On Their Way

It's Flower Friday on the 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!

I have been following your blog for ages but today's one amazed me. I live on the other side of the world, in the countryside in Kauroa (an area rather than a town or even village) in New Zealand. I adore your art. But look! The Technical Educator! I have two books of that in my craft room. The first book contains both Volume I and Volume II. Vol III is a separate book. I took a photo of them but there's no way of sending it. Were these books published in the millions or is this an amazing coincidence? I think the latter. :)
