Just messing with images and colours and settings: and seeing what comes up. A couple from an eighty year old photo with shades eliminated to reveal just shapes. Nice shapes.

I think this is York and I suspect this is a bit of York Minster in a contest with the gable ends for visual supremacy. The photograph must date from fairly late in my monochrome days - late eighties or even early nineties - and it demonstrates that nothing does shapes like a black and white photo.

You know the kind of thing: it is Sunday morning and you have nothing better to do, so you start the photographic equivalent of doodling. You find a photograph of your father taken when he was about 72, which, by chance, is your age right now. You take a selfie and merge the two images to see what you will get and you are suddenly reminded of the power of genetics. The past and the present stare back at you.
Note to my son: in forty-odd years time feel free to merge your portrait into the composite. Note to my grandson: in seventy years time .... etc etc.

One of the photographs that nearly went into my surrealism submissions for this month's Three Cameras Project, but somehow it wasn't quite surrealistic enough. One can almost imagine this building clinging to the side of a local hillside. Your imagination is hardly stretched, your credulity is hardly exercised.
