Fun Picture Trick

Last Sunday, while in Mephis on Beale Street I had a random thought: How fun would it be to have a picture of everyone looking down while the sky appeared behind us!?

And then it hit me.

Self: Kate, does your camera have a timer?
Kate: Yeah, why?

Then we gathered in a huddle and placed the camera on the ground.
The above picture was our first attempt.

Micah (to the left, sporting the ever so classy "PISS" shirt) doctored the photo a bit using Photoshop. He took the original color photo and laid a black and white copy on top. He then erased portions of the copied black and white to reveal the blue sky of the original. I believe it took him about 30 seconds.

Clockwise from Micah: Russ, Amanda, Jeff, Me (+800 chins), January, Kate, and Mitch.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
