Colourise 

It’s been a while since I’ve been motivated to take any images. Partly due to some things going on outside of photography that has stopped me, mostly mental, and also because I just haven’t been anywhere. Well ok that’s not true, I did make a trip back home to a Melbourne and I have a few from there I will post up soon….when I find the memory card. Quick pro tip….keep your memory cards safe!

Post though I wanted to share so,etching that I found my self enjoying immensely, and am determined to do lots more of.

Taking old photos that were shot in black and white and bringing them into the colour world.  As a scientist in my day job I chose two important scientists to start, and I think will make it a bit of a passion piece. Please be aware that these images were NOT taken by me, but I did colourise them.

Please let me know what you think in the comments. The first is Nikolai Tesla and the second is Rosalind Franklin.

South Side of the River

Bankside in London

I never really took much notice of the lamp posts in London, but these ones have fish on the bottom of them!  I was thinking of naming this image Carp-ey-Diem but then I may loose followers due to the pun….

Bankside and Bokeh!

Tower Bridge – From the river

London Tower bridge

Today we took the river bus to Greenwich and we passed under Tower Bridge.  I had never seen it from the river before and had only previously been able to get photos from the side.  The river bus costs more to get around than the underground…but it is totally worth it for views like this!
