I know now why Franz Schubert
Never finished his unfinished symphony
He would have written more
but the clock struck four
And everything stopped for tea."
- John Baldrey, "Everything Stops for Tea

I used my Canon EOS 450D for this shot, hand held, with a 55-250 zoom lens on full zoom in full daylight. Levels lightly adjusted Photoshop CS3, otherwise straight from the camera.

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
