Thanks Frank. It was fun, but I think I have more to do. Do we ever get finished with an image?

This week's prompt was : Busy Street

There are no busy streets here, and in fact there is only one street, with a vehicle passing by only on occasion. On certain nights a small cafe is open and serves catfish. So, there are a few more vehicles than usual on those nights. I took a picture of that.

This week's theme is "Busting Out". I have no idea what that means, but my blueberries, the first of the season, seem like they fit.
Pretty simple image due to constraints of ailing computer. I thought for a while I would be unable to retrieve my photos from 2016- present, but finally found a way to extricate them from the backup and get them onto a different drive.

Now headed to Apple store to see what they can tell me about the poor addled computer, which has crashed over 100 times the past week. I finally isolated a couple of triggers: Adobe Updater ap and the external drive where my photos are stored. I don't know whether the crashes broke the drive or the drive caused the crashes but it is deemed dead by the utilities I've used to check it. The computer still lives, but is sick.

I am sure glad I got this ancient laptop working fairly well, or I'd have no computer at all, but I can't access my photo library, and can't use the fun programs and textures I have on the main computer. I can use Photoshop and LRCC but can't load up a bunch of other stuff. Frustrating.

Once I get the computer working properly, I will go to war with Adobe, whose dreadful tech support has brought me to the brink of insanity.

I am being forced into a different realm with no access to my photo library or my tools. I don't know how this will end up.

Tomorrow I should hear back from the deep testing they are doing, and will know whether I'm dealing with software trouble (fixable) or hardware trouble (may not be worth it since the machine is 7 years old).

This week's topic is dance. I shot this other Soccer Little Sister image at the soccer field and played with it while my computer was gone, and I had my limited editing tools, which did include some access to layers, so I moved her to another scene.

Then when I got my computer back, for fun of it, and for extraction practice and remembering Photoshop, I played with an old image from a Native American dance event.
