I felt so bad for not producing a single photo or illustration this week that I thought I had to produce a good one today. So I pimped my garden and then I pimped myself and here is the result. I'm not quite done with the color rendering... but this is a first draft at least. My photos are so big with the new camera that I keep using a feather that's too small... I think.
By the way, have all you scandinavians heard about Terje Hellesø who photoshopped his animal photography? Hah, I thought that was so low. And also really poorly photoshopped, so I kinda think that the people who gave him the "Naturephotographer of the year" award are some what dumb-balls as well. That just shows that getting an award doesn't mean you're the best! And that silly stuff about his wife not knowing anything... haa-haa... yeeah right! If you take a picture of a lynx four feet away from it - I think you're gonna tell your wife about it later! If I manage to shoot something cool I tell my boyfriend at once. Or what? Do I call him and say "Hey, I just photographed a badger in my garden!" and then photoshop a picture together? What a great relationship that would be. I'm honest with my boyfriend when I meet him at the end of the day and say "Hey I'm sorry, but the most exciting thing that happened to me today was that my cat looked really cute yawning".
But just to make things clear - this photo is photoshopped :) It would be hard otherwise to have myself in two places at once.
