I started a new job today at our local bank as a New Accounts Representative… although by bank standards our dress code is rather casual, it was impressed upon me that we should always look pressed. Hence my two new tools… an iron with lots of steam and a counter top ironing board, just about the right size to be used in an RV. Although the Warning sign pertains to making sure the RV is vented when cooking, I couldn’t help but get a chuckle out of this message in relation to my new tools and my new job.

Anyway, good news is that I now have a full time job with benefits. Bad news is that I have less time for photography. Given that I seemed not to have enough time before…. well let’s just see how this plays out.

This was processed in Topaz Simplify using the Sketch Color preset.

  1. Hi there –

    Sorry I’m just catching up with this new job. We’ve been away for the last couple of weeks — almost out to your area. A friend had a valve replaced in her heart so we went out to Missouri to see her! Not really too close to you….. Hope all is going well with the new job.

  2. This looks like a retro photo, and ironing should be in the past, too, as far as I am concerned. However, there is an ironing board in my bedroom being used as a clotheshorse. Sometimes I really iron something!

  3. I like to iron (have been sewing since childhood)…love this photo and the way you have processed it. Hope the new job is going well.

  4. great processing!

  5. Congrats on the new job!

    I love the colors and processing on this …. you turned an iron into a piece of art! WOW!

  6. Congrats on the new job but just how are you going to be able to iron when the temps are as hot as one?

  7. Congrats! And good luck!

  8. This is lovely–soft watercolor colors and they blend like watercolors, too. The composition is elegant. (Sorry about your having to iron–I can get away with kinda steaming my clothes by hanging them in the shower.)

  9. Congrats on the new job! I hate ironing!

  10. congrats on you new job . . . love the processing in this photo.

  11. I really like all the pastels in this image, even got over my love/hate relationships with ironing.
