Enhance!

Bit of a dull photo on a dull day in New Orleans, but there is a marked bump in clarity.This auto-enhance could be really neat, once it gets going and starts working its magic automatically. 

Though I'm realizing now that folks can't see the un-enhanced version. Err... trust me, the original is darker and stuff.

"I didn't understand the details, but I understood what their existence meant, what it meant that certain things could even be possible... What it meant that the laws of reality are potentially fluid (!), or that dimensions could be overlapping, or intersecting, or that in general far more things out to be pluralized and uniformly accompanied by an asterisk."

"The concept of this gutsy ‘Naval Strength’ gin evolved for good reason. Alcohol and gun powder were originally stored together under lock and key to avoid the potential for the crew getting drunk and having easy access to firearms. This dual storage, however, posed a serious risk, that being if standard-proof alcohol leaked on the gun powder, the powder would fail to ignite. The industrious creation of a 100 proof gin allowed for spillage on the powder without deleterious effects because it contained more alcohol than water."

Song of the day (as of 12:30pm).


We the American working population
Hate the fact that eight hours a day
Is wasted on chasing the dream of someone that isn't us
And we may not hate our jobs,
But we hate jobs in general
That don't have to do with fighting our own causes.
We the American working population
Hate the nine-to-five day-in/day-out
When we'd rather be supporting ourselves
By being paid to perfect the pasttimes
That we have harbored based solely on the fact
That it makes us smile if it sounds dope.

Loving the new layout, but I'm mostly here to dump photos. I imagine the auto-enhance feature will take some time to sift through my stash though.

Just did a test run with a random batch of pics from Lightroom, and it looks like I need to auto enhance manually at the moment (the global auto enhance setting is on, I checked). The results are... well, they're a bit brighter. But the original pics weren't exactly fundamentally flawed to begin with, I guess.

Appropriate I think, on account of everyone occupying everything everywhere.
