Again. I apparently like naming my images black and white. I also like taking fewish snaps and abusing them to the fullest.

Black and white me.
You know you want to click me.

NP. Oasis – The Masterplan

Update: Worked with a 5-10 colour indexed mode image to get a very small gif. Rethresholded it to different values to get more detail. I am new to indexed images. They are a lot more restrictive than the usual ARGB. GIF *shudder*. In other news, been helping out a bit on mmmaybe.gimp.org. Menial stuff for now, but someone’s got to do it.

Black and white me too.

    We could be :). Beginning to love your new set too. Sharp contrast with the peacefulness of paper and the sorts of textures you’d introduced earlier.

    Curious though. Didn’t you cut/scrape/hurt yourself handling those rather jagged looking shards? I’d say something along the lines of be careful but I guess you know that.

    I noticed we do things differently. (Yes, I in a less creative way.) I take things that exist and then modify the pictures to what I want to express. Not the other way around. I’m lazy.

    This picture is quite hmm.. cheesy is the word. I was doing a lot of things with this. Primarily mocking *cough*, a rather famous person. Black and white – black or white – noseless – mr. i’m black yet i’m white and I have an odd preference for kids.

    you look like an evil, sadistic, serial killer :P

    Lol, and I’m sure you seeing Irreversible has nothing to do with that opinion and outlook.

    How’s Irreversible? heard a lot about it. I doubt it’ll hit the dvd rentals here.

    In order: thanks :). and no, I didt. Maybe I’m thick skinned literally too. The glass pics could be an add for vim (the dish wash detergent), it did quite a splendid job! And re doing things differently – my sister agrees and wishes otherwise(for me) vehemently- she calls me clutterbug – because I see a picture in everything – mostly discards. I have more ‘things in development’ at my place than clothes(serious aberration for a female : )

    I don’t think I’m very creative . its more of a obsessive-compulsive thingy (I did that test too)! And for the record, I like the way you cover different grounds in photography. I’ve more of this one-track mind which is very boring. Really.

    And the black and white Mr. Jackass – now I get it !
