“Isak, my man. Why is this shirt laying here?” Mahdi picked the dark fabric up from where it laid by the door of their new flat. Isak looked up from where he was collecting up empty beer cans, raised his brows.

“Oh, im tossing that out. It got too short for me.” Isak shrugged and continued to tidy up. Mahdi considered the shirt in his hand, unfolded it and held it up in front of him. 

“Can I have it?”

Mirrored

Another Reitdiephaven visit. This is a blend of two images. One base expose, one for the highlights and reflection in the water. Edited in Photoshop, Lightroom and Nik Software. Post processing inspired by Mike Kelley and Elia Locardi (fstoppers tuto’s). Next week I’ll edit some again. Shot enough through golden and blue hour.

Well this is lucky. Apparently for this FossilFriday I’m starting with ammonites in stuff.

This is a look at one of our favourite ammonites, prior to the outer matrix being polished. These ‘Cannon ball’ nodules (rocks) are thought to be exclusive to the Yorkshire Coast, found nowhere else in the world. They rarely contain fossils, but when they do, they typically contain an Eleganticeras sp. ammonite. This fossil here is featured as found. When prepared, the outer pyrite coating of the nodule will be polished, to achieve a golden mirror effect.

To be kind to all, to like many and love a few, to be needed and wanted by those we love, is certainly the nearest we can come to happiness.
