So, if I were to count the hours I spent with this photo open on my computer.. well, we're just not going to, and that's that.
Really what's crazy is that I finally took some time to do some real reading. As in, I read bazillions of tutorials on Photoshop--the most important lessons being how to use levels and curves. Hoooolllly crap those two tools alone.. just, wow. The tutorials on that guy's site rock.
Letsee when did I take this...
Ah. It was the Saturday Mary and I talked for the first time in a while, where she was so encouraging about my photography and we ended up making plans for the future. Yesh. Anyway, beeeeefore that I decided I just needed to get out of the house, so I drove way out to Matthews and found myself at Target, where I wandered aimlessly for a while, eventually settling on some weightlifting-type gloves to provide a little protection for my hands when practicing capoeira on pavement (an issue I deal with daily) and a rather-interesting why-not purchase.
Afterwards I went over to Panera bread. Which I also ate at three days later with Danielle, but uhh, ... roight. After THAT, I noticed the sun was setting, so went on a hike to get up to higher ground and found myself right off a freeway exit ramp, where I took a handful of shots. Good times.
