River at sunset. Fantasia Painter.

Inspired by the work of Cole Thompson, black + white fine art photographer. How? I started this doodle intending it as a b+w, but then got carried away, a little. Cole’s work is minimalist to the extreme. Imagine a curved sliver of silver for the river, and just another sliver as the horizon, everything else black. That’s his style. My idol. 🎴

Another plant that has me intrigued. Tropical in flavour and somewhat delicately orchid-like. Any suggestions as to species? Whenever I see it, I must touch it to make sure it’s real as it has that plasticy fake flower look to me! With this pic, I’ve tried the web effect to, essentially, act as a vignette to hide the distractions around the edges. Processed in various software. 💥

I’m gonna eat you up if you’re not careful! PicturesLab.

That’s the feeling I get when I look at this building! Can you guess, I do not like this apartment building, just two streets from where I live, which is a quiet pocket of historic residential homes. On a really sunny day, guess what happens with that gold shiny fascia? Yep. How this passed muster with the local Planning authorities is unfathomable (unless someone’s palm was greased)? 🎴
