Green Leafy Background

Random pictures sometimes yield interesting shots. 

Testing out some equipment a while back, it was necessary to exercise it by taking pictures of anything or everything. 

Today, going through the random picture directories  on the laptop, and at this point they need to be poured out onto the external drive.  There are so many that have been used that it is time to move them on. 

Something caught my eye on the picture, and with some judicious cropping, this was the result.  Never mind that there was some flotsam on one of the leaves just below and toward the right that looked nasty, or there’s a big gap in the foliage to the right and top.  Nobody sees that.  Shhh… Don’t tell!

It’s like Mom said, you can eat that piece of fruit, just cut out the bad bits.  That might be a good philosophy of life, cut the bad bits and try to create something interesting out of the rest. 

In case you are curious, the tool used was something called “IrfanView”.  Wonderful Swiss Army Knife of a program that will let you do that sort of crop, paste, and save as well as some very basic color adjustments.  A while back a blog posting was done on how to get and install the software.  It is free, and if you would like to try it, check this older article out.
