I’m delighted you decided to join me for another edition of Not-So-Wordless Wednesday!
You’re not having déjà vu, kittens and dawgs. I shared a similar picture in 2013, here. At the time I took this picture, I was recovering from intestinal surgery and not up to handling my big girl camera (Nikon D7000) and decided to go light-weight with my Canon Elph S110 point n’ shoot instead. It does a fabulous job.
This is a really cool image and I thought it would fun to monkey around (pun intended) with it in Pixelmator.
In the above image I decreased the saturation to nearly B&W leaving a hint of color in the stars and with the below image I bumped the saturation level all the way up giving it a near comic strip appeal.
I think I prefer the second picture creation. It seems more interesting than the first. Do you like one more than the other?
When you think King Kong, you think Fay Wray? I do as well as the classic 1933 production. Since the first King Kong film was made, others followed. In fact in 1986 the movie King Kong Lives was partially filmed near Knoxville. I tried to get on as an extra. I remember going early on a Saturday morning with a former co-worker, Connie Ramsey, along with hundreds of locals sharing the same hopes of being picked. I was not one of the lucky ones. I didn’t know the name of the movie at the time or who the stars were, or filming location until now. This is what I found out. Linda Hamilton starred in the movie (to see the full cast, visit IMDb) and scenes filmed in these Tennessee communities: Fall Creek Falls State Park, Wears Valley and Sevier County, and Lake City (this is a YouTube film clip).

Be a sweet and tweet my hop to your friends! 😉
In case you missed the mews I’m working on my site, repairing broken links and videos while summer blog traffic is slow. What this means is I’m minimizing my content by combining posts that are very similar such as (Not-so) Wordless Wednesday and Skywatch Friday.
Be sure to join me for Friday Sillies and more Friday fun! Have a fototastic day!
