Closeup of Watermelon Slices (Posterized Photo)

It's summer and it's hot, so here's some more watermelon to cool things off. I used Painter to apply a posterizing effect to the photo that I posted here yesterday.

Closeup of Watermelon Slices

Yesterday's post was a photo that I took of a plate of watermelon slices -- for last night's dinner. I liked the photo so much that I decided to more with it. The first step was to get a closer crop of the image, and here it is. To be continued. . . .

Slices of Watermelon

Tonight I was slicing a beautiful little watermelon to for dinner. I was admiring the colors and shapes, and so I decided to take a photo with my iPhone camera. Later I cropped the original to get this composition.

Heading North from Boston (Digital Woodcut)

I have already posted two versions of this image (yesterday and the day before), and this is the last, I promise. This is a view of Boston as we are heading north, and about to enter the tunnel. I took the original photo on July 1, around 8 pm. For this version, I applied a woodcut effect, which I like because of the black outline. But this is more of a monochromatic approach, so the tunnel ahead looks white instead of yellow.

Heading North from Boston (Posterized Photo)

Last night I posted a photo that I took a few weeks ago as we were driving north from Boston. Tonight I used Painter to add some posterizing effect.

Heading North from Boston

I took this picture on July 1. We had just left the opening reception at Galatea in SOWA (South of Washington) in Boston. It was about 8 PM, not yet dark, but the city lights were starting to come on. We were about to head into the tunnel. Tonight I did a little editing of this photo, and cropped it to get this composition.

Memory Imprints Design Horizontal with Border

Over the past week, I have been working on a design for Memory Imprints, and I finished it two days ago. Yesterday I created a simplified version of the design to use when we need a horizontal format. Today I went back to the horizontal version and changed the placement of a couple of leaves. Then I added a border. I may need to make more changes, but I do like this version better. Memory Imprints helps people capture their family memories in words and images.
