New Tools, Too

I’ve shaken up my photographer’s tool kit over the past month. Gone and forgotten is the Mac G5 and it’s roars-like-a-jet cooling fan, replaced by a new iMac that’s as quiet as twilight in June. Another Apple in my wicker basket is Aperture, an able competitor to Adobe’s ACR for RAW conversions and definitely more enjoyable fun to work with. From Topaz Labs comes Topaz Adjust, a plug-in that plays nice with Aperture and Photoshop. Sometimes, you just want to screw around with a picture to explore its potential.

But a speedy new computer and imaging software don’t guarantee anything—you still have to step outside and look. I often snoop around my wife’s flower garden—she has a knack for leaving things in the right spots—and that’s where I found this trio of eye-catching watering cans.
