Dance like no one is watching

but I lied apparently because it does make me happy.

I was reworking a photo from last summer since I am being spotlighted on IHMMB and the one I already on Flickr had a large watermark on it. I worked it a little different, made it moodier and fit more of what I had in mind when I took the image and uploaded it.

I woke up this morning to find a bunch of comments most of them from people I didn’t know. Why? Well, it was explored and not like #499 like my interesting garlic that hung on by the skin of their clove for just a few days. I don’t know if it will be dropped or where it will stay but for now it made Explore and is getting comments. Honestly the comments mean more to me than the Explore so thanks everyone for the comments.

In other news, I have a test date. June 24th at 8 am I will be sitting in a testing center in Las Vegas taking my boards. DH had the wise idea of turning it into a family trip. Ummm, I don’t think so. We can take a celebratory family trip later.

I love it on the right image when it’s done right. I haven’t yet found my own done right.

I was playing with some textures tonight from Ghostbones and kept getting very frustrated and upset. I did find the Texture for Layers group on Flickr and joined them. They have some awesome tutorials that I hope work for me.

Anyways, this is what I got tonight


Same cemetery picture, just black and white. Be prepared to see more cemetery pictures coming up in the next few days.

Is a rather interesting concept on Flickr. Some mystery formula deciding which pictures get put on Flickr Explore. I was curious but not too into it until I realized that you can see how your photos rate on interestingness compared with your other photos. Hmmm.

The other day I was out at Garden Park and took several images of flowers (I know, you are all so very shocked) and no one was interested in my Dahlia. So, I started a campaign to increase its interestingness. I had a couple of offsite links to the photopage, I sent the link to a few people as well.

My views went up to 30 and it’s interestingness is still well, not that interesting. It ranks #53 on my list of photos. So now my curiosity is piqued and I am on a mission to find the secret of interestingness. Feel free to up my view count by clicking on the Dahlia image to take you to its Flickr page.
