look ma, no hands

thats a rooftop at the cloisters
 up in fort tryon park
 a subway and bus ride
 from the uws

 took this
 the first time
 with my friend mary

  many of you
 have asked after her
sent her well wishes
she is indeed
 on the mend
 back at work

   i had nothing prepared here 
to share
 last evening
 (really right now, but not the right now you are in right now)
 i sat with lisa's excellent instructions
 a photo that needed nothing
  i like it 
i added
 a texture
 lisa shared with me 
called brest 

i messed up
 'brushed' away
too much
 i added pixel layer
 cloned it back!

 - look ma, no hands -

i didnt cry once!

have you fought photoshop and won?
