I've started following the weekly Gallery, with themes and subjects set by the lovely Tara over at http://stickyfingers1.blogspot.com/
Unfortunately, I didn't get my act together to include the proper logo the first week I participated, and last week when the subject was "A Memory", I was paralysed by indecision (So many memories! Which to choose?).
The theme this week (Week No.24) is "A Photo I'm Proud Of", so I proudly present you with this little gem of digital wizardry.
It's not fantastic technically. And, although it is of Kidling Grand (a.k.a. Number One - & Only - Son) of whom I am naturally ENORMOUSLY proud, that's not the reason I'm putting it up as "A Photo I'm Proud Of".
The reason is simply that it was one of my first amateurish attempts at digitally manipulating a photo I had taken - rather than just pointing, clicking and living with the results. I really like the poster-like effect I ended up with - nice strong colours, sharp contrast, that cartoonish monkey-like poise (oh, hang on a mo - that's natural)....
