Hello!

Alrighty, and this is the 2nd in a series of 7.

I took my mum to her friend Vivien's place on Sunday and while there, I found lots of things to photograph. As such, I decided to precede each title with 'Viv' to indicate it's part of the same series.

-----

I actually took this picture before the wheel. The raindrops caught me and I was like WOW. It was only after that did I step back and notice the drops on the wheel.

The process was blueifying, resize, contrast, sharpen. Then the framing.

As for the title, I couldn’t decide between 'A Blue Fin' or 'A Blue Finish'...so I went for both Smile

Hope you like this one too.

I think Finnish Blue might have required an adult tag (lol). Nice abstract shot.

HA!HA!...you're probably right! I'd initially thought of 'Finning the Blue' (as in slicing through the sea) as a possible title.
