Woman’s Walk 2017

Woman’s Walk 2017

Yesterday, I joined 4 fabulous women for the woman’s walk in Downtown Los Angeles. It was an amazing day! There were 750,000 men, women and children walking for equal rights, dignity and respect for all people. We parked in NoHo and got onto the Red Line subway. The station was jammed with people. It took us 1 and a half hours to be able to get onto a subway train. We were packed like sardines, it was hot because when we left our house is was in the 40’s. Everyone was so calm and cool, we all had a great time. The signs were amazing, people were so creative and clever, I was totally engrossed in the events of the day.  

There were not incidents and no arrests in LA yesterday! I’ve never been prouder to be an Angeleno.

Here are few of the photos, mostly from our wait in the Subway Station. I’ll post more tomorrow.

Photoshop’s New Masking Tool

Photoshop Masking ToolIf you haven’t upgraded to the newest Photoshop Creative Suite 2015.5 (June 2016) version, you’re missing out on a great new masking tool it has to offer. You know how tedious and time consuming it is to outline an image to drop out the background in your photo, well Adobe Photoshop has just taken that job and simplified it tremendously. They’ve created a new workspace similar to the filter workspace with some powerful tools and adjustments for you to outline or mask out anything with a great deal of precision. Even hair! You know how difficult that is! Here’s a link to the video with directions on how to use the new tool.

I have been very impressed with the quality of tools I’ve used. I highly recommend Creative Market for any materials you might need to complete a project or to find inspiration.
