The Shape Of Things
I'm giving abstract Thursday another try. I hope this one is better than my previous efforts. The theme was "shape/s." I photographed my iPhone wireless charger and cropped it to 4x10 in. I rotated it three more times, saving them as separate photos. I did a selection/inverse selection and turned the rug mug surrounding the disks black. Then I pulled up this swirly background and placed each photo on a separate layer. I moved and pulled and tugged on them before adjusting the opacity, every layer a differently. And there you have it. The original is an extra.
I bought a new car! I didn't actually drive away in it because I have to unfreeze at least one of the three credit bureaus. I froze them all after the Equifax hack. I get the itch about every six years to get something new. I didn't deviate too much from the model I have now (Honda Civic EX) getting a new 2018 EX-T model. It's slightly larger, as my current one was from my previous one (which may alter this in my garage ) and will be my first dark-colored car. It's not super geeked out but it's still really cool. I suspect this will be the last vehicle I ever purchase. Lots of features I like but my favorite is that it is turbo charged.
I'm a pretty good negotiator and got up to walk away twice. They really want to clear the lot of the previous year's models so I was able to get a decent deal. I will get it Monday. That will give me plenty of time to get everything out of my current car and take a bunch of photos of it for posterity. It's a beautiful burgundy and I will definitely miss it when I get the mystic blue.
I think this one is timely:
Q: When should you buy a bird?
A: When it’s going cheep!
