Sing. Dance. Jump in puddles.

This visual assignment for ds106 was to pick a bad photo, apply a vintage effect and write something in helvetica. Here’s mine:

Sing. Dance. Jump in puddles.

I’m not really sure what constitutes ‘bad’ in this context. The photo I chose doesn’t look too bad now that I’ve applied a B & W Effect (setting 9) in iPhoto.

I added some text using the Helvetica Neue font in Open Office Draw. The message “Sing. Dance. Jump in puddles.” contrasts the bleak imagery.

I cropped the image using Preview, leaving a thin white border around the image.

It doesn’t look too bad!
