when i was in chicago a few weeks ago, i talked to some strangers outside our coffee shop.
it's just what i do. all the time. no matter where i am.
anyhow, they let me take their photos. they always do. they always say yes.
this guy was a james dean wannabe.
i think he pulls it off quite well.
you can see that i couldn't stop playing with his photo.
i wanted it to look old. aged. vintage.
anything from the past. days gone by.
this is the original photo.
i found his freckles and blemishes to be distracting, so i got rid of those immediately
and then softened his face just a bit.
i had to age her photo too (obviously i was in a true vintage mood)
and no matter what i did, her eyes that kept grabbing me. in a good way.
here's her original photo. i love that she's so midwest.
anyhow. in case you wondered what i did for an hour last night, while we debated on what to eat for dinner. well this my friends is it. i know. control yourselves over how exciting my life is.
