A Steampunk New Year
Firstly, let me begin by wishing a very Happy New Year to everybody who reads this!
One thing that I’ve been doing for quite sometime now is Steampunk. Admittedly, in a more reserved fashion, but nonetheless it’s something that holds my interest and has led to my meeting some very excellent people. I’m also gaining an appreciation of the older ways of doing certain things, but more on that in another post.
I had the opportunity to travel to the town of Bridgnorth via the Severn Valley Railway over the Christmas break. This was a very good day out, though the River Severn was somewhat swollen and I did feel for the people who lived very near to it. We didn’t have very spectacular weather, though I fancy we had better weather than many other places this winter! Whilst I was there I took a number of pictures on my Blackberry and, on reviewing them used a few filters on three of my pictures to produce some “Steampunked versions”. I intended them as Blackberry phone wallpapers for my own use, but one of my companions suggested that they’d be well received generally.
So, without further ado, I present the three images below. They are covered by the same Creative Commons License as the rest of the site, so you can reuse and play with them but not profit from them.
