Growing a Mo for Movember

Movember-Man-Made-Moustaches-Pin

That’s right, I’ve decided to sign up for this years Movember to help raise money and awareness for men health.

The challenge is to start on the 1st November (tomorrow) with a clean shaven face and then simply grow a moustache for the rest of the month. I can’t remember the last time I had a wet shave but I reckon it could be getting close to 20yrs! I’ll also be taking a photo of the bottom part of my face each day to record my progress. I’ll post them to Twitter to save you all the trauma of having to view them here!

To find out more about this great cause then please visit my Mospace (clicking on the image above will also take you there). Donating is easy and can even be made anonymously if you so wish. Any contribution you wish to make no matter how big or small will make all the difference.

October Topaz Clarity offer

Hi, all. Just a quick post to let you all know that for the rest of October Topaz Labs are offering 25% off of their Clarity plugin. To take advantage of this offer just use the code octclarity at checkout.

Here is what Topaz has to say; “There are a lot of ways to increase depth and definition in a photo, but many methods will leave you with unnatural-looking contrast. The intelligent technology behind Clarity allows you to enhance contrast without over-emphasizing transitions between light and dark areas. This unique approach essentially eliminates the common problem of halos, noise, and artifacts.
Using the adjustment sliders, you can easily strengthen an image’s levels of micro, mid range, and overall contrast. You can even do this selectively by taking advantage of the masking module. With Topaz Clarity, your images will never lack visual impact!”

Just click here to take you straight to the Clarity web page.
