A lot of changes in my life over the last month or so - one of the two biggest being that I have to move house soon... Anyway, I've also got a pretty demanding new schedule at work and I've had the inspiration sucked out of me when it comes to photography.

However, I'm back! I went out today for a couple of hours in the afternoon, and although I was really trying to find a subject matter to focus on I ended up snapping this and that until I felt I was getting back into it all. This particular shot was one of the first I took and isn't particularly special in itself, but I wanted to try a new Photoshop action I'd downloaded. I've seen it being used around the web but I tried to add a little bit extra to it by pasting in a B&W version of the shot in the background.

I liked the effect, but obviously it will work a lot better with a much more colourful image - so that's a project for the future!

Thanks for dropping by - I hope to get back to more regular posts now!
