Caturday Art

Sam:  Jan used the polarize filter on them and it totally changed the appearance of the lawn. The above was made from the color picture and the one below from a black and white one.

Percy:  Polarize will partially reverse an image.  See how the sunlit patches in the original became dark in these last two and the shaded part of the photo became lighter.  Jan wishes she had more time to play with photos.  It's such fun.  Yes, it's fun for her.  For us, it means writing our post in a hurry before she shuts the computer down and goes to bed.  We think it should be reversed.  We post, then she plays. 


  1. Great pic and we love all the different versions!

  11. Crikey that was a lot of fun with lots of special effects but I was wondering about that chain on the ground. It looks strong enough to keep a great dane under control. You must be awful ferocious or something!! You were giving that ball on a rope a fair dinkum go, aye??
