More Monochrome moments

this is my submission this week to Leanne Cole and Laura Macky‘s Monochrome Madness

I haven’t been feeling well this last while (but I’m getting better) and not out much taking photos so I took an old one and reworked it. This place is burned into my imagination and all views of it and the mystical Orkneys remain with me and inspire me!

A few more

Here is a bird I haven’t identified from Central America  and though I call him Night Bird I took this photo  at dawn and also one of another more sinister companion of the lagoon. The rest are taken close to home on a neighbouring and less menacing lagoon. I love herons, as to me they look like ancient pterodactyls.


On the bay was taken two years ago with a little Kodak EasyShare (!! then I got a real camera) and there is some distortion on the pier but I liked it anyway.  I used filters in photoshop for a dreamy effect.  Night bird and dinosaur were taken with a Canon Powershot and I used the pinhole effect in photoshop.
