Let’s get on board

Debbies quotation inspired image
Bren’s Mid-Week Monochrome #56: Moorings

“Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time. That is the life of men.”

– Zora Neale Hurston, “Their Eyes Were Watching God”

Going into the yard

Ragtag Daily Prompt Sunday: Yard

In the older cattle yards

And to the new yards

Even some birds have a yard. Satin Bowerbirds hang in their yard and have a dance while singing a tune

A photo of my yard not all that long ago

A peek into a yard in Rome

Some yards are big enough for a horse

Didn’t think of shipyard until the last moment

Someones front yard

A rather eccentric front yard

A bit of a drive through the front yard to get to the house

Please shut the gate

There is always a restful seat in my other yard

Looking back

The word prompt from Bren at ryanphotography: Sepia

I am going back to the Isle of Brac, Croatia to put a bit of sepia onto a few photos as Brac has a certain old world charm. I hope you enjoy my efforts in applying sepia toning with a couple using vignette as well.
