When I got my new DSLR camera, I bought Photoshop Elements 9. I promptly installed it on my computer and proceeded to do absolutely nothing with it because I just don’t have the time to learn it and it certainly isn’t intuitive as far as I’m concerned. All of the pictures that I share on this blog are for the most part, straight out of the camera. This week I finally made some time to learn a little.

Yup, those are my toes at the bottom of the frame. All in all not a very good picture. I mean unless you are into eating fortune cookies off of plates on backyard patios with tantalizing toes near by. Here’s what I ended up with after playing around with Elements…
We watched the movie Cyrus and I really liked it. It’s the first movie in awhile that I was really into. It’s weird, quirky, amusing, and at times uncomfortable. Just my style.
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
