To those who are asking about todays post picture: Carpetbagger. It is an Adobe Photoshop image. I took a photo of the shaggy, off white carpet in the guest room. I took a photo of Zoey sleeping. The two photos were merged (overlay) with one another. They were not desaturated (to convert to black and white) completely, but were about 75% desaturated of any color. They were softened, blurred ... and well, as best I recall, I probably used a half-dozen other photoshop tools ~ brushes and filters ~ until I had created the image that was in my minds eye. Most often when finished with an image ~ I have no idea "how I did it".
