The Inexcusable Situation

The UK’s politicians – especially the Conservative Party politicians – should hang their sorry heads in shame…

“On Tuesday, a man died after being found sleeping next to the Hilton Hotel in Nottingham. On the same day, a homeless father-of-three was thought to have frozen to death in his tent in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

In Glasgow, a 43-year-old homeless man was found dead inside a car park on November 17. 

In another case, a pub landlord in Bury attempted to save a homeless man on November 15, but he later suffered “a medical episode” and died in hospital.

On November 4, a man believed to be in his 50s was found dead in a small park in Camden.” Source Huffinton Post.

The reality is, we need Boris Johnson and his shabby friends like we need cholera.

The New Toy!

Just messing around with the new Create From Image tool in Photoshop (Find in Photoshop Libraries or see video below).

The top images shows what happens when I used the new tool. The bottom images is the original (source) image. The top images is what you get when you push the source image through the Create From Image tool. The Create From Image tool is perfect for making patterns, background images etc from existing images.

The the video below where Terry White talks about new tools in Adobe CC, including the Create From Image tool in Photoshop.

The Shockingly strange outcome…

I had another long-exposure mishap (original here) last night. I took the failed image and pushed it through FX Photo Studio’s symmetry filter and arrived at the rather spooky and unintended image below. There’s a naughty little beaver (or is it Count Dracula?) in there looking out at you. A digital doodle? Viewers of a nervous disposition should turn away NOW!


The Lilly Oak on the slip…

The fishing vessel Lilly Oak sits on her cradle on the slip at MacDuff Harbour, Scotland. The slip is a long sloping concrete ramp (image coming soon) used to haul boats out of the water for repair and repainting. The cradle that supports the ships runs on railway lines on the slip.

See a larger version of this image here.
