Posted for Becky’s SquareUp challenge. I’ve gone with “playing around with the word up”.

Boat blues

Fishing boats, Kochi, India

Blue seems a popular colour to paint a boat. The feature photo (no caption) is a canal boat on the River Thames, between Cookham and Marlow. (Sorry Becky but I just couldn’t get a square out of that photo!)

Not the boats painted blue below, but the covers. I’ve never seen these boats in the water, by the way.

The theme for July Squares is Blue

Abandoned

I played around with my images for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned. Some duotone here, some film grain there, and the finals look nothing like the original photos.
