Passing Time

One way that I have for passing on time in between the essential maintenance work on Rosie, is playing on the Internet. I have this thing at the moment for creating graphics and messing around generally with pictures. I recently came across a site that happens to host many applications including one that will let you create your own pictures and messages with a flower motif.

Here as they say is one that I did earlier.

This is the experimental site.

Quote: Chrome Experiments is a showcase for creative web experiments, the vast majority of which are built with the latest open technologies, including HTML5, Canvas, SV, and WebGL. We hope the projects on this site provide inspiration for anyone interested in experimenting creatively with the web. And we hope they show how the web has become faster, more fun, and more open – the same spirit in which we built Google Chrome.

I have been asked about how I create the little motto style graphics panels that I add to postings from time to time. I use a few different on-line tools for creating them. A web search on "Logo Creator" will bring up several on line applications that you can use.  Cool Text is a good one to use as a starter, it has many ready configured styles to choose from. There are other applications that will give you much more control and allow you to embed your own pictures into the panel.

But often a simple picture can convey much more that words alone ever can.

Here is a photograph © Ibrahim AlRabeh that one could write a thesis on and still not cover the whole subject. Simple in concept and yet very provocative in content. At the same time there is a stereotypical slant about the picture.

Politics and religion both are puported to be for the benefit of all mankind. Yet it is the athiest who lives in peace with himself and everyone else around him.
