The Dark Side

Lycanthropic tendencies

It's a full moon, 2.30AM, I can't sleep, restlessness, night sweats, hairy palms, jeez my toe nails... time for a walk.

There are no street lights around here so it's perfect for lockdown loonies.

Technical note: I had to photoshop all of these as the iPhone renders all images as daylight so, remove yellow, add blue, balance luminance, ignore AI, voila.

Mush

Q. What happens when you put a a new smartphone in the hands of lycanthrope...

A. He tries to break it of course. I have used this example to specifically show the current limitations of technology and AI. The image below was taken by moonlight at 3.00AM on an iPhone 12 flagship. Look at what the AI has done to the areas it can not decipher - mush. Think I'll call it the 'mush filter'.

iPhone Camera

A few casual pic's from the iPhone - not much good for open landscapes when you blow them up but quite pleased in general, especially hand-held in low light.
