Not-Quite-Wordless Black&White Not-Quite-Wednesday: I love Summer Lawn Sales!
summary: Lawn Sale Brotform for just $1; entry for Black and White Wordless Not-Wednesday; experimenting with sepia and black & white on a colour image. Photos taken on FujiFilm S3100 digital camera. Then using Irfanview, I desaturated by 100% to remove the colour, then upped the contrast and added -1R, 1G and 3B. To create the sepia version, I altered the colour again by adding 20R, 5G and -10B

not-quite-wordless b&w not-Wednesday: peeza pieey
summary: Experiments with Irfanview with 2013 pizza; link to CBC Digital Archives video of Mrs. Brady's 1957 peeza pieey recipe: it's grand. It turns out that the "nippy cheese" she calls for is aged cheddar. She also says you can use parmeesian if you want; I find Mrs. Brady's suggestion to add blood sausage particularly disturbing. (Pizza Photos taken on FujiFilm S3100 digital camera. Then using Irfanview, I upped the contrast on the b&w image and added 2G and 10B. Then to create the sepia version, altered the colour again by adding 25R, 7G and -15B)
