Fatty the Fish is dead

He had a great life swimming in his tank.

He was fed every other day and had a ring side view of the comings and goings in the kitchen.

Fatty and his mate goggled at us all day.

And now his mate Freddy the Fish is all alone, looking out the tank, in lonely sorrow.

There’s going to be a funeral in the garden tomorrow morning before school.

Digital monochrome #2

15th April 2014

I have converted another digital colour image to monochrome, using basic methods in PSE10. And in case you didn’t notice, I like my black and white images, just so!

My treatment is dramatic.

This old barge was photographed down at Eastney Harbour, Portsmouth. It’s been there longer than I have been alive. And I bet it out lives me, too.

What do you think of the B&W conversion?

A friend of mine asked if I would send him a copy of a digital colour image that I converted to monochrome using PSE10.
