    Default Behind the eyeball

    For something to do while in self quarantine (I'm well) and of course most of my time is spend in self quarantine, I just never called it that before. But I digress.

    I have decided to grow a beard. It has been many 30 years since I last had one and that one was dark brown.

    And I have been taking selfies to document the experiment.

    To further amuse myself, I like to process the selfies in Prisma, a fantastic set of iPhone (and Android) filters. And that's OK. But why stop there when you have Xara, the greatest program for this kind of image. I edited a copy of the photo using the FX > Polarized Grayscale to bring up the contrast. And then added this over the Prisma processed image and added a Circular transparency reversing the values to make the inside transparent and the outside opaque.

    I like it. My wife thinks I look like a criminal.

    A gentleman criminal, I'm sure.

    There seem to be more than one Prisma apps, at least for Android. Can you be more specific which one you use?

    It is telling that you like it.

    So is this how you feel that you actually look or are underneath the art, or how you would like people to perceive you; or is it just a liking of the creative art itself?

    (I think I know what I mean, although the question is jumbled!)

    TJB - It was more the act of creativity. I am not a dark person, or a particularly deep person. It just seemed like something that Xara is very good at doing, I tried it, and I liked the results.

    Looking sharp young man. Grew a beard when I went camping. I was about 25 at the time. For some reason it never got shaved off. That was almost 50 years ago.
