I dont personally like eating pears/avocado but I do have a faint memory of liking it with a bun at a single point in time.

written by owen, published 2021-May-13, comment

I play more Ludo now than I have ever played in my life. But the game itself takes too long to finish.

The filter life

written by owen, published 2021-Apr-02, comment

I have never been a fan of filters. Even with their popularity on social media and television. Creating a fake but appealing view of reality is not my bag of chips. I do see the appeal which is why I have gone down a rabbit hole of high contrast black and white. But I have been experimenting with the possibilites. I do come back to reality and shoot in colour from time to time.

Double exposure

written by owen, published 2020-Dec-19, comment

To switch things up a bit here are some double exposures I took at various points. I discovered this feature on the camera one day during lunch. It basically allows you to take 2 or more pictures and combine them into one final picture using a additive/subtractive blend mode. As if you have a film camera and you reshoot picture over pictures you already took. It is really useful in select situations which I am still discovering.

Clouds are one of those situations mostly because the flat blue sky makes for easy blending.  You want to have a clear day with nice big clouds

Merging faces works well in black and white.  Not so easy in colour as you will see below.

Shadows are also doable but harder because of course colours.  I will kick my black and white spiral evenutally.

Using parking lines to create impossible pictures is also easy to pull off with this feature.
