A bit of 'nostalgia' .......


I know this isn't very nostalgic, I took this photo in my dining room this morning, BUT if you think old oak instead of G Plan and peely walls instead of the wallpaper, and an old cottage somewhere, a 100 years ago ...........
what do you think? As you can see, I am enjoying playing in Photoshop Elements and actually looking forward to the winter, so I can spend all the time I want on the computer, with a completely clear conscience!
It has started snowing here this afternoon, and they promise the cold snap will last at least a couple of weeks. Hopefully not sounding too selfish, I hope they are right - I shan't have to move from this spot....
This is the view from my studio window overlooking the field next door. I took it early one morning when the low early sun was on the trees. I just used one layer of texture which was a scan of a kitchen paper I had used to mop up red and yellow paint - Constable eat your heart out!!!
Be back soon ......

Gorgeous images - enjoy your 'playing' and keep warm! It tried to snow here too but was very half-hearted. There's plenty of time though.

Your photos look great especially the still life. It's addictive, isn't it?
