  Monday Morning Mirth  

film grain : le true grit

It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve made the odyssey from the chariot of the godz, the #66, to the coach of paradisio, the Blue Line Subway, after a building move downtown! In those two weeks, I’ve discovered what a creature of habit I am: the bus route is south and many a morning I would be two blocks into the walk-to before twirling and re-setting the body compass north…

I’m ridin’ different now and I’ve had a little fun celebrating with a subway stop portrait! I played with some casual tweaks on the original: the first picture above was processed with Photoshop’s Film Grain filter and is sort of how it really looks: dirty, gritty and damp…


cutout filter : how it looks when not enough coffee has been imbibed

plastic wrap : the portal

This is my favorite because when I first looked right down that tunnel I was a little sleepy and it looked like the Portal to Atlantis from Stargate!! Now I’m a fan of all things(!) Stargate and like to let my mind wander while I’m waiting for the train! Who would you be tunnel dreaming of?
