Fire buckets at the parcels office of Rowley Station, now part of Beamish Museum.

Good use of the lensbaby here, works well with the vibrant colour of the buckets.

Wonderfully dynamic bokeh Bill. (how's that for a nickname; Bokeh Bill Wink ) To me it suggests heat coming out of that window; maybe it is time to actually use those buckets Wink

A fine way to see the New Year 'IN', Bill. Managed a 20hr stint to see midnight and watch the fireworks on TV. I keep promising myself to get down to the Thames on New Year's Eve but the crowds just put me off.

Rende's nickname may catch on Bokeh Bill! Smile I love your composition here with those lovely spikey circles just edging in on the right and the lensbaby magic!

The red does it for me. I would also like to see this shot with a normal lens, it has strong compositional possibilities.

2 Jan 2013 - 1:31 PM

That red just pops Bill!

I have some colour lensbaby images coming up in the near future. A day in the park downtown in glorious winter sun rendered some amazing colour - I think the LB slightly exaggerates colour.

How did we ring in the New Year? With some good Riesling (champagne just gives us a headache!) and watching a Christmas special of Call the Midwife that I had taped earlier. So, we made it past midnight Smile

Well, after eating and drinking my home-made wine with the family and a friend, I was called by my friends sharing the same block and I went upstairs for another course which lasted until four in the morning. I drank raki this time with specially made hot balls made with bulgur, raw meat and lots of red chilly pepper. However, I was up at 8.30 with no headache. I was lucky, wasn't I? Otherwise, I'd have to pour buckets of water in to appease the bad effect of hot pepper and booze.Wink So, your inquiry and the photograph made me think of all that, Bill.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
