Love actually

By mrswoolybill
A detail of a card shop display in Harrogate last year. Tweaked in Levels, and I cloned out a bit of string - no other manipulation involved.
For romantics everywhere.
Thanks for looking,

Strings attached even on a Valentine? Why are so many cards coloured red, the colour of anger? It tickles me, just a little.
Have a good day Moira,

Thanks folks. I'm looking at this and wondering if I should have processed it more to get rid of all the little reflections and so on - but then it would be a card design rather than a picture of a shop window...
We're heading out towards the coast today, there is actually some wan sunshine here.

How beautiful, I love all the reflections Moira, they make the image for me.
Have a great day at the coast - sunny here in Seaham at the moment, but windy (as always!!).

Thank you so much Moira. I was thrilled to bit when the postman delivered your little token.Incidentally Moira there is absolutely nothing wrong with a bit of manipulation as you have demonstrated today.

Romance is a very expensive commodity Moira.There are some restuarants in Edinburgh charging DOUBLE prices just because of the day !! It is enough to make me choke on my **** a Leekie soup !!
Romance ? That's for the birds !!

Many, many thanks, this is a wonderful surprise to come back too! We've been out for much of the day, and I've been processing pictures since we got back - results will appear eventually. It was so good to get out and see clear light.
And now I have to go out to start training up some Community Photographers for the town - it's all go.

Ah, what a smashing image for Valentines Day Moira. Hope you have a Vase full of Flowers beside you right now, and hopefuly not bought by your good self Smile
