Saturday Shadows

By ChiliMan
Helloooooooooooo, people SmileSmile

My word...I just checked, and my last upload was the 8th of July!! Blimey. Even for me…

I won't go into the details 'cos it'll take forever, but it all started with me being preoccupied with health issues - first my mum's, then my dad's, then mine. We're quite polite like that - we take turns.

The second half of my absence was what I call 'bad momentum'. Where something falls out of your routine (or even peripheral vision) and if you don't make a conscious effort to bring it back in, you keep putting it off.

Now I probably won't be uploading every day 'cos I'm finally going to get into my writing. And EPZ can take up a good number of hours if you let it. But I'm going to set myself a minimum of two uploads a week. That way I get to enjoy EPZ once again yet not spend too much time online.

On that note, on with the pics! Two for Saturday Shadows. Taken this afternoon.

Nice to see your work again, Andrew.

Hi Andrew,i love both the actual and version,it's got everything,shading,texture,colour,macro and detail in heaps. this sounds daft but usually we can do selective colouring in this it almost looks as though you have chosen to do the opposite and had selective mono but it's more like selective silhouette with colour.Amazing.love itSmile
