We had a couple of fine days but have since gone winterward again. Still I got a couple of pics of daffs to play about with:

    I like the images. Could you write a little on how you created them?

    Thanks,

    Nostalgia for Lynnma
    I've tried to choose a couple with nostalgia value. They are not technically very much - taken in early digital days with an el cheapo camera. Hope they take you back to Cambridge for a moment or two.

    Memory
    Afraid my memory nowadays isn't up to retaining a lot! I use smart blur a lot, and play about with saturation and colour. I seem to end up always with about 50 layers to play with! Anything useful is as much luck as judgement. I love playing around.

    Mary is a photographic purist in the Cartier Bresson mode!!! It makes for much domestic jossing!!

    Oh thank you Tony... thank you how beautiful.. it took both me and husband back to Good Fridays in the English woods.. I used to collect them by the armfuls on my dads farm, up in the spinny. I loved them so much.:cry Scuse tears... brings back so many lovely memories.. I can almost smell the fragrance... I have'nt seen them for years. I used to sit in the spinny for hours on a damp log and just watch the sunlight play on the brilliant greens and blues of a carpet of sweet fragrant bluebells:cry :cry ...

    Thank you so much.

    Scent
    Yes - the dainty fragrance of bluebells is a glorious experience. One not easy to find now alas. So glad you enjoyed the pics. More at my Smugmug site http://candlet.smugmug.com/gallery/88446 together with poppies and all sorts of stuff. I've only just joined SmugMug and am really enjoying it all. So much talent about. You muggers are a great crowd.
