I'm Looking For a Hard Headed Woman

"And if I find that hard headed woman, I know (I know) my life will be blessed (yes.. yes)" - Cat Stevens

Stumbled upon this hobo guy with his girl friend while sauntering the street of Old Town Santa Barbara in 2009. Back then, I was totally into Blurism as a style of art. To get that Impressionistic look, I used the Lensbaby here. I've used that camera lens exclusively between 2009 and 2010.

Once in a while, I'll return to this photo and right away the Cat Stevens song would fill my soul. The man does kind of remind me of Cat Stevens -- that's before he converted to Islam and became Yusuf Islam.

Techie Notes (you may skip this paragraph if techie stuff bores you): This image is a reprocessed version. Just recently I picked up a copy of Scott Kelby's the Adobe Photoshop CS5 book and have tried some of his techniques on my older photos. The book is good stuff and there is enough to glean to improve one's photos.  (I don't make money off his book but in case you know somebody who's in market for these kind of materials I highly recommend it.)

Happy Thursday.
