Tell a Tale in Pics n Words
by Mac

Ive always been interested in Photography, but since meeting MDW Julie - who is very Artistic, I have got involved in Artistic Photography, ie - playing around with my photos, be it in changing them altogether or setting up a photo shoot.

Some folk like my Artistic Photography and there's some that don't, sorry if you don't enjoy my Journey, lol.

My Header and next few photos are photographed in my Light box(portable) 
My Header
Here you see a Dinky Toy Car, set  up in my light box, place upon a mirror tile, then the photo turned upside down, so   the underneath car(reflection)  is to the front.

A Plain Scent bottle, but with lights shining on it - suddenly you get this Burst of Colours.

Times up! - Loved setting up this shot, plenty of playtime was had,lol

NOW
On to my Playtime - some photos are changed with just a click, and some are time consuming, as I work on them  - adding things or changing them completely.
The Ghost Train -Steams through the night, hoping to fill all the carriages with passengers before the early morning light.

Ghosts
Ever been in a Haunted Castle? and seen a Ghost?
Well here's One.
The story to this Ghost is that she never made the Alter - her  lover shot her before she walked up the Isle.

The face in the bottom of the  Glass.

A night scene looking out the window to the Ghost ship sailing by.

The Glass Pyramid in Paris, with me inside reading the book by Dan Brown, where the story was around there.

A twirl and we get a huge wave, then added the man on his sail board

Another Twirl, and we have Car Lights going around the Round-a-bout,lol


A clock on a wall - then just with one click - and we have an Extruded Clock,lol

A flower, Framed and Shattered edges, which seems to pull you into its centre.

B/W photo with a splash of colour.

The story of the BIG BANG

This is the one that took me 3 hours to complete with just one photo!

Now we come to the last photo
The Artistic fellow called Mac
Your's Truly,lol called 
Through the AGES of Mac.

THATS YER LOT FOLKS

If you have enjoyed just ONE of my choice of Artistic Work by Mac,
Then it has all been worthwhile.

SPANISH DESIGN
Team Choice

Wonder who's been to Spain in the last few weeks?
lol.

My Spanish Design and Header is
To me - one of THE most  beautiful Churches Designed  in the World is
SAGRADA FAMILLIA CHURCH
in Barcelona - Spain.
+
The beginning of the plans for this Wonderful Church started in 1866
The 1st Stone was laid on 19th March in 1882.

Francisco de Pavla del Villary Lo Zano was the 1st Architect but was replaced soon after by 
ANTONI GAUDI.

SO
let me show you some Photos of this 
Wonderfull Designed Church.


This Photo was taken in the late 1960s, 
My Mate  and I on our 1st Holiday across the seas in our Teens.

Julie and I went on a Cruise to the Western Med a few years ago,
calling at Spain - Barcelona.

Here are more photos  from
SAGRADA FAMILLIA CHURCH



Now lets zoom in a little
and see some close-ups EH!





There's just too much to see here.
also inside, sadly it was so busy, we were like sardines in a can, just could not get my camera up to shoot anything, as it was pouring with rain outside.

Just to finish off with
And - the Building goes on and on --

THATS YER LOT FOLKS
