Work in progress

By mrswoolybill
Taken on a back lane that has been a particularly fertile source of inspiration for me over lockdown. Colour will appear next week some time.
The version is for Alan. I'm sorry I couldn't bring him back the real thing from Wallington yesterday, this is the nearest I could manage...
Thanks for looking,

Looks like the paint tins have been there since they last painted the door, great shot. One last thing what is it about a bacon roll that makes you always lick your lips...
Yes we get a lot of pretty girls and beautiful landscapes on epz

But Moira ... v1 ... that is a beautiful photo! GrinGrin

A terrific image Moira and great processing too. I hope they are not going to use emulsion though on that door !

Painting over the cracks?

How come Alan gets a bacon butty? Not fair!

Fantastic! I wondered what all the comments were relating to bacon... then I noticed the versions. Had me baffled!

Hope the paint scraper come out before the application of the paint. Superb mono composition,Moira.

plenty of photographic value in the lead (and nutritional value in the version)

Great find, Moira, the irony of it...
I guess the painters are still eating their bacon rolls, looks delicious!

Thanks everyone, and thanks to Tony and Alan for the UAs.
As regards otter and oysters, I shall leave Alan and Leo to their own private discussions...

I think there will be many hours of sanding and filling before, we need the lids off the paint tins! Would make an ideal before and after picture for the paint manufacturers! Assuming there is an after!!!

Splendid job, the photo that is, I'm not so sure about the painting.
A neighbour dropping a hint, perhaps?

Now I'm grossed out about the otter sucking an oyster. Now I see Alans tongue hanging out of the otters mouth. Ooooooohhh.....As for the lead, that's a big job fixing that up. And maybe a waste of time. Great images though Moira.

Great, grainy image and lovely textures... That was the bacon butty, now for the B/W!

Don't think Crown would use the image in their next colour brochure but I feel it may catch on! Wink

Both excellent images... The first one makes me think I have to re-paint my kitchen, the version looks yummy.

Painted into a corner? (I'm 93 for goodness sake!)
If I bung a gong your way can I have that bacon butty? 😀
(Please tell Bill there's a gong for him if he posts a photo of a sausage bap in the next seven days.) 🤣
