ARCHITECTURE

Well, there's only a couple of pieces of architecture on my mind: the old house I'm redoing and the house my eldest son is preparing to sell. So, I'm posting one of each-

Exterior of the old house in Sallis, done up in a fanciful sketch/photo composite

Interior shot of my son's masterpiece, a 1952 mid century modern that he did a renovation worthy of those on the television shows, keeping the best features and restructuring those that closed in/cramped up the function.

Really like the processing on the old house in Sallis. The interior image is an excellent image that would/should encourage an interested buyer to explore for more. Well done with the completion of this spin.

Here's last week's offering on Doors - in the 1700s the Dewars family had a liquor business in Jamaica and built themselves a mansion near Montego Bay. It is now a hotel and a popular party/wedding venue. There's stuff here with the seals of Ferdinand and Isabella still visible. So here's a pair of Dewars doors...

doors (1 of 1).jpg

Frivolously edited of course.

I'm a bit behind, and will get my next "assignment", slow shutter up soon maybe..

Missed all ya'll, but may still be a bit scarce this week.

The entry looks inviting and I'm wanting to enter for a closer look of the painting on the wall. Love the reflection in the glass, especially on the right side. Nice capture, Minnie !!!

Here's my failed effort at doing something unusual with a slow shutter.

Blend of 3 photos of a band performance on last week's cruise, two of which are very slow shutter shots, and added another OOF shot of same scene just for bokeh dots and other anomalies of light. I don't like it, but since this is a learning exercise I'm posting it anyway.

I wouldn't consider this to be a total failure Minnie. It's rather interesting, IMO !!!

I find it fascinating and can see it as cover art! S-

I like the mood and colors of your door shot. And good fun with the reflections.

Thanks Dave, I pray it will sell well for his sake!

It was a rather classic place, in huge contrast to "regular" life of the citizenry. (That's Gene on the right side, posing without knowing it).

Thanks Dave. it was fun to work on, and as you know, we learn things every time we embark on a composite. How I think something might work isn't always what happens, and sometimes I discover new things that work better, while some are just a bust.
