Blood Bath – Weekend Coffee Share 9/4/16

weekend coffee share

If we were having coffee I would tell you that, between interpreting jobs, I had a fun and creative week with my daughters. My eldest has a photography project due, so we set up a few spooky photo sessions (one of the artists she chose, Sarah Thompson, creates haunting images). The original shots are manipulated to create mood and atmosphere, which is an interesting process – especially the layering effect. We have a ghostly image that resembles a scene from the poltergeist movie (spooky doesn’t even begin to cover it); a blood bath;  rainbow tears (okay, so that one’s kind of sweet), and a few others that may just give me nightmares!


This might lead to a discussion on photography in general, and hopefully you would share your favourite images with me, or the kind of shots you enjoy to take.

If we were having coffee, you might ask if I enjoyed the movie last weekend, and I would deflect by rambling on about the fun I had with my brother. There’s also the fact I went to the movies twice – my girls chose the second (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and I enjoyed it more than Batman v Superman, so that would speak volumes.

I would ask if you’ve seen anything at the cinema recently, at which point, if we felt so inclined, we would chat for a while about films or our favourite programmes.


If we were having coffee I would tell you I spent the day with my nephew, and as the general theme appears to be photos this week, I would share my snaps from the animal park we visited.

Then we would replenish our mugs and chat about our other adventures, the large and the small that made up our week. I would tell you that next Saturday it’s my birthday, and share that I have absolutely no objections if you want to bring cake to have with our coffee!

After that, I would head over to Diana’s place and check in.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Does The Huntsman: WInter’s War have the same vibe as Once Upon A Time? I’ve only seen one episode of Season 5B.

    • I miss you, too. I’ll do better and get over for a visit. Woo hoo on the progress. I hope you have a productive writing day. You’re on track, so make that a woooo hoo! Take care ❤

      • Thanks, Mel! I want to get it done and do a cursory edit before I turn it over to you. I think it is progressing well, but we will see! Glad to see your photos and sweet nephew. We HAVE to work out that skype time! 💖

      • Yes – we must get on that. I will work out the time difference and jot down a few suggestions. I can’t wait to see where the adventure leads and spend more time with the fairies. Have fun tomorrow – I hope they share great things 💗

  2. What program did you two use to manipulate the photos? I can think of ways to do these in Photoshop, but I bet there’s an easier (and cheaper) way.

    Love the animal park, especially through the eyes of a child. They see things in ways we’ve forgotten.

    Me, I suffered through more traumatic tech issues. Yikes I am sick of them. This time my whole website went down (the one I manage with a group of teachers, to publish our resources). Not my fault either, but it took me days to convince GoDaddy of that. Which all gave me a hellacious headache. I think I’m better today.

    Talk soon!

    • I’m with you on the tech issues – I had some beauties of my own! Not my website though, the whole thing grrr! I hope your issues are resolved, the last thing you need is another headache. And going back to your question – she used Photoshop, because it’s what she uses at college. But, you’re right, she uses other programmes too, and is getting better at finding the good (read cheaper) ones! Hope you’re having a great week 🙂

  3. Love those photographs you and your daughter created. Those types of images are really special to me – they put me in the mood to write. I’m not quite that good at editing yet, but I hope to be soon haha.

I’d love to hear from you.
