Poem: While Strolling Though the Park One Day

Time for another funny poem!

__________

While Strolling Though the Park One Day

While strolling through the park one day,
I saw a bench not far away.
I sat on it and had a sleep.
What woke me was my cell phone beep.

It was an SMS from Paul.
It read, “Please meet me at the mall,”
I stretched my leg and then my toe
and then I made a choice to go.

I tried to stand but I was stuck.
I guess I didn’t have much luck.
I saw a sign. I almost fainted.
The sign read: “This bench is just painted.”

Moral is, do not be droopy when choosing a bench to sit on.

I hope you enjoyed the poem ;) .



The Single Reason I Love Adobe Photoshop

By Gloson On January 14, 2009 5 Comments

If you tell me what photo editor I like the best, I’d say, of course, Photoshop. It can do almost anything with photos! In this post, I’m going to share with you the single reason I love Photoshop.

Can do almost anything with photos

Yup, that is the reason why I love Photoshop. Yeah, and I mean it can do almost anything. It can make a photo look so much better, remove unwanted items like scars on the face or rubbish in a background.

Enhance photos – If you have a ‘dull’ photo, don’t worry. You can use Photoshop to enhance the lighting and colors, which makes it so much better! Take look at this before-and-after picture, for example.

Before: Dull and ‘boring’

After: Beautiful and glorious!

What a photo enhancement! Even I can hardly believe that a dull and nothing-special photo can be turned into a glorious sight by just using Photoshop!

Cool touch-ups  Besides photo enhancements, Photoshop does some cool touch-ups. For example,  a person in a normal photo can be turned into as if it were in another place, and maybe even another dimension. After all, Photoshop can do almost anything with photos.

Before: Just a normal photo of a man holding a spear taken in a studio.
 
After: Now he really looks like a warrior!

Anyway, if you want to enhance your photo colors, here’s the easy and basic tutorial – Turn Ho-Hum Color into WOW! with Photoshop

Remove unwanted items from photos like scars – And you know what? It is SO easy! In fact, I never realized it, until I was playing around with Photoshop, with the clone stamp. My first serious attempt was the photo of my face when I had chicken pox; quite successful!

I then wrote a howto post on that.

You can also remove rubbish from a background, a bird from a sky, and etc. Thanks to the clone stamp in Photoshop.

Photoshop has lot of tools, features, and options. For example, you can modify the size of your brush, exactly the way you want it. Not only that, it lets you adjust how blur you want the edges of the brush to be!

Also, there are a lot of features, like lighting or hue adjustments, layer merging, clone stamping, embossing, canvas size adjustments, selective colors, adjusting the hue, the list goes on and on, all of which makes it able to do just about anything with photos.

Photoshop is easy! You just need to know how to use it. Here are the 35 basic tutorials to get you started with Photoshop.

Poem: My Dad’s Obsessed With Elephants

By Gloson On January 9, 2009 7 Comments

Hmmm… I guess it is funny poetry time now :) . In this post, I’m going to share with you a poem entitled ’My Dad’s Obsessed With Elephants’. It’s about a dad who is really obsessed with Elephants and wishes it for a pet. And so, when his very birthday came… Anyway, enjoy!

My Dad’s Obsessed With Elephants

My dad’s obsessed with elephants,
he wished it was his pet.
And when his birthday came, I knew
exactly what to get.

I went off to the forest, and
exploring it was fun.
I must bring home an elephant
although it weighs a ton.

I found an elephant which was
as obese as a hog.
I tied a rope around its neck
and walked it, like my dog.

At first, it wouldn’t follow me
and just would not obey.
I lured it with bananas which
then made it go my way.

At last, it was next to my house
(it almost took a day).
I fed it with a lot of fruits
and begged for it to stay.

When my dad saw the elephant,
he quickly got acquainted.
He then jumped up and down for joy;
my mother nearly fainted.

That’s one of the funny poems that are to be published in my poetry book. In fact, it was the first poem I’ve ever written in 2009!
