Coiled Rust

By proz
so I've been doing some water and landscapes lately right? Anyway, today I get this nasty email from my little Olympus Ultra Zoom saying "hey block head, remember me? remember how much fun we had when you used to snap my shutter?" yeah Nobody snapped that little shutter like I can I reckon.

Now I feel such remorse for the neglect of the past few weeks. Ohhhhhhh I am not worthy. Now I must wear my disgrace on my sleeve, seems it's the only place that does not have a pre-existing stain.

hey wait a second................any of this making sense to anyone but me?

Have you read down this far? Smile
peace out

For your sins you are forgiven ,if you and your neglected Olympus produce images like these.A nice quality rust,with a suitable soiled and stained BG.A fine range of brown tones too.I hope you and Olympus have kissed and made up,to continue a fruitful and rewarding partnership.And they do say Proz ,that making up is the best part!!!!!

I am thinking, I know someone who would use your Olympus, save you from feeling badly-- , but if it were me, I would not give it up-- save if for when you get an image like this need, and snap, snap!

Now Im feeling guilty, and wary of opening my emails, I have an olympus C60 that has been woefully neglected too.
Great textures,

I suppose you will be alright once you get back on the medication. Having said that, you seem well enoughto be able to take a good image look a cracking image.
