In yesterday’s post, taken yesterday morning, I was commenting on how manipulative HDR photos could be. Later in the day, I was taking a few photos of some fancy gourds my wife bought at the farmers’ market on Saturday and I realized that these gourds must be the product of manipulation, too.
I think some geneticist somewhere sprinkled his/her magic mutation powder on regular gourd seeds to see what would happen. And this green, white and yellow thing is one of the products.
I think that software manipulation of photos is much less insidious. Just imagine what would happen if the geneticist dusted you or your children with his/her special powder. . .
(PS: My friend, Jim, inspired this post because of a comment he made on my Facebook page. Thanks, Jim.)
