I May Be Starting on a New Kick, Now… Yeah, Again.

Photo from late 1800s showing Main St Thessalon Ontario CAnada

This old photo of my hometown circa somewhere in the late 1800s has my gears turning. Now, I want to animate this photo. Years ago, I was heavy into Flash animation, so that’s now gone all obsolete and everything, but I think I’ve figured out another way. And that way will be Photoshop because of course, it will. I played around with onion-skinning for animation when I bought my Photoshop suite or whatever it used to be called and I feel a strong need to test it out again…

Wouldn’t this photo be so much cooler as an animated, interactive webpage? Yes, I think so, too.

I will keep you posted.

I’m very grateful Ky came home (almost a year ago, holy shit!), or I wouldn’t get fresh and healthy food just handed to me every day, for no reason, other than she was making it anyway. Having meals made for me leaves me with more time to grow weed, so yeah, I’m grateful. 🤣

Two pot plants growing in pots in a greenhouse.
My two happy, young pot plants!
As promised, the other day, enjoy this pic (or laugh at it, if you’re a better pot farmer than I) of my two very legal marijuana plants growing in my itsy-bitsy greenhouse. They seem to be doing alright, considering I’m treating them like houseplants that I don’t really know how to raise…
