I'm going to tell you something straightaway here... I woke up at 3-something this morning with my brain scanning whatever to DO with this notion of Hardware.
I know... odd the things that will wake one up so abruptly!!!
Anyhow, I had a day today. I went into it with my eyes wide open and my attitude adjusted accordingly as I spent the better part of 6 hours on the bus or waiting for a bus or taking care of things at 4 places I needed to DO things today.
I sort of thought I'd arrive home this afternoon, earlier than it turns out I did, and write a funny little post about what my 3AM brain decided. But... I am just too tired.
So without further ado...
My "hardware" that allows me to digitally fiddle includes 2 very important things:
My Casio Exilim camera and my HP Photosmart that scans. These two are second nature to me Now, which makes me laugh a little as I thought about them a few times on the bus or while walking. [which I did several miles of]
I didn't understand scanning for the longest time and even when I BEgan to grasp it I still didn't DO much more than "DOing" a scan.
Little by slowly, largely BEcause of fun things like Photo Art Friday, I have discovered its Magic Carpet alter ego.
My camera, though it does NOT get so strenuous a workout anymore, is a replacement for one I got in 2008. Same camera, more pizzaz... But I have so many photographs to work with that I don't spend a lot of my time taking pictures, just making them dance or sing or play well with others.
I played awhile this morning with 2 photos, one of my camera, the other of my scanner bed. I started in Picasa and moved into Pixlr Express and this is what happened...
And Now to a lovely glass of wine and a bit of supper and off to sleepyland for me.
