Tea.........best drink of the day.

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 29 August 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

No matter what the weather, a cup of tea always cheers you up!

I think this was taken at the Tyne Tees Run this year in the Bents Park, South Shields. I haven't really had time to check the exif, as I almost forgot that I had to post something for today, so it's all been done in a rush. I'm working a long one today, so I'll catch up with you all tomorrow.

I don't know why but there seems to have been vintage cars at just about every event down in the park this summer. I'll be honest I was drawn by the distinctly "Wimbledon" colours rather than just the car itself.

I made this "Droste effect" with the Pixel Bender plug in for PS CS5.

Now I've got some work to do.........can you believe I only have one further picture made ready for publication?

PENTAX K100D 1/250 second F/5.6 ISO 800 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Use control and your mouse scroll wheel to zoom the picture/page, then control and 0 to reset to normal size.

Kinda cool - I like it. I'm usually not one for post processing, but you seem to have a flair for putting together stuff I actually like. Not that putting stuff together that I like will get you far in life, but hey - it's something.... :-)
