IMAGE OF THE DAY: Wall

(54k)

Okay, here is “Random Chick” #2. I was mostly playing around with tinting and other goofy Photoshop tricks this time.

The locale is kinda sorta the Twin Peaks tourist trap, which is a quick jaunt from my house on Panorama Dr. in San Francisco. That’s supposed to be Sutro tower looming in the background, much as it always does around here. The perspective and placement is all wrong, but she’s probably looking straight at Market Street, which cuts through the center of downtown with its blinding array of streeet lights.

I wandered up to Twin Peaks tonight and spent about an hour vegging at the view of San Francisco and the surrounding area. It sometimes still blows my mind that I actually live in “the city” after all these years. It’s a weird paradoxical feeling, since you can only feel so special for living in a big city, being surrounded as you are by millions of other people who all live there too. But it’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m gonna enjoy it while I can.

    Actually, she looks like an older Harry Potter with 70′s hair…

    Daniel: Heh. I was going to say she looks a bit like Waldo (Of “Where’s Waldo” fame) without the goofy hat!

    I like it.

    I went to a party this weekend in Berkeley. There were a bunch of City-dwellers present. Their minds were a bit blown.

    After that experience, I don’t think I want to live in The City. Seems it can lead to a loss of perspective.

    Josh: YOU look a bit like Waldo.

    When are we going to see a self-portrait?

    Kathleen: You have just solved my “What the hell am I going to be for Halloween!?” costume dilemma!

    (Not that it hasn’t been done to death already!)

    OK, I need to go and check Waldo. Yea, everyone should post their self portraits, and for those of us who cannot draw, pics.

    Daniel: You are out of your mind, as usual.

    Besides, I already did. HA!
