For a brief period in my late 20s, I drove a 66 passenger school bus full of middle school kids. I did NOT need the Joker to make it terrifying.
Oh! You poor man! I was a bus aide when I first started my “career” in the educational system. But that was on a special ed bus with 20 or so kids. And I only had to manage behavior. I have nothing but the upmost respect for a school bus driver.

The drivers I talk to are mostly veteran drivers, great people and love their jobs. (Did I mention they may be crazy) They know every kids name and have been there long enough to be on their favorite run. And they are all near or at retirement age. Today our schools are closed for two reasons. Inclement weather (wind chill at -15ºF) and not enough bus drivers. It reflects a problem report by school districts all around our area.

Shh, don’t tell anyone. I found it in an antique shop.

Now you tell me.….I followed an elf off the path. He looked okay to me!
It's the glamour. If you squint real hard, you can sometimes see through it. Keep that up, and eventually people in white coats will come to take you away from there.

After reading terse Ted’s thread regarding simplifying slow shutter images, I thought I‘d post this. An image from the TV while practicing with some slow shutter app or other. I’m still not very good at it. It was desaturated and upped the contrast in Snapseed.

Then went for a spin through iColorama, simplifying, tinting… Lastly I pulled it into IC Painter. Now I see a woman standing, not a child sitting.

Or perhaps I took a step or two too many. Or maybe I’m just nuts.:confused:

Just so you know…..That was just for practice. I’m pretty sure it’s a tad bit illegal to use the images. At least without mangling them beyond recognition. I would probably use the second image in a collage, but I would hesitate to use the first. Not just because I stole it from the Disney Channel but also because our rules prohibit the use of even Creative Commons images that have simply been put through one app. And Slow Shutter Cam is definitely just one app.

I started shooting the TV because I just couldn’t get the hang of the slow shutter apps and the different settings.

I don’t see why photographing something from the tv wouldn’t be permissible. Especially if it’s so edited that nobody could tell who or what it was. Obviously, if you can identify someone, then that might be a copyright problem, but otherwise …

I'm guessing it would only become an issue if you were selling an image for profit or exhibiting it publicly. I don't personally see Mobitog as public.
But I'm not a copyright expert!
