I think I'm going to try and make this a daily routine

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

My left hand is still incredibly weak which makes it all the more difficult to keep up and build up the speed. These are simple and I daresay hopefully effective. The hard bit will be to commit to the daily exercise and keep at it no matter what.

The new +Paul Gilbert​ album I Can Destroy is out now and it's his best album since Fuzz Universe

Lots of blues, classic and heavy rock, a really fun album overall with lots of great tunes that will make you tap your foot.

Welcome to the Rosapocalypse

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

No I'm not going to go see the new X-Men this weekend, just a word of warning that the next few #floralfriday  posts will be quite rosey as I have a certain amount of rose pictures to go through.

In other news, this is a nice long 4-day weekend which is always welcome, hence the earlier post. Now if the weather could lighten up so we can enjoy spending time outside it would be even better.

Queen Victoria Statue – Foot of Leith Walk – Edinburgh

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

The statue was unveiled in 1907, 6 years after the death of Queen Victoria by the "Leith Queen Victoria Statue Fund" at a time when Leith was not yet a part of Edinburgh. For more information see http://www.edinburghmuseums.org.uk/Venues/Monuments/Queen-Victoria

I've been wanting to work on a more contrasty black and white photograph. After watching a very useful tutorial by +Mark Wallace I've decided to try it on one of my images and I'm reasonably satisfied with the results, in particular how the pattern on the statue really stands out now and makes it look so much more appealing than its original colour counterpart.
