A Bit of a Splash

AA Pic of the Week 125 w

Out for a Sunday walk the other week I saw these people basking in the autumn sunshine having coffee or possibly hot chocolate, because this place serves a wonderful cup (or pot) of cocoa.

There was a screen of water jets coming up from the fountain, so I thought I would take some pictures of the water with people in the background. At the time I did not, although perhaps I should have, think about the fact that the people were in bright sunshine and the water in the shade. But unwittingly I got a rather strange-looking picture. I have not edited the image at all. I think it looks like I have splashed blue paint on a photograph.

Sometimes photos come out in the most surprising way, giving you an effect you did not envisage. I learn all the time!

Oreneta - Like I said, I learn all the time (often through mistakes).

Veronica - Hip hip hooray! (Or you might have heard that one too many times already?) Good to see you back. I have been a lousy blog reader of late, and not blogged myself much either. Shape up!
