On Their Way
Blipfoto site and it was lucky that I decided to go and search out what I could find in the garden first thing this morning while it was still dry. It has been soaking wet outside ever since. I did find a rosebud that most definitely won't make it into flower but it wasn't a particularly interesting picture. So a bit of digital playing came to my rescue. I took the picture of the departing steam and sail ships out of a book called The Technical Educator: an encyclopaedia of technical education. Vol. II (I only have this volume). It has no publication date but was given to it's owner, a certain William Ferrier, back in 1897 so safe to say it's copyright free. I have quite of few of such vintage volumes that I use for collage purposes, both real and digital. I played with contrasts, layers and some other settings (I do tend to get carried away once I have my Photoshop open) and ended up with the above version. Everything in the picture is on it's way out!
