Once I was a cuttlefish

By ChrisOs
A shot taken back in June on the beach at Swanage. A change from mushrooms. Sepia toned because real sepia (ink) comes from . . . cuttlefish!
For anybody interested in typefaces, I used one called Earwig Factory on this.
I hope you enjoy.

Love the mono look, Chris. Really nice work!

(Not so sure about the 'ransom note' lettering in the frame, though....)

Just having a laugh with the typeface. I bought 4,500 faces for £5 over the internet the other day, and feel obliged to use some of them after such a major outlay. ;–))
Oh! and a footnote. Cuttlefish are called "quiddle" in Weymouth, and possibly other areas of Dorset.

The toning works very nicely and the dynamics of the tide-line, holds the whole thing together. I'm not convinced that these fonts actually enhance images, but I am all for experimentation. Interesting description too.

I'm not overly fond of the text either, but if you've shelled out a fiver then you gotta use them. Text aside, this is a fine image. Quirky but interesting.

Thanks everyone. I like the warm sunny feel of it 'cos it's getting a bit chilly here lately. A frost on the car this morning for the first time this winter.

Watcha Chris,
