My Corner Office

Post by minniev » Wed Jun 06, 2018 7:49 pm

Here's my "office" in my new/old house, the southwest corner of the living room with an old gateleg table for a desk, a spot for my ipad and its keyboard, and a bamboo basket to hold the camera, cards, cords and such as that. I took this at sunset when I saw the breeze lifting that curtain and I wanted to hold the moment. I processed it in my ultra slim PP routine - LRCC plus a few plugins like snapseed and one that does textures. In your view does the texture add or detract, and can such simple scenes have interest to anyone besides me? Now that I'm home, I can do more with PS, so welcome suggestions.

I'm with Frank; I'm there. Splendid. Intimate. Peaceful. Inviting. Very well done. Matt

I can feel the breeze and a good book sitting in that chair.

Thanks Frank. This old house carries such a set of memories and emotions, I'm enjoying trying to capture some of it in pictures.

Thanks Matt. That's the way I feel it, so I'm glad it comes across.

Thanks, Piet, there was a fine breeze and there's two good books just out of sight on the right. I usually keep at least two going: Chris Hayes's Colony In A Nation and Gene Stratton Porter's Song of The Cardinal (a romance between two redbirds, written in 1915).

Ha! I think your reading is more serious than mine, I steal my wife's Nora Robert's books.

I’m pretty sure you’d like Song of the Cardinal, it’s a treasure. It’s so old you can download it free.
