Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Action Wedding!
September 23, 2017
Two friends of mine, Lena and Piers, got married a month ago. They needed
to make it legal and so had a judge do the actual legal-in-New-York-state
marriage a little over a week ago. I brought my camera and took some
pictures. It was outside, next to the closed bridge by the Ithaca
courthouse. I figured it'd be easy to use Photoshop to modify the sign and
make something funny.
So I did.
And it was easy. "Bridge" becomes "Bride"
quite easily. Almost...too easily. And Lena and Piers' poses were fun.
I felt I should do more than just delete one letter of the alphabet.
And so I did.
Also here's a full-size
version of this image and one without the zapping where you can more
easily read the bride closed
sign. In the full sized version, it's easier to see things like Piers'
eyes, and the glow of the blue light from the orb on Lena's right
arm and side of her face. Also, here's the
original version of the picture.
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background
image, just click on the image.
