I wanted to show some of the things I’ve been playing around with in photoshop, turning into this months obsession. Both are an original shot taken by me in my backyard this past summer. What a few filters and adjustments can do is beyond me, turns the garden behind my garage into something mysterious, and I feel like it belongs in a scene in Alice in Wonderland.

It never works, though—in part, I suspect, because I’ve never learned the proper methods.
The big lesson of wake-up science is that one person’s perfect morning is another person’s hell. (Lady Gaga, for instance, has said that she does five minutes of meditation every morning. If I tried that, I’d be snoozing by minute two.)
