these colours you see were picked in advance, by some careful hand, with an absolute concept of beauty
it would be nice if i could manipulate life as easily as images in photoshop. brighten things up, make the colours more vivid, clone out the messy shit. take this photo as a convenient example. i remember that i wasn't feeling all that great at the time, i was still hanging onto my cold and felt pretty low in general. i hadn't taken any photos for a while so i forced myself to go out and shoot for half an hour. this photo came out of my camera reflecting my mood, dull, flat and lacking in colour. but there was still something inside and by adjusting the contrast, vibrance and colour balance it came back to life. if there's a happiness, contentment or serenity slider then it definitely isn't as simple to control.
