This, and then that

I find I am continually coming back to my original photo of the seedheads taken at Inverewe Gardens on the west coast of Scotland. and then playing with it in psp.

Poles apart

I caught sight of these three poles wrapped in disintegrating plastic and thought they had potential! Used layers and blends in Paint Shop Pro. (I've gone back to the old editor in Blogger - find it much easier for moving images and text)
