Late 19th Century/early 20th Century: A little trip back in time when going to the theatre or opera was a grand occasion, manners mattered and programmes were beautiful mementoes to be kept and treasured, a time when advertisements pleased the eye in ways they no longer do.

I created Screen Gold with an old piece of material (I had meant to use it on a footstool years ago). Textures are from Design Cuts and 2Lil’ Owls. Images are from EKDuncan, the Biodiversity Library on Flickr and public domain images on Wikipedia. A deal of fun was had in the process! The idea was to create a 3-sided screen-effect with a nod to the beautiful and desirable Chinese screens which were so popular in the late-19th and early 20th Century.

Long-time followers will know how fond I am of changing vintage photographs and adding a little something extra.
Vintage Notre Dame is a Photoshop-created digital adaptation of a turn of the century photograph of Notre Dame and St Michael’s Bridge (Pont Saint Michel)  The photo is in the public domain at Wikimedia and I have added two textures from Design Cuts.

The comments I made and make on your blogs do not register and haven’t during my blog sabbatical.  I have been unable thus far to resolve the situation  This is something I should have told you as soon as I returned from my sabbatical a month ago because it’s still happening. On top of this, there are new comments on old blog posts when comments allowed comments that I don’t seem able to reply to. Apologies. It’s very frustrating.

COVID-19

And now to the pandemic. Please keep safe and follow best practice. There’s a great deal of fake advice out there so check your sources.

In the UK, we have been very ill-served by the Prime Minister (no surprise when you look at the lies spouted about Brexit which pushed so many to believe it would be ‘a good thing’ when it clearly isn’t.  The UK is at least two weeks behind many European and other countries. I believe this is down to Boris Johnson and his pro-Brexit cohorts whose attitude to Europe has coloured their ability to get ahead of the curve, not to mention the appalling cuts the Conservatives had already made during their time in power which now means we have front-line responders like the NHS, who were already struggling from the cuts, struggling even more with the added horror of contracting the coronavirus. Politicians’ negligence is criminal.

This article from The Lancet explains much of what the Tories have done in the interests of no one: Offline: COVID-19 and the NHS—“a national scandal” https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30727-3/fulltext#.Xn-MDVJ7K4g.twitter

I have a continuing sore throat but no other symptoms. However, I have a host of underlying conditions, including my lungs, which make me high risk. If I get the virus, there’s a good chance of my not surviving.

A very dear friend of mine has just lost her husband who died in a London hospital on Friday. They have two sons. When it’s somebody you know, your mind and your dreams go into overdrive. I can’t stop thinking of the family and how profound their grief must be. They were not, of course, allowed in the ambulance, nor to visit him in hospital.

Take care, keep safe and keep laughing!

In contrast to my last pictureFlying Colours — this image was created with just one piece of art from 1870: Jane, Duchess of Gordon,  by Daniel Gardner, a public domain picture from Wikimedia. I used a series of effects with Photoshop tools such as swirls, twirls and tiling as well as experimenting with colour filters. It was the greens of the Duchess’ riding habit that inspired me.

As a lover of all things maritime and a descendant of admirals and sailors, I am often drawn to centuries-old paintings of seacraft at work or play. I created Flying Colours with two images far apart in time. One layer is the Russian Squadron at Malta, 20 October 1827, painted by Alfred Gomersal Vickers which is in the public domain. The other is a photograph of Bembridge Lifeboat which I took the other day. I have melded them together using Photoshop’s various tools to make it look as if it were an original 19th-century image.

This not my usual type of post to be sure but it’s something I find exceedingly worrying. If we don’t do something about the Isle of Wight ferry companies and the truly extortionate prices they charge  — Wightlink and Red Funnel — the Island where I now live will go down the drain. No political party in government over the last few decades has ever seemingly given the Island the money it needs just to maintain the status quo, let alone improve and repair the infrastructure and services.

One of the reasons ferry prices are sounding the death knell is that tourists can’t afford to come over and we can’t afford to get off, whether it’s to visit friends, see our families on the mainland or go to a better equipped and staffed hospital. During the heat wave, Cornwall’s beaches were packed; on the whole, those on the IOW were not.

I could say more about the way the Island has been poorly served over the decades but I won’t. To find out more about the knock-on effect of the ferry prices at The IOW Fixed Link Tunnel Campaign on Facebook and The PRO-LINK Campaign for an Isle of Wight Fixed Link.

As I’ve said before, I have known the Island since I was a child in the ’60s and it is very dear to me. I will not let it go down the plug ‘ole. With that in mind, I beg you if you are a British resident to sign the petition and then re-blog, post on Facebook, tweet, or any other kind of sharing so that the word gets out. A fixed link is the only answer that makes real sense but that’s a long way off. Cheaper ferry prices have to be sought for the interim. It may not happen but the campaign getting headlines could make the right person or persons think again about what can be done.

safe_imagePetition
Empower the UK Government or Parliament to regulate ferry prices.
With current ferry prices being unregulated, companies are permitted to charge whatever they wish for crossings. UK residents living in such places as the Isle of Wight are charged excessive amounts for commuting or travel to see family and friends. Likewise for tourists going the other way.
