Here are links to some of the things we talked about today:

Miles Davis albums on iTunes (I mentioned Kind of Blue, Birth of the Cool, and the tune “Hannibal” from Amandla. I may have mentioned Sketches of Spain as well.) ¬†https://www.themultimedianinja.com/miles

(Did I mention we did a funk 4/4 version of Miles’ tune “All Blues” on my EP Guiro!…? Click HERE for that iTunes page or HERE for CD Baby.)

Bike Sculpture at Peg's Cantina

The original shot of the bike sculpture at Peg’s Cantina. Notice how much cropping can help.

Bike Sculpture at Peg's Cantina-Instagram

Blur applied using PS Touch, Snapseed HDR filter, and Instagram crop/frame/filter. Quick and dirty, but a fairly interesting image for social media.

Here are some examples:

Harold_Sellers-Invest_In_glass

A selfie by Harold Sellers (from Episode 1), background removed with PS Touch, Gotham Noir filter from Paper Camera, word bubble in PS Touch. Again, quick and dirty; but it got the job done.

Egmont Key HDR

A typical HDR filter result in Snapseed. Pic taken from just above water level at Egmont Key.

Ocean Abstract-original

“Ocean Abstract,” original art via Fragment app. (From raw photo of the ocean just North of Key West, polarizing filter and nothing else!)
