The things Barbara gets us into!
Well said, toners !

I'm impressed on how her weekly challenges keep on having a big impact on my house.

Beside the well known Pinocchio corkscrew having suddenly appeared in my house after the Book Jacket challenge, I have to tellthaton mondayevening my bedroomhas beencinammonsmelling for about an hour !

In one of my experiments about the doors challenge I wanted some smoke to appear in a black shot as being lit by the light coming from the keyhole.

Blowing some cigarette smoke would have been a good technicalchoice to meet that task but unfortunalty I stopped smoking seven years ago and no tabacco exists any more in my house.

So I had to find out other solutions to the problem and I ended up using the only smoky maker left in my house : cinammon flavoured indian burning sticks !

The point is they aren't very smoky at all and, after 15 minutes of burning without leaving the least visible sign on my shots I put them out.

When my wife suddenly entered the small darkened room in front of the bedroom she got no reasonable reply to the question she was posing to her irritated eyes husband : What the ... are you doing ?

It's not MY fault, Sergio. YOU were burning incense. I, on the other hand, sat sweetly in my chair thinking smokeless thoughts. Don't you dare tell your wife that it's all the fault ofsome crazy woman across the wide Atlantic.

Went to the link, Sergio, and discovered that dry ice is no more than 15 minutes away from me. Cool!

I just realised that i should have done this shot in B+W. Dogs can't see in colour. If any PS gurus want to convert it they're welcome. :-)

Sergio, Congrats on quitting smoking, by the way! I quit 11 years ago December 16 and it's one of three best things I've done in my life!
