..makes me laugh…i recall halloween time in the uk….if you didnt open the door when trick n treaters knocked, they’d get aggressive…kick your door, pelt your windows with eggs or worse…shout obscenities at you thru the letterbox….thats life in the uk now…not like the old days….

After mentioning I had been house bound for the past few days recovering, and not been out shooting, I ran into today’s image ‘Deflation’ literally outside my front door. With Halloween the other day, we had put up some decorations, inviting trick or treaters to come and pay us a call. We had a number of balloons with hand drawn faces floating around the yard, the above poor fellow (if one can call an object a fellow) ‘deflated’ on the ground.

I though the expression on its face was great, and didn’t move or adjust it at all position wise for the image.

In Gimp I cropped the aspect, pushed the contrast a little and also brought out the yellow slightly.

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating!
