Boy on a bike, Wylam riverside, January 1st. A grab shot with the Lensbaby. Really wacky treatment, I know, but since it's my birthday today* I'm deliberately being self-indulgent Wink

N.B.: It's only the colour that has been enhanced . . .

*Thanks to epz for the extra week of e2 membership!

Happy birthday to you, Bill! A great artistic treatment for yourself. Wonderful colours! I love it!
A Turkish photographer created such photographs for a period of time. He was a grand guy in many respects, here are the links, in case you may have an interest:

I've taken quite a few like this Bill, but sadly not by intention. We'll indulge your day as it's not so many who attain great age and still have the joy and exuberance to try new things and excite the less imaginative amongst us.

Dougie

PS a very Happy Birthday Bill and let's hope for many more of them.

Until now I'd assumed the terms lens baby and grab shot were mutually exclusive. Obviously not. Great motion blur amid an impression of stability. Love the colours.
All the best
