Playin with photoshop

The Mission District, SF, Canon EOS

This is probably a sign that I spend way too much time futzing around on the internet, but do you ever play that game where you think of a word or a phrase and see if it has a URL?

“The fold” came to mind yesterday and I found the most beautiful site: The Fold

Anyone find anything good using this method?

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Actually, the doggie photo hasn’t been manipulated.
    He’s just a fuzzy thing.
