It Ran When I Parked It!

One of the better samples from a long running series I keep swearing I’m going to create called “It Ran When I Parked It.”

We saw this abandoned late-40s GMC truck in a field near Taos, New Mexico in August of 2006.  There’s a good story about why we were in Taos that summer.  It has something to do with the unfinished biography of T. Townsend Brown… an important meeting that turned into an ambush / gangbang / fiasco.  I probably should have taken the hint and walked away from the project then but… nooooo…..

At least I got a cool photo out of the experience.  The color treatment was devised as part of a print-making class at Nashville State Community.   Need to make more like this…

And You Think Photoshop Is Deceptive?

Check this out:

 

I can’t tell from the YouTube page what the software is, but it’s the most impressive portrait (and video?) retouching software I’ve seen yet.

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 2.28.27 PMWait a second… maybe I’m the one being deceived here.

In mean, I can’t even tell for sure if this is software… maybe it’s just a music video for a band called “Boggie” and this is their song “Parfum.”  Maybe the vocalist is singing to us (in a language I don’t recognize) about the evils of photo-retouching.

For once, Google wasn’t much help.

I know… I’ll go check The Onion…

If annybody else who knows the secret… post a comment, please.

Update 140126: I know the answer now. Popular Photo has disclosed that the video is, indeed, a music video for a Hungarian pop singer named Boggie.  So me – and the friend who sent me the link in the first place, among the the fools.

You would think that if such software actually exists, I of all people would know about it by now.
