Thanks for your sharing wonderful time with me,

Kitchen. !

 

She is the first foreign flickr friend for me to meet person-to-person. though I'm worry about my bad English, she was kind enough to support it and we enjoyed shooting and talking so much, I hope we can meet again, April-can!

Does anyone remember the store? The isles were filled with myriad rows of garden tools, sundries, and baby needs. My sister worked there. I believe it was her first job, ever. I found the old bucket in the shed the other day. Funny, I use it to gather weeds and sticks from the yard, regularly. It wasn't until the other day that I felt comforted by the tattered HECK'S decal. Time moves forward, ready or not.

that day was only one but the memory is forever / いつまでも仲良し

Cut and paste collage made for The Kollage Kit theme of the week - "machines / technology". Best viewed large. The patterns in this collages were made by me using a mechanical harmonograph, which took me ages to build, test and get to work. All up this is one of the most time-consuming collages that I have made (even though it doesn't look it). A harmonograph is a mechanical apparatus that employs pendulums to create a geometric image. It peaked in popularity in the 1890s. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmonograph

Thank you, my dear friends, for your comments and faves. I'll catch up with everyone soon.

TTV stands for 'Through the Viewfinder'. A picture taken through the viewfinder of another camera - usually an old Twin Lens Reflex type.

 

The resulting picture is 'enhanced' with dust, scratches and optical distortions giving an antique look and black border

 

This vintage image is a "fake" TTV as I achieved the effect digitally.

Here is another vintage postcard from my collection dating to the early 1900's, from Europe, which I bought while antiquing.

I have lovingly restored this image today.

Hope You Enjoy!

Magic and Joy!

What I love about walking around in London, is that no again you will find a narrow, dark and cobbled street and it is these streets that make me feel like you are in London. Clink Street just has the old London feel to it.

 

I took this shot because I loved how the street lights gave a perfect leading line coming out the tunnel. I knew straight away that I wanted to give the photo an old school feel to it but on my first edit I just could not get it right, I felt like there was something missing. My thought was to go back and get people in a motion blur to give it the ghost like effect, I did that it I was still not happy, but that is just me being picky. I think what it needs in terms of people is maybe people in suits or some sort of formal wear…maybe going back there during the day when everyone is suited a booted…

 

I tried several times to get the colour right but what I thought was right just did not look right despite being told it does look like a old photo. I did some research on what the colour should look like and with the help of my new SLR Lounge presets system I began to play away until I go this image. I did reduced the blacks a bit more because I just wanted some of the people to be seen/lit by the street lights and brought the vignetting in as far as I could without taking out the light in the middle.

I spent some time wandering the digital “halls” of the New York Public Library last evening, and came up with some gems. There is ever so much more where these came from:

He’s beautiful, he’s bad, he’s deliciously dangerous to know. Darius Varlet’s dabblings in the occult have made him virtually irresistible. Go ahead, try!

 

An enchanting obsession at Halloween or anytime.

Sometimes the practical thing just won’t do, and that is how Aurelia ended up with her stunning Jellyfish Cruiser. In her search for a little something to knock around her undersea town in, she stumbled upon the J3000 Series Sychphozoa Turbo Cabriolet and felt her heart turn to jelly. The test drive did Aurelia in - the elegant design, the handcrafted etching on the nautilus shell body, the feeling of tentacles blowing through her hair when she really opened up the 800 seahorse power engine – complete bliss! She had to have it. Sure, she’s had to put in a little more overtime but it’s been worth every sand dollar, and the fish heads that turn as she zips by in the Jellyfish Cruiser make her smile each and every day. I hope she does the same for you.

 

Signed & dated, this 8” x 10” original collage depicting Aurelia, her Jellyfish cruiser and her starfish stowaway has been constructed of handcut vintage images upon a handpainted watercolor background and features real shell accents on Aurelia’s sectioned nautilus hat. This piece is just luminous and is sure to add unspeakable panache and a sense of serenity to your study, bedroom or powder room. For availability, please see my profile.

