These were taken a couple of weeks ago when HB and I had a wee afternoon in Troon. It was a dreich and miserable day but I made the mistake of uttering the words of paternal folly, “what would you like to do today”? “Troon” came the answer! So here we are, car parked and walking to the beach. Before we left HB drew on her leggings and when I took her home to change, she insisted on shorts despite my protests. The result being wee bare legs when the wellies were pulled from the car boot. So far no problem, so here is her smiling “Nora Batty” look. To be serious, the wall gives a leading line to HB which I like, and the rainy day light is soft and diffuse.
Some moments later, the no-sock-welly-rubbing experience is making itself known. This results in “Orphan Annie” instead of smiling HB!
A quick trip to the local M and Co and we obtained some knee length socks. Sadly for me I had to carry her! All now sorted we hit the deserted beach with the newly obtained bucket, but we couldn’t find a spade! This picture using the Google/Nik silver FX pro software is one of my recent favourites.
Another with the same treatment. Handfuls of sand being thrown, socks on full display!
This one featuring Google/Nik colour treatment. I’m determined that the socks are seen! I love how she loses herself in a beach. She is collecting….things….
These ones are taken with the Olympus in camera “art filter” setting. Just a bit of high contrast fun.
A little retro treatment from “colour FX pro”
And again, but with added film “damage”. I love this. I think HB looks like her mum’s family in this image.
Last, but not least. Using the silver FX pro again, I adore my happy wee girl running on the huge beach. She had so much fun, and got so wet, but still insisted on telling me that her short-clad legs “weren’t cold at all”!
