It's Texture Tuesday again at the cafe and this weeks theme was a photo inspired by a movie title . . . .so, with a bit of artistic licence . . . . . .The 39 Steps. Yes I know only four are showing but there were more, honestly . . . .
This is a classic 1935 film ( yes a real oldie . . and no, I didn't see it until much, much later than 1935 :-)) a thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock and it really is worth seeing if you can.
This is my photo. It was taken on the island of Nisyros and is in the partly uninhabited village of Emporios.
The texture I used was "warm sun" and I used soft light at 65% and then two further layers using linear burn at 30% and 32%. On the first linear burn layer I used the black brush to lessen the intensity in some areas.
This island is really worth a visit if you are in the group of Greek islands called the Dodecanese. It's small but the whole centre of the island is a volcano caldera which is still very "mushy" in places . . . .ancient geological term :-) . . . . . and has some yellow sulphur rising up, but according to everyone completely safe. This is the wikipedia entry
Can't wait to see what you've all been up to . .
Love Teresa xx :-)
