Mundus vult decipi
This weeks Phaiga brought to you by way of two of my co-Inspirators, jeremy and mimsy.
Have a Querc-ky Phriday!
Such an interesting photo JCC.
Thank you Mumsy — this one’s all about the Lensbaby…
A lovely poem. So simple yet so true.
Thank you — yes, I always thought it was strange that oak trees still have dead leave on them as the new ones come in spring, as if they don’t want to let go.
Awesome. Thank you!
thanks j — 🙂
🙂 Lovely colors in the picture!
Thank you mimsy — funny thing is I’m color-blind so I honestly don’t know quite how this looks to anyone else. It is a split-tone setting I came up with in Lightroom…people seem to like it and it really seems to work with wintery images. Same setting I used in this set , though I think those were B&W first…horrible memory…terrible about keeping track.
🙂 Do you see hues though? even if they aren’t the same as the rest of us do? or completely to grey tone? I love to play in Lightroom…I’m learning to love B&W tonal qualities too… just did my nephew’s senior pictures for him.
A little story about this – 🙂 I teach chemistry – and when we do the flame test labs, I have to ask the kids to break the HIPPA stuff, because one year I had two boys – BOTH colorblind – and I didn’t know or ask about it because its “confidential”. They both missed almost ALL of it, and only after one said..well I’m colorblind. And the other – no way- Me too! What are the odds? 🙂
I do see hues. Relatively mild R/G , Anomalous trichromacy (deuteranomaly) probably. I tell people “Yes, I see color but you don’t want me near the color/tint controls of your TV.” if tv’s still have those…
I love the split-toning feature in LR. I went through all of the “tone-numbers” with my wife and had her tell me colors to match the numbers and then made a chart. It’s a rough approximation but it seems to work.
Those poor kids. PC BS gone overboard again! I was lucky that my mom had a color-blind father and brother so she picked up on my issues very early. Funny thing is that I felt different in a good way–unique. Seems a shame the way these things are sometimes handled these days. Hush-hush-can’t-hurt-anyone’s-delicate-feelings-can-we? rather than simple acceptance.
Another funny note: The Oxford Book of the Mind says that apparently the preferred term now is “color-deficient”!
Seriously? I’m color-blind.
🙂 my dad is color near-sighted hehe…he isn’t R/G but telling hues of black, grey, brown, navy is very difficult for him. When I was young…oh how mean I was. My mom would match up his socks for him…and my sister and I would get into his sock drawer and mismatch all his dress socks…so when he was our Sunday school teacher, we would sit and snicker… 😀
