This is a little different for your "wreck" photos. There's a softness that you don't usually process them with. It makes me feel a little melancholy!
Frank L Croston.: Sorry Ellie, I didn't mean to do that, I'll have to find a way to make you feel better,back to 'normal' tomorrow. smile
Like the softness of this one. It contrasts well with the high drama of yesterday`s image. (:o)
Frank L Croston.: I like to show my soft side now and again Rosalyn. smile
I think Ros has summed this up perfectly Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Bill.
Have you taken up painting?.
Frank L Croston.: Ha, if I could paint, I wouldn't bother taking photo's, and believe it or not, this is straight out of the tin, honest! smile
good composition
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Chantal.
Lovely composition Frank, great against the low lying land.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Chad, glad you like it.
Never seen this wreck looking so calm and passive.
Frank L Croston.: My zen-like presence Richard. smile
Straight out of the tin or not this lovely picture does have the feeling of a painting.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Brian, I'm pleased you like it. smile
Wonderful - love it, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Tom, thats very nice of you! smile
Oh no no - there's nothing wrong with being melancholy every now and then! I really like this!
Frank L Croston.: Phew! Thats good, I really thought I was in trouble there! smile

Misty-eyed reflection on great voyages of the past...
Frank L Croston.: Oh yes, very misty around here, Ray.
Wrecks with character.
Frank L Croston.: Lots of it Larry, there are far more round here.
strong use of horizontal lines
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, unintentional, but now you mention it smile

This place has an ‘end of the world’ feel to it Frank. It might be ok if you like birds and stuff but I would hate to live there. I went there a few years back to watch them play us - Bath City.
Frank L Croston.: Well one side of the place does, Andrew, the other has a less than 'end of the world feel'. They've moved on up since then, and have an ex Man city man in charge.

I use my camera because
I no longer have the patience
or desire to take the time to paint.

Like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland I believe

Too much to do
too little time.

Also I take photos for subjects in future drawings and painting

I attend many of the Athens Plein Air outings with my camera and often capture the other members who are painting or drawing
Frank L Croston.: Very good, Alan, I would like to paint,so try and do it through my camera, maybe one day. Painters painting make for good subjects, we used to have a street art festival here and I enjoyed taking pic's of the artists .
I was really confused here seeing all the old names but caught on.

I'm not caught up though as to did you sell your house?
Frank L Croston.: Sorry, Mary. I didn't realise when I posted it that all the old comments would come with it...Duh.
Yes, sold my house and moved just before Christmas ( never do that! )I'm now in our new place .
Good to see you're sorted Frank, quite a nice view to look out on, I guess you can work out your return to your good lady now.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian. Glad its all over, mostly....I'll be heading back soon.
