This is a great find- and your processing is so cool!
blackdog: The bench is ours - mad as hatters ;o)

This is charming Mike, your phone does as well as a camera under these circumstances
blackdog: Many thanks Chris.
Depends which Doormouse.....

There once was a Dormouse who lived in a bed
Of delphiniums (blue) and geraniums (red),
And all the day long he'd a wonderful view
Of geraniums (red) and delphiniums (blue).

A Doctor came hurrying round, and he said:
"Tut-tut, I am sorry to find you in bed.
Just say 'Ninety-nine' while I look at your chest....
Don't you find that chrysanthemums answer the best?"

The Dormouse looked round at the view and replied
(When he'd said "Ninety-nine") that he'd tried and he'd tried,
And much the most answering things that he knew
Were geraniums (red) and delphiniums (blue).

Or the one in Alice in Wonderland...a book I don't like grin
blackdog: I like your tale (tail) but my Dormouse is from Alice by way of Jefferson Airplane - hope you don't mind.

Could it be 'I'm sleepy, leave me alone?!' Lovely image.
blackdog: Most likely someone was trying to get you up too early!
Feed your head - feed your head.
blackdog: Spoken like a true Grace Slick fan ;o)
Ahhhhh yes... Great find and processing.
blackdog: Thank you Jacquelyn ;o)
i don't remember what the dormouse said Mike but it's a great photo...
i have always say... it's not the camera that makes the shot... it's the eye behind the lens....petersmile
blackdog: According to Jefferson Airplane - it was "Feed your head" but then they were a bad influence. Thanks Peter.
"I breathe when I sleep" is the same thing as "I sleep when I breathe!" HA! And I just woke up, Mike..... grin Good one.
blackdog: Exactly - he also knew about girls who drew pictures of things beginning with M, such as mousetraps, memory and muchness.
This is a queer one Mike. The focus seems rather odd and the design of bench rather elaborate.
blackdog: A fake tin type app on my phone - it is quite random in its focussing.

Although I know that "White Rabbit" was a song by Jefferson Airplane in the psychedelic years, I am not sure I make the connection here. According to the song, the message by the Dormouse was to feed your head. In those days, many a subverted message came through songs - like Lucy in a Sky of Diamonds. So I guess that 'feed your head' would allude to partaking in stuff that will make you see partially blurred like your picture.

Or is it: "Every blackdog has its white rabbit day"?
blackdog: The inscription on the bench is a reference to the Jefferson Airplane song. The bench is ours but the blur in the picture was not preconceived, it just seemed appropriate.

I have rested enough sitting on this bench- let's go further, Mike!
