there are no shortcuts

I think Mr Ciganek would be satisfied to know that I still believe there are no shortcuts. When I created a couple of curves last month, I never used them again. It's not that I didn't want to save time or that I didn't want to, I just felt like it was cheating and it was one of those "shortcuts" that Ciganek warned us IB Art kids about. I tried using them, I just was really dissatisfied with how they worked with other photos I had taken. I don't know, I find comfort in knowing I spent time editing each photo individually rather than applying a curve I created to "save time". There are no shortcuts. And if there are, well, I take pride in what I do. I'd rather work a little bit harder (and longer) for a more satisfying feeling.

I went for a walk today in the park where we used to run cross country. The last photo in this set is just something to capture a memory. Last year, the parkway was closed for construction. Apparently, when they re-did the parkway, they took out this slab of pavement that we used to jump after running 200s. Well, mostly it was the kids who did long jumping in track anyways so they could clear the jump and not land in the water. I definitely didn't want to try it, but it was fun and I'm sad that they took it out. Now what are the cross country kids going to jump across?! Also, there's some odd red structure that Alex has dubbed the broken penis, but I say it looks like an incomplete goal posts. Above this entry I also have a widget of a playlist I made yesterday that I've been groovin' to. Enjoy!
