Bored to Productivity

There is a lot going on in my life right now. Well, not a lot, more like one big energy consuming thing. So I have been trying to clear my head so that I can think more clearly. Part of that involved spending a weekend alone. I know I watch too much tv, so I struggled to find things to fill my Sunday that were not television related. Eventually I found myself looking up how to do effects in Photoshop. (See if I am left alone and pushed to the point of absolute boredom, I become productive. Not sure why I can't just sit down and do something constructive in the first place, but whatever, call it a process.) For most of my friends what I am going to paste below is likely one of the most simple things you can do to make an image more interesting... BUT I just learned it and I think it's cool. Behold a product of my boredom:

First, did you increase the saturation on the photo or something more complicated? I do like the difference.

Second, in your profile you don't sound bored at all.

Third--and this is what attracted me to your blog--I really like your post about boredom and how it's productive but you have to go through a bit of discomfort to get the productive part.I like your degree of analysis. Cool.

Fourth, may I use this on my blog about boredom and in my book. If so, how would you like to be identified? See

Awesome. See... I knew you had it in you to bring it back out. I think we should do a project together. You send me a pic of you, and I'll photoshop it into a pic of us, or I dunno... something. Thoughts? <3
