I did something today that I haven’t done in a long time. Too long probably. I took a lot of really simple photographs. I looked for color and texture and nothing more. It became a game to see how many different hues I could find in Hue. I love how across Vietnam you can almost tell a building’s age by the number of coats of paint it has on its sides. Like rings on a tree. They peel back and expose years and years. Mold grows. Vines grow. Lazy brush strokes become a kind of art in their own right. I stopped and looked around and it was like living in a rainbow. And it was nice.

Interesting! May I know how you created that …tych, which program you used, I mean…
Jules, I’m taking it to a whole nother level. I’m trying to see just how big of a tych the internet can handle. So if networks crash in a few days you’ll know why.
Gil, I made it in manually in Photoshop. I’m sure there’s an easier way, but I’m not so technologically advanced. Glad you like it.
Thank you for your quick reply. I do use myself Photoshop, but I have never experienced it with so many images…
