Sunday Stills: Abandoned

Abandoned leaves

I loved the photo Ed has chosen for his challenge this week.

So I searched through my photos and found these abandoned leaves on a wet day.

Phoneography and Non-SLR Challenge: Abstraction

Abstract Duck

Good morning from a calmer Hastings morning.

Yesterday we had such a stormy day with very strong winds and rain, and freezing temperatures.  There was quite a bit of snow around the country – just a spring storm.  Auckland had no power for a while so I am thankful that I was warm and cosy here in Hastings.

.  I had to go to the dentist and drove past Frimley Park to find branches scattered across the road. It lasted until well into the evening last night.

Thanks for all the well wishes for the dentist.  That went well but I couldn’t eat much all day.  It was actually relatively painless getting the filling done, but it is the sound affects of the drills that get to me.  Ugh!

Anyway onto this challenge by Sally:

This photo was taken back in June this year.  Even though it was totally out of focus I didn’t delete it.  I actually liked the affect.  It just needed some extra affects and colour so I headed to Distressed FX and added a more colourful filter.

Here is the original:
