Project 313 – Post No. 233

*** Caution: If flashing stuff bothers you, don’t scroll to the bottom. ***

I failed to mark our passing into the last month of the year. Oh, well . . . to make up for it, I give you a post from December 2012 (HERE). It’s one of the first times I played with Topaz Suite. They have so much more to offer today, six years later. 

In case people don’t realize it, every photo shown in Project 313 gets processed through Topaz Studio to add the frame. But, the photos usually get processed through one or more other Plugins before the frame is added. Anyway, this being Sunday, I’ll keep it short. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 233

I thought this was a neat treatment of this classic car feature. 

He might like to say it, but he would be disappointed to read the current administration did away with the fiduciary rule.

You know, the rule that would have required financial advisors to actually work on your behalf. Why did they get rid of it? Because it threatened to diminish the amount of money brokers and advisers get from misleading their customers. They didn’t say that in so many words . . . they said it would hamper the broker’s ability to properly advise the mark . . . er . . . customer. 

I still hold to telling people like it is; this is . . . Spinning Hidden Faces and Grape Juice Glasses Spinner at Night.

Spinning Hidden Faces and Grape Juice Glasses Spinner at Night

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    Your linked post of Dec. 2012 was the promise of many good Topaz things to come! And they did and do! Lucky us!


  2. PHOTO: I like that treatment, too. It looks wing-like and I see motion.
    CARTOON: Love Weederman’s expression!
    DOODLE: I love when the doodle spinners spin! Cool and colorful, too!
    HUGS!!! :-)

      Yes, it does look like something flying; specifically, an alien spaceship. I’m hoping it’s the one that’s coming to pick me up.

      Perhaps Weederman is also a fiduciary.

      There will be a few more spinners but then I’ll get to doing some actual drawing (maybe). Perhaps, I’ll get into abstract design as that doesn’t need any artistic training.

      Thanks, Carolyn, and I hope you had a nice weekend. They fly by so fast.

    Beautiful edit of the classic car’s, but I felt giddy the mantra spinning. :D

      Thank you, macquie . . . and you reminded me I didn’t have my “spinning” warning up. I’ll go fix it right after this.

        You re welcome Emilio, but it must be just me felt so…. :-)

        To be clear, there is a difference between “giddy” (having a sensation of whirling and a tendency to fall or stagger; dizzy) and “giddy” (make (someone) feel excited to the point of disorientation).

        One is the result of being happy. The other is someone not feeling all that well. And, yes, they are the same word.
