The 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic of the United Nations considers a bicycle to be a vehicle

The bicycle, bike, or cycle, is a pedal-driven, human-powered vehicle with two wheels attached to a frame, one behind the other. Invented in Europe in the 19th century, the bicycle has become the world’s most popular vehicle with about 1.4 billion in use.
Since the first bicycle, many important details have been improved, especially with the advent of modern materials and computer-aided design. These have allowed for a proliferation of specialized bicycle types.

Time: 10 hours due to learning different techniques
DT: K PMS116c
Reduction: aprox 50%

This time I was practicing layering elements with their own adjustment layers to test the load on the computer. I tried to be a little more critical with tonal variations to keep consistent with original. Less with the healing tool and more use of the blur tool which saved time. There some detail lost due to balancing the histo, but that was expected. Next was keeping the grey-scale environment intact when processing the duotone for later adjustments. Overall this is an improvement.

Somewhere a faucet drips.

Somewhere a faucet drips.


Clearly I’m going through a black and white, earthy noir moment. This song plays through my head when I look at this. So does this one for some reason.

I’ve been doing a pretty decent job of staying off the computer, which explains unanswered messages. Sorry for that, but I really need to keep myself offline especially now that college is starting again in a couple of weeks. I’m not feeling that photographic at the moment though…once classes begin I’ll probably be more motivated. I feel really bad about not being able to follow the work of others as much and I hope I can catch up as much as possible when I can! I don’t like missing out on your beautiful photographs even though being off the internet has been really good for my peace of mind.

Yesterday I modeled for the amazing Andrea Pun and I can’t wait to see what she came up with! I got to play fashion model, which was absolutely nerve-wracking since I’m not in the least modelesque, but we had a wonderful stylist and make-up team and though I was nervous it was very fun. Check out one of the shots here!

The Treasure Hunt

The Treasure Hunt

Keys … Check
Pirate Skull Eye Patch … Check
Blood Stain on wooden chest … Check

Alright then, it has only taken me a year to find these. They were well hidden. Stuffed in a little open box on the computer table within arms reach of where I sit every day. Finally, I am able to go on a real adventure to find the Treasure that I don’t remember what it is or where I buried it.

I really hope I didn’t bury it in the cat box again.

View with your Pirate Swords hanging from your side and saying, Aye Matey, every ten minutes.
