Blue Bottles

Blue Bottles

...I tried a bit of digital manipulation today---

As to the PIGS NOSE: Diner culture includes the vintage advertising signs as part of their decor. To understand this sign, one needs to think about what a pig does with his nose. They are usually snuffling about digging up whatever patch of land they are pastured on. Their NOSES never seem to wear out.

Maybe back to normal tomorrow!

I don't normally like to see frames on the shot but it works well here, good idea on a well captured image.
