A Fun Little Experiment
Well, I did something with the pictures that I have here today. Maybe it's not exactly impressive, but I thought it was kind of fun. I recently found a nice little app in the Windows 8 store called TouchRetouch that helps you retouch your photos a bit. I won't give you a link because I know most of you don't have Windows 8. And if you do, you know it's easy to find.
See that tree in the picture above? I made it completely disappear with that fun little app. The fun part is that it was pretty simple. I just drew around the tree and then clicked a button and the tree went away. It's a simple little thing, but you never know what you might be able to use something like that for.
But my point with this blog post is that experimentation can be fun. I experimented when I took the original picture. I thought the results were okay. And I experimented when I used the little app from the Windows store. And I guess writing this blog for these past several years has also been a fun experiment. I never knew how any of it would turn out. That's the fun.
I love to experiment. I go out and explore nature and take the most interesting pictures I can. I build my own computers. I always have the very newest operating system on them. I also have electronic parts and strange gadgets all around my house. Some of them turn out to be highly useful, and others not so much. That's the breaks when you try out new things. Even the failures are fun.
Okay, that's enough of this. It was just the thing I felt like talking about this time. Next time it could be birds, my robotic vacuum cleaner, or my dog. Who knows? I don't. I'll talk to you later.
