It’s been a long, long time
Since I’ve been on such a wild ride
That it’s hard to decide
On the extent of my decline
It’s taken me a while
And always brings a smile
To add the many miles
Between places in my mind
Poetry is like packing a box. It’s all about the economy of space and some people are better at both than others. My teachers often chided me for substituting poetry for prose by writing terse notes in bold red letters on the assignments I handed in. I guess we can’t all be happy and we are certainly not all the same.
This particular photo was taken with the iPhone 3G at the Dallas Airport. I cropped it and did a little fuddling about with the contrast afterwards mostly because I needed something to work on while I am testing the trial download of Adobe Aperture 3. This is really my first experience with Aperture and I never really got into using iPhoto on my MacBook so it’s a whole new world in many ways. There is a lot to like about the user interface and tools with plenty of adjustment presets that will get you started on enhancing your photos very quickly. It’s pretty impressive and should appeal to both new and experienced photographers who want to organize and edit their work as efficiently as possible.
