Happy T ~ K ~ W Day.
There is a lot happening right now, it is the start of Spring (Loud Cheers), Australia is one week away from Federal Parliamentary Elections, and John is packing to go on another little holiday and photo-shoot. We will be home on Friday the 13th of September.
Today’s image has obviously seen its fair share of time in photoshop. We took Pokey and Gumby with us when we visited Forster a while ago. The original scene was captured at Green Point on the shores of Lake Wallace. Gumby was beside himself with joy after being released from the glass balloon the Witch encased them in!
A bit of magic with the “Puppet Warp tool” in CS5, and several other filters were used to create this unusual image!
