Unplugged rather than upgraded


Sometimes taking pictures doesn’t go quite to plan. I got the original of this one to final edit after a couple of hours’ work to realise I missed an error that no editing magic could fix.

Back to the drawing board.

I then upgraded to the new version of Firestorm and had the black screen of death, the pink screen of death and some thinking time to read the jira entries while downloading 180 megabytes of updated graphics drivers.

Then I repeated the process as nothing worked and followed different recommendation for my laptop and downloaded another 180 megabytes of drivers. I have SL but now my images are too soft in focus (depth of field is off to no avail) and the new video drivers have made my screen blurry in places on the laptop.

I’ll try again another day when I have time. I can see an upside in that I somehow have shadows now and there’s a bazillion more windlight settings to play with!

I was checking out wuwaichun’s flickr stream for some new places to visit and Cica Ghost’s Rust installation caught my eye.

It’s a little bit corroded cogs and fences, a little bit of steampunk and a little bit of whimsical animals to bring rusted, ageing elements alive with clever lighting and movement. It’s an inspiring place to visit.
