Early morning low lying clouds looked a little like mountains in the distance.

While I’ve been recovering from my wrist surgery, I haven’t gotten to all the normal places.  Today my sweet mama drove me here.  Hello, old friend.

365 Project: January 6, 2016

In case you don’t already know this about me, I’m super competitive.  I don’t like being beaten by anyone or anything.  Mind you, it happens, and I know how to be a good sport about it, but I don’t like it.

There always seem to be new things to overcome.  I’m working on (at least) 2 of those right now and today’s photo combines them.  I’m 8 weeks post wrist surgery and the occupational therapy is kicking my butt.  I’m improving, but it is hard.work. As much as it depends on me, I’m not going to let this injury beat me.

I took the picture of all my therapy homework tools because I’m looking forward to the day that I won’t need them anymore.  But, as I grow/heal in different ways I always like to be able to look back where I came from.

The second thing that I am determined not to be have beat me is the cloning tool on my photo software (Lightroom 5).  So while this would have been the perfect opportunity to show off my ginormous bottle of Texas Pete and my Wonder Woman tumbler in the background, I decided to try to clone out the background and get a handle on this tool.

A YouTube video and quite a bit of time later, I have a lovely portrait of my OT tools. ;)  The cloning isn’t perfect, I know.  I can still see a few areas where I could improve, but I’m pleased that I stuck with it and did it the best I could for where I am now.

Bonus craziness…While in the cloning process…I’m not even sure how this happened, but it looked like some kind of  80s/90s graphic that would have been used in the opening credits of Saved by the Bell.
