Using the "night vision" effect in Picnik on this shot seemed appropriate for St. Patrick's Day! This student was playing the role of the leprechaun who found the pot of 'gold' (well, some cash anyway!) at the end of the rainbow! :) All in fun during the lunch break in the media center.

Funny how various effects or filters impact our world...Facilitating a student group tonight reminded me how easy it is to forget that others may use a different lens to see the same object. Some see through 'rose colored glasses' while others view the situation with less optimism. Intellectually, we know that about each other...but when you are forced to collaborate, you often react from the impulsive 'gut' instead of the more rational thought process. That is especially true of content that evokes emotion and/or the added pressure of a timeline. Interestingly, this group worked purposely (and fairly successfully) to acknowledge and understand the various filters. Lorenzo Walker campus, Naples, FL


  1. Cute shot! I like the vignette effect around the edges!

  2. Nicely done. Sounds like it was a great learning experience.
