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.

    It’s a nice game when you’re in need for a break. It had me find out that my college now has a website of their own, and I found out that they dedicated space to everyone except my old school rock band.
    I used to come up with really weird names to check…there are people out there who list strange-name domains that are still for sale. I wonder when, in their Veer cubicle *oops!*, they find time to scout out that now 😉

    when I saw the doggie pic below I thought it was created using the (for lack of a better term) “dooce effect” 🙂 It’s a nice, warm and fuzzy photo treatment.

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

    oooh I like that picture…

I'm not the most playful mom on the block. You wouldn't know it by my irrationally exuberant response to dogs in the neighborhood. They literally barrel toward me with excitement when they see me (or maybe I barrel toward them?) Two of my favorites, Rupee and Oso,...
