Stand By Me


My favourite film is “Stand By Me“.

Who always stands by me? Greg, my cats…and my iPhone, iPad and iPad mini…

I wanted to capture this in a photo.

This is the finished result after my edits. Read on to see how I got this end result.

This is the original…

Since Gordie Lachance is the main character in the movie I applied the Gordon filter…

Next, I added the text and I wanted it in a handwritten font…

I wanted to give it a border that somehow showed it in a TV format so I applied a soft border…

  1. One of my favourites too. When I was younger, and went swimming, I used to look like Teddy after the guys fell into the leech filled pond, hair licked to the side in a very unattractive way.


  2. Nice. Love that movie to. My book The Sneaker Tree is kind of my ode or attempt to emulate the style of that story but set in the 1980’s which was still kind of an innocent decade in my eyes.
