A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!

It was raining this morning and wet with opportunity. The Colorist never misses a chance for visual inhalation of color. I wonder what an appropriate term might be? Performing an ocular inspection perceptible by the sense of sight? Inhaling the property by which vision can distinguish between objects that are similar or identical in size and shape? And diluted by the rain is it an inhalation of hue, shade, tint or tone?
