Charity shops are the ideal place to find bits and pieces for Still Life Photography.. this cup and saucer was £2. In fact it was cheaper than the heart shaped candles. 😀 😀 Add a few flowers and you have a great subject for photography.

On another topic completely different.. I have another train image for you showing the lights of London. However, due to a moving train and a mobile phone being used, there was a lot of noise. So I put the image through Topaz Impression 2 and gave it a paint effect.

Photographed from a train heading over the River Thames

Have a great weekend everyone…. and stay safe! Until next time…
