learning and being taught

I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught.

Winston Churchill

I like looking up quotes, especially when I’m avoiding doing something (I have a photo project on the go that is giving me some frustration) and I laughed when I read this quote.  Anyone who has tried to teach me any kind of math or Photoshop or anything where my eyes start to glaze over, my back gets up, and yes, I’m not ashamed to admit it, my eyes start to tear up, will say the same thing (I would never make it in the military). Yes, I’m a stubborn sort, and I have to learn how to do things my own way, sometimes. My winter project is to learn how to use Photoshop as past attempts at being taught by someone else have not met with good results, or any for that matter!

Here are two pics I’ll start with (so if you never see a before and after, it will probably be a good indication of my success or lack thereof).
