    Unusually unfazed by my presence. (Click for sharper image).

    Thanks for the comments both of you. Not everyone's cup of tea I grant you but I'm never sure whether the dearth of comments for this sort of image is politeness or just about not knowing what to say. Colin, for me, computers, cameras and for that matter, artist's materials are just tools. What matters is what people do with them and the images that result. This is an extreme case of digital manipulation and results from the simple application of a ready made plugin filter so I'm never going to be protective of it. I much prefer the image it was made from (which I will post sometime) but Click's comments tempted me to see what response it got.

    Our Garden Friend

    Thanks for the comments all. He's generally around the garden for a lot of the day and comes for a bath in the evening.

    Good catch Rye. I generally only see these foraging up near Glasson.

    Clicker suggested recently that more of this sort of image might be interesting so in for a penny...…………. (Click for better rendering).

    Severn on the Kent at Arnside

    Thanks Clicks, thanks Bill. I might just try to find out when and how she is used. they have had an exhibition this W/E devoted to the village's maritime heritage but the tides would have been wrong. The estuary virtually dries out at low tide and is a pretty fierce race as it comes in so the period over which they can sail is limited.

    Thanks Hatter.

    POTW - w/e 15.7.18

    That's a great choice.

    Thanks you Fuji. He was a nice person as well. I had an interesting chat with him because I noticed the i Pad. He uses a photoshop overlay to produce the grid on any photograph he intends to use for his subjects.

    Longridge, a local market town, held an art event today. Artist were invited to compete for a £2000 prize by selecting an aspect of the town or its near surrounds and completing a finished painting by 6.00 O'clock this evening. This gentleman had recently been runner up (or third? - not sure which) in the recent BBC competition and had chosen to produce a portrait of the local Mayor. He was quite relaxed about my using him in turn as a subject.

    Black Headed Gull Portrait

    The gulls around here do hat as a matter of course and uninvited. Nicely captured Rye.
