When shall we three meet again?

I’ve spent some time over the last few days trying to take something on the theme of Gatherings for this week’s Photo Friday, and either I’ve been uninspired or the pictures I’ve taken have just been crap, or both. So, on the basis that I decided that I’d enter something each week – regardless – I trawled through my archives looking for something suitable.

The picture I finally decided to use was taken in July 2001 near the summit of West Nab (one of the highest points within striking distance of where we live), and while the original was moderately interesting this reworked version better captures something of our daughters’ conspiratorial playfullness – or at least I think so.

The original was taken with my old camera, a Fujifilm FinePix 40i, and this image is the result (mostly) of i) creating a second layer, Gaussian blurring this layer (with a setting of 8 pixels), then setting the blend to overlay, and ii) colourising the image and setting the opacity of the colourised layer to around 85%.
