Texture Tuesday

Oh my how time flies when you're having fun, or when you are stricken with a dire bout of the flu and then your grandbaby gets croup and your eldest daughter catches that from her baby, and you go to a funeral and you hear of another one to go to, and you are training in the midst of this to be a census collector and have a test to submit before you can be truly employed. Oh what a few weeks I have had needless to say I have not touched my camera, I have barely been out of bed by 8.30am most mornings, and I have watched more telly than ever in the last few weeks, because I am just exhausted from trying to breathe mostly and just want to veg. Boring !!!!!!!
So I am back well somewhat back, and am submitting in Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday again.
This weeks theme is Pink.  I scoured through my London photos to find a picture of Pink, yep the very sassy blonde bombshell Pink.  We ended up standing about 10 feet from her in Trafalgar Square back in April 2009.  The mobile phone service provider 3 was doing a flash mob style advert, and we were given microphones and sang karaoke in the square.  It was a total hoot and suddenly just in front of us a person stood up wearing a hoodie and climbed on a frame thing and started singing "So What", she pulled back the hood and it was Pink.  I went crazy, before this I have to say I was not a huge Pink fan, barely knew her songs but I don't know, just being there in the heart of London in Trafalgar Square, being filmed for a television add and then having Pink pop up just in front of me, well it was fantastic.
Now I am a convert, I even have the latest CD and everytime I hear her sing "So What I'm still a Rock Star" well I am transported back to London, to Trafalgar Square and well I just love it!!!!!
I didn't feel these pics were worthy of texturing though, they are quite blurry and I didn't think they would be good enough.  So once again I very typically resorted to a flower shot, I swear one time I am going to set myself a task of not shooting any flowers for a month I swear I am.
Oh one more Pink shot before I post the pink flower.
I tell ya she was waving at me I swear she was, you can see that can't you?!!
Anyway my pink texture Tuesday shot, here goes.
So I duplicated it, posterized it and then I used Kim's Granny's cupboard texture on softlight at 63% and then Sweet Treat on Overlay at 90%.  I like the drawn effect the posterizing give it. So there you are my Pink post.