Most people scoff at the legend of Atlantis – how could an entire civilization sink beneath the waves and leave no trace? But such places exist if you know where to look for them, and this building, in which a mermaid named Aquamarina makes her home, is one such example. Maybe it was originally a photography studio, a movie theatre or an opera house – no matter. Upon discovering it, Aquamarina swept up the algae covered floors with her little kelp broom, polished the windows with her sea sponge and neatly lined up her shell dishes in the cupboard, claiming it as her own. As much as she loved her charming little home, Aquamarina longed to travel, and she and her cuttlefish companion, Fernando, jetted about the briny deep in search of adventures and new friends. Off the coast of Japan, they made the acquaintance of Shiokara, an enormous squid, who decided to accompany them to Sweden, where they enjoyed a rousing game of Eight-Handed Stud with a giant octopus named Lutefisk, who decided to tag along to the British Isles, where a little squirt named Scrimshaw pointed out the best place to scrounge oysters. Scrimshaw joined the entourage as it made its way to Venice and they became fast friends with a dapper cephalopod named Calamaro who followed them back to Aquamarina’s house, which luckily, had plenty of room. The surly crab, Edgar, came with the house. Now whenever Aquamarina and Fernando set off on a deep sea jaunt, the cephalopods keep the house nice and tidy for her, sweeping the floors with the kelp broom, polishing the windows with the sea sponge and straightening the shell dishes in the cupboards. Though they miss her terribly when she’s gone, they distract themselves by guarding the house, winding their tentacles about its spires and balconies and pointedly changing color as a warning to any overly interested passersby. For that reason, it’s usually best to call ahead if you are planning to stop by for a visit.

 

This original collage of Aquamarina’s house and companions is constructed of painstakingly hand cut and assembled vintage images on 140 lb. handpainted watercolor paper and is accented with handmade paper, walnut ink and a real starfish. It is intended as a companion piece to Aquamarina the Mermaid. Incredibly detailed, this piece is just luminous and is sure to add unspeakable panache and a sense of serenity to any location in which you decide to hang it.

RMS Servia was a 2-funnel ocean liner built by John Brown and Company, Clydebank, Scotland, for the Cunard Line. She had four decks and a promenade deck. At the time of her launching in 1 March 1881 it was the second largest of all ships in the world at 515' long and 52' 3'' wide, after SS Great Eastern. She made her maiden voyage on November 26, 1881 from Liverpool to New York. She was taken out of service and broken up by T. W Wards in Preston in 1902.

 

A detailed history of the Servia may be found Here

Many towns boast houses which are rumored to be haunted, but at most the “hauntings” typically amount to a creak here, a shriek there, a vague sense of unease when passing by. The tiny town of Peakwich has the real thing, however – a looming manse encased in brambles which locals have dubbed “Moribund Manor”. As haunted houses go, there is nothing subtle about this one: the trees around it have long since died, fog enshrouds it on the clearest of evenings and, within 800 feet of the looming edifice, the temperature drops no less than 20 degrees. These oddities pale in comparison, though, to the fact that Moribund Manor is unambiguously inhabited by the deceased victims of every tragic accident or unfortunate circumstance in Peakwich’s history. They include (clockwise from the lower left): Antoine Caput, the only suicide known to have successfully decapitated himself; Little Lorelei Lapides, trampled by oxen whilst sweeping the path; the Sallow sisters (terminal ennui); Owlwin Kestrel, born with his head facing backwards and finally succumbing to cumulative brain damage secondary to continually walking into walls; Rowena Reticule, who drowned subsequent to sleepwalking into a lake; Mme. Bilitus Bathory, from nutritional complications resulting from an exclusively plasma-based diet; Karinina Conniption, suffocated while holding her breath during a tantrum; Petunia Portage, trapped in a chimney while trying to spy on her ex-paramour; Balfour Ballon, tricked out of his head by a mischievous djinn; Daedalus and Rosabelle Deaddraught, drank poison during a pretend tea party; Jimmy Aldabra, Jr., nibbled to death by his giant tortoise; Embeth Ethery, tumbled out of a hot air balloon; Eugene and Augustus Malheure, just evil and creepy kids, no one was even sorry; and Monsieur Lechapeau, set upon by a crazed mob unnerved by his outrageous headwear. Even a giant octopus which was caught up in a haddock net has been spied undulating around the mansion. When one adds to all that an animated set of haunted armor clanking about by the light of a clouded harvest moon, no one is going near the place, believe me. Such a monument to tragedy! So if you are ever in the mood for a REAL haunted house, Peakwich is the place. Have a safe trip.

 

Just in time for Halloween! Moribund Manor, an original collage, is constructed of meticulously hand cut vintage images upon a 9” x 12” x 3/4” handpainted stretched gallery canvas and is accented with Thai lace paper “clouds” and “brambles”, satin ribbon, Dresden trim, art paper, black crystals and a brass lock and key.
