Grey December Day

20121228-150814.jpg

Today is an awful grey affair, cold, wet and muddy. I took GBoy to the park to try his new bike and in the hour or so we were out I was barely inspired to take the camera out of the bag.
But in the spirit of endeavour I first tried some fleeting dogs, none satisfactory and then settled on tree shapes. These two are tweaked in Snapseed, a little contrast boosted and remind me of illustrative woodcuts, maybe for a Poe story.

UPDATE.

I had to dig this up and add it on. Thinking about Poe I remembered this. The excellent Christopher Walken reads ‘The Raven. This is from a 1997 project called ‘Closed on account of Rabies‘. Read more about it here and then listen to Iggy Pop reading ‘Tell Tale Heart‘ Its so not Christmassy!
