A new take on an old favorite :-)

Experimenting with the Polished Stone texture effects in PaintShop Pro… I’d never used this kind of filter before, but I think it suits the subject!

Look also at the brilliant grunge version that my talented friend Ursula did:

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.
