"Blue Polaroid"


I've been carrying my camera everywhere lately, what with this beautiful weather and vibrant civic events like Better Block BR and the Baton Rouge Blues Festival and even a Civil Rights Forum where John Seigenthaler told us that some bookies helped finance the Freedom Riders. Each time I forgot my memory card in the little slot on the side of my computer at work.

And today I remember it and fail to realize the camera is set on some "Blue Polaroid" setting when I remember the card and am feeling arty on my walk home. I did what I can in PhotoShop, turning my world into vintage icing.

I'm doing this in lieu of discussing Hour of the WolfBergman's sole horror movie. Despite watching it roughly twice in a couple of spurts, I still don't know what happened. Did Max Von Sydow shook Liv Ullmann and make her a ghost? Did the old lady turn into his spurned lover? The bookies financing the civil rights movement makes much more sense. I liked it but didn't understand it. Like with PhotoShop, it's the best I can do.
