The MacBook Pro

This week I am going to get my new computer. It's coming by next Monday and I am very excited about it! I ordered it online because every time that I walk in to the Apple Stores in Manhattan I feel like I am going to have an anxiety attack. There are always so many people in there. Even though they have one sales associate for every other person, it's still too much. I'm getting the 15 inch, glossy screen and I cannot wait to see what I can churn out with it.

Because I haven't been able to use Photoshop on my soon-to-be defunct PC, I tried processing my images on Flickr. It's not ideal but I'm content with the results. You can find the before and afters below.

On a different note, I'm getting ready for the show in Buenos Aires this July and I was able to find a printer on 13th Street who is going to make the postcards for me. I'm also thinking of doing a catalogue of my work (about 20 to 30 pages) for the show. This place can do it too. It's located on 13th Street between 5th and University and they are very reasonably priced. I find it by coincidence when I was coming out of the New York Health and Racquet Club right across the street. I've walked down that block a million times but I usually turn down University rather than towards 5th Avenue. If you have printing needs, then I would check it out.

These are great. Did you use Picnik in Flickr for the processing? I cannot believe the deep red color of those horses. I love the last photo in particular.

yes, I used Picnik...it's not ideal but it does the most basic jobs.
