Back in 2003 I was messing around with Photoshop and came up with what I’m using as today’s photo. As I hope you can tell, it’s a mash-up of a couple of photos of me, both having had their color altered. I was semi-going for a vintage baseball card look, like this card of Jackie Robinson from 1955.
I like manipulating photos and think that had my life gone in another direction I might have ended up doing something like it professionally. Heck, maybe I would have been a sports card creator or graphic designer of some sort, although the idea of me being involved in graphic design almost sounds laughable today.
It does get me wondering about those little decisions we make that send us off in new directions. Are there multiple possible futures or just one?
