This post could not have been made without the wonderful Mr John Shuttleworth.

Suffragette City

This morning Mike and I headed for the Crich Tramway Village for the annual Edwardian Event. The weather was cloudy and a lot cooler that the resent heatwave we’ve been experiencing. A little sun would have been nice!

The Suffragettes must be pretty fed up that after fighting for the vote most Britons would now vote on X Factor than in a General Election.

Photo To Oil Painting

Another mess about in Photoshop, this time to convert a photo to an oil painting. I took the original this summer at Crich Tramway Museum on my then, very new iPhone 4S using the Pro HDR app.

Following the tutorial on the Photoshop Essentials webpages I set up an action so I can easily convert any photo to an ‘oil painting.’ What do you think?

I can never resit a bit of John Shuttleworth on such occasions, here with the classic Dandelion and Burdock.

Trolleyed

The big problem with the iPad is that I tend to sit browsing the web downstairs with Leigh and I never get round to coming upstairs to the PC and doing blog posts… that will change as the autumn progresses as I might well have something to blog about.

London Trolleybuses

Here’s a bit of action from last weekend’s Trolleybus event at the East Anglia Transport Museum.
