Bubbles

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Blast
The Daily Word Prompt: Copious
All was going to plan. A romantic getaway, a wonderful dinner in the restaurant, soft music, candles lit around the room, hot water running for the bath and then “someone” decided to add some lovely smelling scented bubble bath.
It was then the blast occurred. The spa jets turned on and copious amounts of bubbles appeared, exploding their way out of the bath and onto the floor with no way of holding back the tide.

Worried…..no.
Laugh a lot….yes.
So when an artist and photographer get together to assess the situation and work out what to do……
1. Do they try to mop the floor?
2. Turn off the spa jets?
3. Do they summon assistance?
4. Make the best of the situation? or
5. Do the creative thing they always seem to do when they are out and about?

 

 

If you answered yes to 5, you are correct

I love to splash

“Its OK, come on in my brother, I won’t splash you”
“That’s what you said last time”
“Come on, it’s a hot day and this bird bath is lovely and cool”
“Alright I will. Just don’t splash me”

“What was that? Are you splashing?”
“Oh no I’m not, it’s just my tail trying to get a bit wetter”

“Hey watch out, you’re getting water in my face. You know I don’t like that!”

He wants to focus

Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge: Focus

Just for fun…………..

Twin sisters in St. Luke’s Nursing Home were turning one hundred years old.
The editor of the local newspaper told a photographer to get over there and
take pictures of the two 100 year old twins.

One of the twins was hard of hearing and the other could hear quite well.

Once the photographer arrived he asked the sisters to sit on the sofa. The deaf sister said to her twin, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”
“WE GOTTA SIT OVER THERE ON THE SOFA!”, said the other.

“Now get a little closer together,” said the cameraman. Again, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”
“HE SAYS SQUEEZE TOGETHER A LITTLE.” So they wiggled up close to each other.

“Just hold on for a bit longer, I’ve got to focus a little,” said the photographer. Yet again, “WHAT DID HE SAY?”
“HE SAYS HE’S GONNA FOCUS!”

With a big grin the deaf twin shouted out, “OH MY GOD – BOTH OF US?”

 

On day down the road

Kate’s Friday Fun: Nonsense

One day
down the road
a number of things
found
which helped
to create nonsense.
Always on
the lookout
for things
which make us laugh.
We add
find
add a bit more
until our
small bit
of street art
is done
left for others
to find.

What is taste?

Debbies quotation-inspired image challenge

“Ah, good taste! What a dreadful thing! Taste is the enemy of creativeness.”
Pablo Picasso

Taste is a matter for the individual. Have the following images been subjected to being the enemy of creativeness?

Not to my taste but someone loved this lamp base once

  2.  If you wish to submit an image for the challenge, please email me the RAW and Jpeg format (if RAW is available).  I will then upload the submissions to Dropbox for Download.
  3. Create a post on your blog or Facebook Page, showing your finished edit.
  4. Caption the image Image supplied by # (Who submitted the original image) – Edited by ~# (# being your name or blog’s name).

The After changes by me

Edited by Brian at bushboys world.blog

This time I didn’t go over the top like last month.

How I did the changes to the before photo supplied using Corel PaintShop Pro 2019 Ultimate
First I went to – Effect/Photo Effects/Film and Filters
Altered the original with
Film Look – Glamour
Filter Colour R154 G106 B14
Density 30
This gave a brown tone
Then Effect/Illumination Effects/Sunburst
Bright 30
Horizontal 27
Vertical 17
number of Rays 30
Brightness 70
Circle 100
I then increased the contrast to darken a bit more

Most of the numerical values are out of 50 except the last two which are out of 100. I don’t know if any of this makes sense unless you use Corel PaintShop I guess.
