It gives an oil painting affect and best of all it is free. So I thought I would go for an oil painting. I love watching the Antiques Road Show and look at all the portraits that are centuries old. So here is my version.
Good morning from a saturated Hastings. We are in for a wet weekend so a great time to be at the computer.
This week’s challenge by The Daily Post is a dreaded one. Selfie. That is something I absolutely hate. I love being behind the camera, definitely not in front of it. Actually this week I made it onto the front page of our local free newspaper. In full view. This happened when I was filming the memorial service for the 1931 earthquake on Monday. I did know that there were lots of photographers around taking photos, but didn’t take any notice of them. Even when I looked at the paper I didn’t notice who was this woman was holding a cell phone up. It was my husband who noticed. And my mother-in-law who rang me up to check it was actually me. But that doesn’t count as a selfie.
On the local paper website they have one page dedicated to the worst selfies of the week – not a pretty sight. Downright embarrassing I say. This is the one and only selfie that I have taken and that is using the Photo Booth on the computer.
