Elizabeth House inverted colours

9/52 for the group 2014 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This weeks challenge was: I is for Invert

I tried to find an upside down thing to photograph, but failed to spot a suitable subject. I therefore went for the technical challenge of using the filter in PhotoShop to invert the colours. After trying a couple that didn't really work, I hit on this photo of the place I used to work in London. To my surprise, the filter worked really well.

Back in the early 70s when I worked there, Elizabeth House was the offices of the Department of Education and Science. Now, however, it is empty and to let.

10/52 for the group 2014 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's topic was: J is for Joint

I looked up the definition of scissors and this is what it said:

noun plural but singular or plural in construction \ˈsi-zərz\

: a tool used for cutting paper, cloth, etc., that has two blades joined together in the middle so that the sharp edges slide against each other."

If the two blades are "joined in the middle" I hope this counts as a "joint". :)

The crochet that the scissors are resting on will be an Easter bunny. The plan is to crochet them for the grandchildren to include with some Easter chocolate.
