Picture This


It’s getting easier to get CUTE with images online and I generally resisted the web2 ways to distort or enhance images. Still, you never know when one of the freebie sites will have just the effect you need for a particular blog post.

Dumpr for instance has a few interesting tweaks, but with only my laptop, my image archives are largely someplace else and I don’t have much to play with. (Guess I’d better get busy with the camera today!)

So here’s a Dumpr-rendered shot from several years back–from Black Dog Salvage, matter of fact–that has become the object d’art of interest to these two museum-goers.
