Creativity is the residue of wasted time~Albert Einstein

I love what I created here from one single raw image that I captured last weekend when Sassy and I went out and wasted time exploring the waterfront along Rustin Way in Tacoma WA. Some people would look at the state of our yard and the inside of our house and say,( I have a few people in mind), that we were definitely wasting time gallivanting around instead of tending to the obviously needed yard work and home owner maintenance.

Anyway, I love photo processing, cause I can sit on my ass, drink beer and listen to music while I'm doing it. What's adds to that fun is having some new photo editing software like Photoshop CS6 beta. One of the nice new filters that I like is "Oil Paint" which I used on this image. If you stand back it's not so obvious but works well in my opinion. Zoom in and the brush strokes become much more obvious.

Below is the original raw image I started out with before I started drinking beer and wasting time.

Happy Hump Day!!!
