Tech Art

If you’re a regular reader, you might have noticed I’ve increased the font size. It makes it easier to read. I’ve edited some pictures from Carolyn’s Flickr stream over at a Wonder of Tech. This is one of my more unusual and artistic edits.

What do you think?

This week:

The Scottish Power double price increase was yesterday’s blog and should be of interest to all my UK readers who are getting stung by the energy companies this winter. 

Frugal and Thrifty Christmas was my thrifty Thursday blog. Even if you’re not short of money this Christmas, it is an expensive time of year. Why get into debt bashing your credit card, when a little thrifty shopping can save you heaps of cash?

Writing, mixing fact and fiction was Wednesday’s blog about writing and you can have a little fun mixing fact and fiction; especially on April 1st! That was an interesting blog anyway and worth reading even if you only want to influence someone with a letter.

Neodigital Art | Autumn trees featured pictures of the autumn trees and the amazing colours we see at this time of the year.  We do need sunshine to fully appreciate the colours and we haven’t had much of that in England. Some trees have completely lost their leaves now, it is a very brief show of colour; so we have to pay attention and appreciate it.

The era of peace and love was Monday’s post when I remembered the 60’s and all that fashion and music that spread from Britain across the world. Britain was confident then, we led the way in popular music, gave the world mini skirts and mini cars and were told we had never had it so good. Things went down after that and the rebellious young people of my generation either rolled over and  became part of the establishment or were just put in their place. There were hundreds of pop groups doing well then. How many can you name? The record companies only favour one or two, there were too many then. Why is it that there can be only one winner? Why can’t the X-factor have multiple winners? Why do we have a society of many poor and few rich? Why is the jackpot on the Euro-millions over 100 million sometimes? Do we have to always appeal to people’s greed? People can get too rich and powerful. Ask Jimmy Savile’s alleged victims, why they never spoke up at the time. Too much power is dangerous.

I’ve just been asked by a Chinese student to explain a sentence that was written in English. It was badly worded; it was from the Economist. God save us, from experts. God save us, from the rich and powerful.

Do you have something to say? Please comment.

  1. Hi Mike, Very cool! Those effects you added to my original image were cool I would love to see a side-by-side comparison and see what you did to create those cool effects.

    I created the original image using an iPad app called Uzu. I love the app but I haven’t had a chance to write about it yet (there is so much great tech out there!).

    I originally created these images to use as a header image for my blog when I overhauled it in May. But I quickly figured out that round images aren’t the best fit on a rectangular header.

    Thanks so much for sprinkling your talent on my image, Mike!

  2. Hi Carolyn,

    I can’t remember which program I used to edit this. I think I was bored and I did a folder full of different images. I think I reversed the colours. I did crop one image and make it square, but it doesn’t really look right. I think I might have another go at editing the same image with Photoscape and see what I come up with! I’m into Photoscape now, it has a few cool features. 🙂
