Word and Image

Archive for April 10, 2017


I end up in fiber stores. Since I am a tech person, there is the choice of humming or finding something else. I like the patterns and color. The manager caught me. She asked me to post to Facebook. Ah! But I don’t Facebook. I’m sort of glad I don’t.

Patterns, close-ups, color, I realize that I am no Instagram or image manipulator. I don’t distort or go black and white. I don’t find it more interesting to dress up my picture. The original should speak for itself. Of course, Photoshop has made digital imaging truly manipulative. What is real anymore? To be sure, we accept manipulation in stride. That would make me old fashioned. Just not too… old.
