Quite contrary by maggiemae

Quite contrary

Scientists have found that lazy people have more active brains. They have to spend a lot more time thinking about how to avoid work!

I’m not being lazy here, just wandering in a water colour way through the garden to pick flowers. Then came upon this tiny sprite!….
Old photo but created picture today.

Three Good Things;
1. It’s a good fairy and not an imp. If I listen carefully she will give me good advice!
2. Downloaded some music scores and tried to play them but they were weird. I continued to play - ‘By the Time I get to Phoenix’ Not weird!
3. Found John’s pilot licence at the back of a hall cupboard. Very precious history!
Quite a creative day, all in all. I hope you got that good advice you wanted.

@helenhall Thanks Helen - she said......"Don't worry what other people think. Personality begins where comparison leaves off. Be unique. Be memorable. Be confident. Be proud"

A real story book picture! You look very cute with your hat & pointy green shoes. Th little sprite is perfectly at home among your greenery but perhaps hoping for warmer weather! A pilot too, John is very versatile!

Not lazy taking time for oneself is a good thing indeed. I am sure the little fairy reminded you to BeYourself.

@rontu Best advice ever, Linda!

@happypat The mushroom that the fairy was sitting on was bought at a shop near you when I visited you those years ago!

I think the scientists might be right - sounds like my husband! Love your very imaginative processing.

@maggiemae Oh a John Ditchfield mushroom! Very near us! I wouldn't have guessed!

clever processing

Wonderfully quirky… :-)

@maggiemae - oh I like what she said - especially after having sorted out that she said 'comparison' and not 'compassion' which I read three times before my brain figured out the letters before me.

Fun processing!

@happypat I think John Ditchfield worked with glass, Pat? This one is made of walnut!
August 1st, 2018  
@helenhall They both work but mean something different!

Love seeing you in your garden and edited so artistically.
August 2nd, 2018  
@maggiemae Yes JD uses glass, he specialises in mushrooms that's why I thought yours was from there. Wood will be nice!
August 2nd, 2018  
I love the processing, what a fun shot. The little sprite looks so cute.

@grammyn Surprisingly enough this photo was taken 3 years ago! Fairy wasn't around then, though!
August 2nd, 2018  
Great image and well done with the edits
August 2nd, 2018  
Love your sense of whimsy, very amusing.
August 2nd, 2018  
Lovely editing fav
August 2nd, 2018  
A very cool edit choice! I have an active brain, but only for the creative...not for paying bills, cleaning or anything mundane. Haha!

@gardenfolk Mrs CeCe - I get all enthusiastic about photography and cooking - with a glass of wine!
August 2nd, 2018  
@maggiemae Hahahahaha! :). Me too!
August 2nd, 2018  
What a bizarre thought - a more active brain from inactivity!! I like this and am reciting the nursery rhyme as I look at the image.
August 2nd, 2018  
Mary Mary...... how does your garden grow @casablanca ! No silver bells here just a sweet little fairy with good advice!
August 2nd, 2018  
A wonderful editing.

Like your processing - so that explains why I'd much rather faff about with the camera than do the housework!
August 2nd, 2018  
Cool processing
August 2nd, 2018  
What a lovely photo!
August 3rd, 2018  
Wonderful effect.

l like the story this shot tells, but are you sure that's not Yolanda dressing up?
August 7th, 2018  
@olivetreeann ha ha! No,she's much smaller than me, Ann - that hat is far to big for her!
August 7th, 2018  
@maggiemae I meant your little fairy.
August 7th, 2018  
@olivetreeann Oh, now that could have been so - never thought of that!
August 7th, 2018  
I thought the lady looked like you. qute little fairry.
August 27th, 2018  
@bruni It was me - the photo taken some time ago and I'm still wearing those trousers! Mushroom and fairy put in today!
