A while ago, I thought I had found a really good escape route in my quest to find a good blanket for our sofa. I found a great looking wool blanket. It had all the colours I liked. A bit of deep green, a lovely 50’s yellow and some great pink. What a perfect solution marktplaats provided for me (yet again)! Then I actually got it. Turns out, the colours weren’t that bright at all! They were kind of bland and blah. I don’t have a good picture, but this is how the blanket appeared on marktplaats:
And this is how it actually looks:Damn! This isn’t at all what it really looks like. The colours appear really bright on this photo. I guess this blanket just photographs really well. Maybe if I edit it….Now that’s better! This is what the blanket actually looks like. I don’t think a situation like this occurs very often, that you actually have to edit a photo for the worse instead of for the better!
