Shades of Grafton #11 – More pretty shades

Ludwig’s Monday Window – November 21

This old house has been given the treatment. Even the fancy decorations on the front gutter corners. I love these shades, the original craftsman gave his all for this design.

The One-to-Three Photo Processing Challenge

This is the first time I have participated in Kate’s Three Way Photo Challenge. I forgot to add in the original post that I use PaintShop Pro Ultimate 2022 by Corel as my photo editing software.

Here is the original. An old farmhouse in the bush. It is probably over one hundred years old. This house hasn’t been occupied for a few years now. I always look forward to seeing it when I travel to Tenterfield and hope one day that someone has taken her to their heart like me and has renovated her to once more become a home.

One of my favourite effects – Selective Colour, using red as the main colour to catch another of my favourite things to photograph, rust.

This effect is called Coloured Pencil. I like the effect this gives to structures

I haven’t used this effect before but thought it was appropriate. It is called Time Machine and converts images to how photos appeared at a specific time. This effect is probably from when the house was built. The time I chose is 1839

Cee’s FOTD

I though since it’s Floral Friday as well, I’d stick to my #PinkSquares as I am sure there will be at least one pink flower. I am trawling the stats to find some of your favourites.

There is always some likes and some comments and in 2018 there were a few for these posts -the top number for Comment was Pink#11 with thirty-nine comments For some strange reason, the original square image is missing???

Next was Pink#17 with 21 comments. A pink Frangipanni with a bonus Red Shield bug

And to round out the top three Pink#7 with 17 comments. It looks like the fungi had people talking

Now for the number of likes. Third was Pink#22 with twenty-seven likes. A dresser in my besties old house. That’s part of one of her paintings. That’s just how it was, no staging and I saw the scene from across the room and took the photo

Pink#18 received twenty-nine likes.and was second highest. A house on the island of Burano just a ferry ride from Venice.

And the most liked photo was the very last post Pink#31 This post received thirty-six likes and there has bee three recent views in September and October this year. Actually it was more than one photo. I love to grow Begonias. Therefore I just had to show your a few of the varieties I have; their leaves and flowers. I’ll do slideshow to make it easier.

From the past

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #168: Seen Better Days
Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Past Squares

Of course there has to be a song. This is an Australian song that was a big hit. I hope you enjoy it

First is the #PastSquare from the #RoofSquare

Onto a few things that have seen better days

An Australian made car from the 1950’s – a Holden FX

Would you ride this coach?

or go to town in this wagon?

This house is still much the same last time I drove past

Pompeii has definitely seen better days. Also from #SquareTime

This house too is still standing

The Colosseum is maintaining it’s better days appearance

The old truck that “lives” in my street

The remains of bird baths I’ve had over the years. Usually broken by possums trying to find a drink in droughts as I don’t think I have fat birds around here. This was from the #SquareUp

The feature photo is my old chook shed used in #RoofSquare
