I took these last year and played with them, using various filters and the like. It amused me.
The only thing that is not tweaked with them is the basic composition. It really was a heart shaped leaf, pretty much the colour that it is shown in the top photo, on a gravel path in a park.

Sir Laurence (or Lawrence) Carter, Baron of the Exchequer, was an 18th century judge in England. The name Lawrence Carter has been used in my husband's family for some time, possibly named after him or not. My late father-in-law was insistent that this was not the case, but the family story persists. This is a portrait of him.

This sort of follows on the theme of yesterday. I found this in the Pioneer Village at Swan Hill, on the Murray River and the border of Victoria. It's a portable vault used by funeral directors in the country in the past, and I presume it was filled with ice to keep the deceased, er, 'fresh' in the searing heat that happens up there.
