New Logo!


So, after a really good thanksgiving dinner, I decided to make a new logo for my blog. So, first thing I did was searched for a picture that gave me a good idea... I came up with this picture of Evelyn standing on the peir near Alki... I took the strip of the skyline and decided that would be a good backdrop...

So, I opened up GIMP, and tried applying some gradients... then inverting the colors... removing the sky... a whole bunch of stuff... then I just ran an edge detection filter. I thought it was great! just the siloette of the city would be just what I wanted...

Then I decided that I didn't like the Neon edge detection... so my final decision was to go with the image that is at the top of the blog. Then, I just opened my old logo as a layer... it just so happened that the resolution of my old logo was really close to what I wanted for this one... bam!

Now I have a new logo... but I might change it to a different view of the city. I was thinking about getting a good picture of the city from Gasworks park.

However, that's all for now...

BTW, Evelyn did a fantastic job with the turkey. It was so good that I only think I'll have leftovers for a week!


So, hope your holliday was awesome, I know mine was!

Later,

P.S. I saw dad reading my blog...
