sharp dressed man

As ZZ Top told me long ago,
"...every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.."

Well I've been cleaned up a few times in my life, but honestly I prefer T-shirts.

With today's digital picture technology anyone can be a sharp dressed man in a photo anyway.

Ok, so you know when look at those vacation pictures and there's LESS than a sharp dressed tourist in the background. Well now you can fix that.
Remove Tourists from Travel Photos

why would you want to modify the picture that much?

I heard a story that some image enhancement shops get requests to fix vacation pictures.

Here's a photo from a trip that I would NOT want to remove the extras.

Hey most of my family fails in just removing the zombie red eyes. So red eye removal, maybe some cropping OK, but completely taking thing out or putting them in the picture?

For me vacation pictures are memories. I don't want fake memories.

So as you may have noticed in this post and others. I like play around with pictures for fun but not to enhance my vacation.

Oh, don't remember that ZZ Top song ?
here's a refresher

I thought the USSR invented that whole removing people from pictures and history thing.

@unknown mami - not really sure I follow you, but I think the soviets had ways of making the undesirables disappear for a long long time. Like cold Siberian vacations.

How much do I love that song? THIS MUCH. You had me rocking at clean shoes.

Bill Lisleman said...

@jennymac - yes the guitar riffs are great. thanks for dropping off a comment.

You have great taste in music!

I'm with you on the altering of memories... as long as I'm not in the pic looking a mess :-)

Remove tourists from photos?

Hell no photographing tourists is one of my 'pet' projects ...

Here in Nam we have gangs of tourists pointing their lenses at us locals so I decided to turn the tables on them - I go out of my way to photograph tourists ... and i try to make sure they see me taking their pics ... sometimes they look kind of puzzled, sometimes nervous ...

Great music video

@JJ - thanks - I believe I have an eclectic taste of music. Rock, blues, old standards, A Cappella, punk, acoustic guitar, some country, folk

@onestonedcrow - welcome - when I first read Nam, I immediately thought of Vietnam. After going to your blog I corrected myself - Nambia. Interesting idea, I'm looking forward to see some of those pics. I'll plan to post some of your funny pics too. thanks

Mr daughter took tons of photos of strangers walking down the beach this year. The tourists are her favorite part!

Bill Lisleman said...

@debbie - yes I agree the odd picture is often the best. I guess you might get in some trouble if you publish pictures of strangers. I really don't know the legalities.
