The tie in to bike? All my pictures are of bikes or bike trips, so naturally that is what I’m practicing on. I loaded a set of my own pictures onto a flash drive, and have been using them instead of the stock photos. Today I had the luxury of time to sit and work on some pictures and techniques. I did not set out with any objective in mind, but ideas came to me as I worked on a pen filter graphic of my GT. This led to me spending a couple of hours creating a new header for my blog. I’m very happy with the results and learned several new techniques on way. It was a perfect way to spend a cold November day!
