When I'm not working on rugs, this is my art therapy- and I've needed it- I've been a lot sicker a lot longer than I've realized

These first are what's left of the bizarre flowers and cold cuts tableau shown in an earlier video.
On top is the original, below is my bit of fun with filters

Ultimately I'll put these together into a slide show of scenes of and views from Chicago alleys.

This is a little girl's shoe I saw in the same alley- I shot a video panning from it up and down the alley.

This is the "Dr. Seuss" tree from Snark's alley. (You ever seen this Snark? Its down on the Glenlake end.) Top is the original, below one I ran through a filter. I think I may have to reshoot this picture, maybe with a different camera. The dark tree blends in too much with the dark background. Of course, I shot video of this as well.

So... this is the art therapy I've done today... not too much. I'm a lot sicker than I'd realized... having had a day without massive dehydration has helped me realize how sick I've been for how very long. Its like I've had stomach flu for... 2 or 3 months!

No wonder I've not gothed up much until last night (Good to see you Snark and Dean)... and last night was really just half way. When all your energy goes into your crappy body, fashion and funk go by the wayside.

Glad you are feeling better! And yes, I DO recognize the tree! LOL.

Well, not quite so quick... today was rough. Went to class, but had to come home, and crashed for about 8 hours when I did so.

Took several more pix of the tree to try to get a better background today.
