the black lotus

a bit of post processing here, separating the lotus to another layer with a vector mask and desaturating the remainder. it was a pretty drab day and the daffodils in the back, i can’t lie, were being attention whores with their bright yellow petals. had to be done.

fire, the manhattan, victoria

well the 16th floor of our building caught on fire tonight, roughly about an hour ago, clearing a whole bunch of yuppies and people with those weird minidogs out on to the street in front of the building. my ears are still ringing from the fire alarm. as you can see, many decided to leave their lights on for the event. that orange reddy colored window that looks like it’s got fire inside has, you guessed it, fire inside.
