Many of you know that I’ve been away since my computer crashed and burned recently, figuratively speaking. Now I’m very close to completing my move into my new computer. Maybe it’s because football season is just around the corner, but as I was processing this week’s images, I was reminded of a quote from the legendary former University of Alabama’s coach, Paul “Bear” Bryant. During one of his weekly TV programs, Bryant once said while watching one of his players out run an opposing defense “There is no substitute for speed.” His quote is just as true today as it was during the 70’s when he made it. However, the same is true about computers.
I certainly didn’t purchase a top of the line machine, but I was amazed at the increased speed that it has. I’ve always enjoyed processing my images, but speed, as in sports, really makes it more fun.
Sunday afternoon I found a few moments to stop by Aldridge’s Gardens. Aldridge’s is a beautiful place to visit. I’m planning to return again in the the near future.
I processed these images using Light Room 3, Nik Plugins, Photoshop Elements 9, Fractalius, and Snap Art 3.
