My old college friend Mike came up from San Diego to bbq. We barbecued meat, broccoli, and onion. It was epic. Good friends, good eats.

I dropped my dad off at his new physical therapist in Pasadena and had to go to the Apple Store. They open at 10:00 am and I got there at 9:54 am. So, I walked around the block and took some pictures. This planter is in a small alley (right next to Equator (a coffee place that's cool)). The ground is angled on purpose, btw.

A late night shot while driving through downtown Glendora. Since the original shot wasn't the strongest composition (and I needed a photo-a-day), I ran it through the fun, yet tacky Photoshop wringer.
In Photoshop, I merged 2 photos with different exposures. Next, I added a few filters... paint daubs, plastic wrap, and dry brush. Finally, I ran it through AlienSkin's Antimatter. It inverts colors and adds some character. That's why the bright streetlights show up as super dark circles.
It's been a long time since I've played in Photoshop. Maybe next time, I'll just take the time to capture a stronger image initially.
