Not Exactly Strawberry Shortcake

Nevertheless, very tasty!

Two cheesy biscuits covered with sugary strawberries and topped with vanilla yogurt. Delicious!

The cheesy biscuits were made from a Marie Callender's mix that I found at the Dollar Tree store. The package yields five or six drop biscuits- add your own milk and butter. Not a bad deal for a buck, and just the right amount when cooking for one or two people.

A Tiny Battle Field

Yes, pun intended.

This is the battlefield at Battle, UK, where the Battle of Hastings was fought in 1066.

I saw a photo of someplace else done with the Tiny Planet iPhone app. Call me cheap, but I've had my iPhone for over a year now, and I haven't found any app so profoundly attractive or interesting that I have been willing to pop the 99 cents (or more) for it. It's kind of like pay TV and movies. Why would I?

Nevertheless, I thought I'd go into the archives and see if there wasn't something I could play around with. Keeping in mind that it never crossed my mind to do a tiny planet picture when I clicked the shutter, I think this came out pretty good.

I did duplicate one corner to another, then cloned bits here and there so as to keep it from being totally symmetrical, and I think I succeeded. The original had a plain grey sky, so I substituted that as well, to give a bit of . . . content- not to mention context.

No other plugins or applications were used than Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC.
