there was 
an unsightly lamp post
 in this shot
 to clone it out
 in doing so
 I muddled the building

I could have pretended
 it was like this when I took it
I could have done
 the old
 'oh shoot, when did that happen' 
(used to do that back in the day when I wore hose ... oh no, when did that run - ladder to you Brits - happen?!)
on our nation's birthday 
I'm going to do a
which is to
go with the truth

 I chopped down, er, I did a sloppy clone job
 .. sigh .. 
life's like that sometimes.  


  1. We NEVER would have noticed- Even though I saw & enjoyed you signature!

  2. You are so honest. I'm jealous of your cloning ability.

  3. I don't have a photographer's eye but the building looks fine to me. I'd be curious to see the "before" shot.

  4. Yeah, sometimes cloning is a difficult job! Lol...

  5. cloning is tricky..especially buildings..
    grass and trees are easy..
    but really George would anyone have noticed
    if you had not mentioned it ??

  6. I still think it is a great photo! Did you watch the fireworks last night?

  7. I don't even attempt to clone because i am rotten at doing so. I figure a picture, for the most part, just is what it is.

  8. I had to look pretty hard to find it.
    Love your threes, Daryl!

  9. Barely noticed until you pointed out... Hope you caught the fireworks last night!

  10. I can't clone to save my life. Welcome to the club.

  11. I meant "flagline" (or whatever you call the thing the flag hangs on.)

  12. I wouldn't have know if you hadn't fessed up. :)

  13. the 3 flags are the focal point and they look grand from this POV

  14. I would never have noticed had you not mentioned it. Really.

  15. I was too busy looking at the clever name placement to see the sloppy clone.

  16. Ha! If you hadn't said anything I would never have noticed! I tried cloning out more than a blemish only once...and it was not only time consuming and difficult it also came out much worse than your effort. Never did bother with it again:) On the other hand I love it for little blemish spots!

  17. At least you had a go Daryl, the cloning thing has always been a mystery to me. I was enjoying the three flags way too much to even notice!!
