*waves fist in the air* font overlays? photoshop? ooooo you’re a mean lady annie, mean i say, mean.
but i do love a challenge, so i’ll font you up and i’ll even go deep into the depths of photoshop for you. both give me the hibigeebies. that is love right there.
i’ve got nothing against a good font, nothing what so ever. fonts are both good and super damn cool. being married to Mr HPMcQ it would be hard not to enjoy a good font, we have many a discussion about the kerning of a font. i know, i know, i’m living the dream. i tend to keep away from them purely because there’s so many great fonts out there in the big wide font world, that before i know it i’ve downloaded hundreds of them and then i can’t make a decision on which little bugger to use, let alone what colour to use it in and where to place it and then what to say!
IT’S JUST TOO MUCH!!!
anyhooooo in the spirit of this weeks better photo project – quote overlays, i will down load
a font hundreds of fonts, upload hundreds of fonts and work some jiggery-pokery in photoshop. you see photoshop gives me the willies too. i don’t know why, bit silly really considering the amount of photos that i take. i really should embrace it. i guess it’s because i know i will end up loosing hours and hours in there too, with all the wonders that it holds.
so here we go
i down-loaded this font, boston traffic from font squirrel, you can down load it here too if you like it. i then popped over to photoshop and overlaid some text on this photo of the HPMcQ boys, which in all honesty i did not take this week. naughty i know, i actually took it two weekends ago whilst we were at the barbican. i hope i don’t get sent to the naughty steps (ha ha pardon the pun) for this outrageous behaviour, as i have compensated by doing the dutiful fontage and photoshopping. it’s just that when i took the photo i really loved it, not sure why really. i think perhaps the mundaneness of an everyday life activity like walking down the steps just captures that moment of time. i didn’t really know what to do with it at the time, but then this task came up and it was the first photo that came to mind. please forgive me x
