On the spur of the moment I decided yesterday and today to try and capture the moment a balloon filled with water bursts - this proved to be quite difficult (understatement) even with the help of some willing assistants - seems my children quite enjoy bursting balloons filled with water.
There are a few result in a new gallery I've called "At Play" which includes a couple of the "bursts" and a couple of the bounces! Also, looking at some of the result it struck me how much a few of the balloons captured in flight looked almost like those views from space artist drawings you sometimes see, so I put the through Photoshop and tried to recreate a space type image - let me know how successful you think I've been.
annoying that I deactivated it a few weeks later! I started off with it set quite open put a few posts on, a bit of history and a picture or two and within days I was getting loads of requests to be friends with people I have never known or as far as I could see had no reason for them to 'befriend' me! So started locking down information, accepted a few 'friends' put on a gallery or two, but in the end thought it as just a total waste of time and effort. To be honest the only reason I joined was to visit a group that was set-up for some evening class students to post pictures of their work on. But there is so little happening there and most of the activity was satellite to the group page, within the individuals own pages, so not much really being shared. It was even quite a chore to find out how to deactivate my Facebook page and in use I found most sections a bit confusing and difficult to navigate my way around - then again, I am just a simple country boy after all. Well at least I gave it a go and can at least say with some authority now, that it just isn't for me and I don't really understand the point of it all, especially as it seems to be filled mostly with total drivel!
Born in 1956 (so getting on a bit now) I'm married and have two wonderful children we all live in Devon in the South West of England - on the Cornish border.
