dilute developer

anonymous asked:

I feel like that one scene in one of the earlier seasons where Ali sneaks in Emily's window (the "you destroyed me! i thought you were dead!" "but i'm not, aren't you happy i'm not?" scene) and she tells emily, once she sees she has Ali's journal, "im sure you're wondering which one is me, the one infront of you or the one that wrote in that book.... so am i" Ali has ALWAYS questioned herself in regards to Emily, it's not a new thing. People are so blind to their connection it drives me wild

Alison has always questioned herself and she’s always been evolving – even at a slower rate than most. Everyone just wants an excuse to dilute her character development because they don’t believe former liars (which were like… fifteen, at the time) can become decent people, almost as if we live in a one-dimensional world. Interesting how ignorant some people can be.


South Congress, Yellow filter, and low contrast.

It worked! The new paper doesn’t produce quite as sharp a print as I’d like, but it’s still not bad for definitely not being made to do what I’m making it do. The yellow filter and higher developer dilution make it very low contrast, almost lower than a lot of negative films I’ve used. All these have been edited a bit, mostly turning up the contrast a bit to make things more pretty and adjusting exposure. I’ve also left the scans in color, as it gave the photos a nice warm tint that I like quite a lot. One thing I noticed, that I found quite interesting, is that in the last photo the leaves on the trees are a bit too bright, due to the large amount of green/yellow that they’re reflecting. I love how the color of the light really matters in this case. It gives the process of taking the photo another layer (that can be unwelcome sometimes). I look forward to shooting with this more. I think next I’m going to go to a river, I feel like taking photos of some big trees.

The Essential Oils of the MBTI - Jennifer Howard

If the MBTI types were essential oils, which ones would they be?

ESTJ – Cinnamon: Made from the spicy tree bark of the tree, Cinnamon oil is a traditional fragrance that is associated with warmth, strength, and history. It can be used for functional purposes such as an immune supporter when taken internally, and it also acts as an antibacterial.

ESFJ – Jasmine: Considered to be one of the more sensual smelling essential oils, Jasmine is commonly sought after for use in the cosmetic industry as it helps even out skin tone when applied topically. It is also used in a lot of women’s fragrances because of its association with feelings of affection and romance.

ISTJ – Peppermint: Fresh, clean, minty, and traditionally used, Peppermint reminds us of everything from toothpaste to Christmases from long ago. It is so commonly used that its fragrance and flavor are instantly recognized.

ISFJ – Rose: A traditional yet feminine fragrance, Rose reminds us of everything from our first date with the love of our life to our grandma. Rose usually has a very comforting effect to it. It’s soft and sweet aroma is highly sought after in the cosmetics industry.

ESTP – Bergamot: Although Bergamot has an earthy scent, it’s actually a strong flavored citrus fruit. It’s considered a “hot oil” which simply means that it’s so potent and strong that it needs to be heavily diluted before applied to the skin.

ESFP – Orange: Made from the pressed rinds of the fruit, Orange oil has a citrusy-sweet smell to it that is associated with feelings of happiness. It’s a care-free-day oil. It’s strong and it doesn’t take much to fill an entire room.

ISTP – Sandalwood: A soft, warm, but ultimately masculine fragrance, Sandalwood has often been associated with sexuality. It complements the more feminine Jasmine who also serves the same purpose.

ISFP – Ylang Ylang: As a tool for aromatherapy, Ylang Ylang is a floral oil that is used to combat anger. It’s naturally soft and sweet, but at the same time, still very different from other floral oils. It is traditionally used in marriage ceremonies in parts of Asia.

ENFJ – Lemon: This oil has a bright and refreshing fragrance to it. It’s not pompous or overbearing, but cleansing and natural. It’s popular; used in everything from cleaning products to cosmetics. Lemon energizes us and reminds of all the best parts of the hottest summer days.

ENFP – Lime: This oil is playful and uplifting. If happiness were a smell, it would be Lime. It’s kinda zesty and quirky in a way that lemon and orange are not. Unlike lemon and orange, it’s not as easy for it to find a spot in your menu as a flavor additive because it stands out too much in taste.

INFJ – Sage: An oil commonly found in spas and aromatherapy products, Sage is often used as an anti-stress agent. In some cults and religions, Sage leaves are burned because the fragrant smoke is believed to ward off evil spirits.

INFP – Lavender: The oil of peace and calm, Lavender is the perfect oil for healing. Lavender is gentle and can be used on all skin types including babies and pets. It has cellular regenerative properties, meaning that is accelerates the healing process for minor skin issues such a burns and cuts.

ENTJ – Anise: Though it’s technically a flower, Anise oil is often made from the seeds of this plant and those seeds have quite a spicy kick to them. Anise oil is often confused for the smell of black licorice. It’s an extremely potent antifungal as well and must be applied only after being heavily diluted lest you develop inflamed patches of skin from its exposure.

ENTP – Ginger: Known traditionally for its ability to calm a nauseas stomach, Ginger is a rather unique scent that still has more to give you if you’ll stay around long enough to see what it has in store. It’s naturally spicy, but also warm and inviting. Ginger is a good oil to use if you’re looking for something to energize you a little bit.

INTJ – Black Pepper: Even though it’s spicy and pungent, this oil has a warm aroma to it that borders being energizing or overwhelming. It does not blend well with other scents for the most part so its use is almost always for practical purposes such as medical applications or cooking.

INTP – Dill: Although it said to have some calming qualities to it, for the most part Dill is a rather odd and pungent type of oil. It’s more functional than aromatic, making it a good flavor additive for the appropriate foods.
