Today I went to our city's huge 24 hour second hand book sale held in the theatre it raises funds for. There are thousands of books on sale with more put out all the time so it's a great way to stock the shelves. Book dealers are there in force and you can spot them a mile off both from the huge stacks of books they carry and the avid look in their eyes as they search for a high priced rarity amongst the mundane. I came home with a copy of Micahel Ondaatje's The English Patient; I've seen and loved the film but haven't read the book, inside the front cover of the book I bought is a lovely inscription, it reads:
To Anna, Thanks for looking after me this week....I've been your English patient,. love Johnny xxx
I'd love to know the story behind it :-)

Now the photo, I decided to give this the a soft slightly desaturated treatment, this works better if your photo isn't too bright to begin with.
Fly edges #8 @ soft light 33 %
Sail Cloth @ hard light 22%
Apple Blush @ Overlay 55 %
I removed a little of the texture from the fruit in the edges and Apple blush layers.

Don't forget our earlier on the sidebar links, the combo offer for packs One and Two is still running too :-)
