HFF ~ happy fence Friday !!
Both these images are of the docks in Bridgwater, Somerset, UK. I decided to make them black and white – I love black and white images and the colours weren’t really relevant to these particular images anyway.
From all the bokeh, you can probably tell I used my 50 mm lens! The autumn leaves and sunshine created some lovely vibrant colours in the park.
This little sqirrel in the park wasn’t at all bothered by my presence. I’m sure he was hoping I’d have some nuts squirreled away in my camera bag! He was out of luck – I keep all sorts of random stuff in my camera bag but no nuts!
Today I’ve had a little play in Photoshop and I’ve processed an image in three different ways…
Classic black and white:
Desaturated and lightly textured:
A soft dreamy sepia tone with a subtle texture:
I like them all – I love the simple classic lines and tones of the black and white, I love the delicate tones of the middle one and I love the soft warm sepia tones of the last.

This is the beautiful little fishing village of Mousehole, in Cornwall, UK. It’s very old fashioned and uncommercialiized, it has lovely old buildings and very narrow streets. The harbour is beautiful too. I’ve converted it to a sepia toned image and added some vintage textures too.
Two versions of the same image. I like them both for different reasons. I like the high contrast black and white tones/textures in the above image and I also like the colours and textures of the image below…
