My new computer arrived, and just as children on Christmas Day will play with the boxes in which their toys arrived and not the toys themselves, so too did this overgrown kid play with the styrofoam packaging.
I have a ton of posts in the archive that start with “Someone Notices the Contrast of White on White,” a title inspired by a lyric in “Round Here,” an old Counting Crows song. The funny thing about playing with using different cameras, different angles, and different pure white objects at different times of the day is that the cameras will capture the weirdest colors that are just not there. Some of these shots came out in a strange pale orange (!) before I edited them. Others I left unedited even though the colors are wrong, just so you can see.
See what I mean by strange pale orange? Maybe I’ll pretend that I chose a sepia effect. A few more, and your faithful amateur shutter-pusher has no idea where the pale purples originated.
