I\’ll put up something a bit different to end the week. Yesterday, I had a tire go flat from a nail and ended up at a tire sales company that my family has used for probably 20 years now. It\’s a small business ran the way old fashioned tire service places operated decades ago: you pay for the tire and they fix flats, rotate, or balance the tires until they wear out. Really nice guys. While we waited, I used the I-phone to snap a photo of these two chairs and then processed it with the app Glaze to give it a painterly look. I love texture overlays in photographs but can\’t seem to find a happy medium during my experimentation. I\’ve done a few others that I like much better but thought this one turned out OK.
"Now, when electricity, indoor plumbing, and many personal machines have become
normal, people generally assume that a hundred years ago life was "hard" for almost
everybody, though few still have the experience needed for a just comparison. It is
perhaps impossible for a person living unhappily with a flush toilet to imagine a
person living happily without one."
