Reading Thyme

By chase
A bit of a play on words today Wink

The Thyme is from my garden, smells lovely.
The books are mine, some of them quite old.

Lit by daylight camera left.

Single file converted in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop with a couple of textures, tidy up crop and levels adjusted.

Thanks for dropping by.
Take care everyone.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Yes that works wonderfully well. And of course the insect made its way into a good position in the shot! David

Works for me, Janet, despite the fact that you seem to have dropped the faffing, if your notes are correct.Wink

I've got lots of books like that. They were my dad's and I used to love looking through them as a young girl. All about far away places, some about nature and other random subjects. Smile

I like your title to incorporate your thyme.
I hope you put it to good culinary use too.
Love the old books.
I have plenty of leather bound sets but not as old as these.

It is a precious thing. But is lockdown devaluing it?

Fine composition, love the bee, he adds a touch of authenticity - but perhaps only thanks to Photoshop ?
