Weight and Stuff Report – 8 May 2012

Down a pound today, which is a good start to recovering from the weekend bloat, yay.

I had intended to walk to work this morning – it was certainly a nice enough day for it, but by the time I’d got myself together, it was a bit late to get there as early as I wanted to, so I didn’t. The weather’s been a bit indecisive today, alternating between a nice bit of sunshine and rain that was heavy enough to be irritating, though nothing like the deluges of recent weeks. I didn’t have much of a walk at lunchtime, because that was one of the time when it rained. As was the time I left work for the day. Mutter.

Today’s picture is a quick play with the Tilt & Shift blur filter in Photoshop CS6, which I installed as a trial yesterday. This is similar to the effect created with the Lensbaby, but has the advantage that you can fiddle with the focus after the event. It’s been possible to do this previously, but the new filter makes it very quick and simple. I may play with this some more…
