Elm Moon

Last week I spun "Moon" which was a joke since not only am I terrible at moon photography, but we had overcast and rain all week. One morning at my insomniac hour I thought to check it and found the moon visible so took a few shots. It was only visible through the elm tree out front, so that's what I got. Elm Moon, 2 shots, same everything except for focal point, blended in PS and converted in Silver Efex. Handheld, barefoot, without my contacts. I like to make things unduly complicated.
Gee thanks Piet, I'm glad you liked it!

Diced and sliced moon sliver, I agree pretty with Piet very cool! I'm reminded of the first time I saw how my much-younger half sister had her kids fairly split desserts: one cut, the other chose first. There were three kids, though so I might be missing a step :) And yeah, I'm sure she wasn't the first parent to ever do this.

Minnie, Do, the moon IS made of cheese.

Love the sawtooth severing. I hear growling in the shadows.

You DO have to teach your husband to use his iPhone camera to capture these Minnie moments.

That should be So the moon... not Do, the moon... Flimsy fingers flying foolishly fast foul. Ah, well. No whiteout on internet, just re-dos. Matt

Did 'The Wheel Of Cheese' crack? laf

I love this, not only for the composition but the unique processing that makes it come to like. Well done! S-

Thanks. The wheel thing does push me to think creative!

And it is a crunchy Moon, cheese or not!

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.
