We are short timers here in Texas and and Storm is starting to display the itchy symptoms of someone anxious to get on the road. When we first arrived here I begged Storm to pull in the slides whenever weather radar depicted a tornado twirling toward our RV. At that time he adamantly refused to batten down the hatches stating, “Let her blow, that’s why we have insurance.”
Now that we are planning to leave soon and will be dependent on our home leaving with us, Storm sucks in the slideouts like a turtle under assault when the weather guessers mention any type of storm in south Texas. We have been lucky and the winds that pummel us daily also seem to blow most bad weather north toward Houston avoiding our blustery slice of paradise. Because severe weather is supposedly headed our way today and Storm is on high alert, I find myself inside the slide retracted bus (a “bus” is exactly what it feels like with only a center aisle to move about in) squeezed up in a corner at the table.
To entertain myself, I decide to play with new photo software one of the digital photography schools I follow lured me into buying at a heavily discounted price. This software magically adds animation to still pictures and is relatively easy to figure out after a few tutorials. I tried it on some old favorite photos of mine with sometimes interesting results (shown below). If you want to try this on your special photos, check out the Plotagraph website. If you save these as .gif files, they can be painlessly added to websites or sent to digital picture frames for a little variety in your display.
