Well, not the idea I had orginally - some selfish beggar kept on parking his car right in front of what I wanted, so I had to go for plan B; Old Windmill:



I think it is pretty obvious what is missing from this windmill, so I'll not elaborate ;)

When I flew into Holland, the weather was beautiful and the sights from the window breath taking. On the return flight, the weather was good again, so I kept my camera handy. Sadly, we were delayed by an hour, and by the time we were at the right height, it was too dark. I did take a few shots, which I could enter with a title like 'missing light,' or 'missing view.'
Better not though, as the quality is not very good.

Still not quite back into the swing of things, as the visit drained me, and I still feel tired.

I'll do my best though to get something.

Thought I'd knock up a quick entry whilst the OH is watching some stupid dance program (it is for a good cause though), hopefully I'll find something better tomorrow.

Didn't get round to do more than a 'just in case' shot, which I'll upload later today.

I'l also put up the new challenge then.

Still coming round from my trip to Holland.

Having been bombarded with security announcements about unattended baggage, on my recent trip to Holland, I decided to make this my entry.

Unattended Luggage.

A self portrait would have done nicely too, as you've been missing for some time!

I tried something a little unusual here. It's....different.....

I took one image of the fork with the MISSING tooth, set up a new layer and using the wand and move tool, copied and pasted the fork to a new layer. I repeated the wand/move and by using freeform, I placed and turned the forks, overlapping etc. I then managed to change the outline to look like a pencil drawing but not sure how! I then made a bottom layer, coloured it in that aqua blue/green colour, then using the eraser tool on the top layer, revealed the colour underneath.

Hope you like it.
