I took a decent enough photo of a local church spire but then decided I was not happy with it so messed around with different filters and this was the result. The black and white is the original photo while the other is the same one just edited using three filters and cropping the size, the filter used were solarizer, negative and old photo then solarized again to get the effect you can see.

These are my thoughts on it, I have been reading and listening with a little interest into the reasons we should stay or leave the E.U. and to be honest I think they are all trash taking each other, the only real thing is the uncertainty of what will happen either way. Which is basically the same as when we joined the E.U. back in the 70's , they also keep going on about how many jobs will be saved if we stay but how about the millions of jobs and loss of our core manufacturing industries we have lost since we joined. Me personally I will be voting to leave as how much worse can this country get than it is already as I said these are my thoughts so please do not bother replying to this.

Yesterday I was priviliged to be invited to the preview of an art exhibition by a friend who was one of the artists, when I got their I was completely awestruck by the talent and work of the four artists involved. If you are in Newcastle I would recommend heartily that you drop in and take a look in you will be pleasantly surprised it is at the Holy Biscuit 1 Clarence Street and runs from the 9th to the 14th June it is open from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. these are just 4 pieces 1 by each artist the pity is my photos do not do them justice.

Just lately while out taking photos I have started treating my digital camera like a film camera in most ways except I take more than the usual 36 frames, for a start before I take a photo I turn my monitor off and block it so I am not tempted to do any on camera editing or check the results of the shot, so I do not know what they are like until I get home and upload them to my laptop, just like waiting for them to be developed lol. If you try this you might be surprised with the results here are a few examples that surprised me.
