I won a draw (and am slightly red-faced!)

To me, part of being a blogger is spending time reading other people's blogs. I follow a number of blogs - usually a mix of personal finance, simple living, home-making, gardening and fitness. And every now and then I encounter blogs which grab my interest. One of these is a blog titled Ramblings of the Bearded One. This blog is authored by Kim Ayres of Scotland who has an interest in photography and is also a very entertaining writer.

Recently Kim advertised a prize draw he was going to run. Basically Kim invited readers of his blog to submit a photograph to him and one randomly selected person / photo would have their photo enhanced by Kim. This was too good a chance to pass up so I duly sent off a photo of my mother and I and asked Kim to see what he could do with it. Well, I won the draw! To see the results of the enhancement work on my photo go to : - watch the video (with sound) and see what you think!

All I need to do now is figure out how to copy and paste my wrinkeless photo onto my face! It is certainly interesting to see the changes that can be made - Kim is a very clever man! Thanks to Kim for showing me what can be done!


  1. I'm glad you're pleased with it - and thank you for your warm words :)

  2. I saw your photo on Kim's blog, and just for kicks thought I'd look at your blog. It looks like we're frugal kindred spirits! I love it!

  3. Thanks Melanie - I went and visited your blog too and got very absorbed reading. Certainly sounds like we have things in common.

  4. hey, ive been reading the bearded one for a while now. funny how folks cross paths in this cyber world.. would be cool if we could walk around and wave at each other, meet up at starbucks, socialize like "real" life..

    be blessed
